Eagles LT Jason Peters (injured reserve) underwent surgery to repair his torn ACL on Friday.
Going under the knife just four days after going down is an indication Peters had a clean tear, and few, if any, complicating factors. It bodes well for his chances of a quick, setback-free recovery. Peters turns 36 in January. It's unclear if he plans to attempt a comeback in 2018. Oct 30 - 2:00 PM

Eagles placed LT Jason Peters (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Peters was already out for the year, but this clears a roster spot for OT Taylor Hart. Entering his age-36 season, Peters isn't a lock to be back at his $11.6 million cap number. The Eagles can save $8 million from making Peters a post-June cut.

Eagles LT Jason Peters tore his ACL and MCL Monday night against Washington.

There was some hope he was just dealing with an MCL injury, but an MRI on Tuesday revealed the extent of the damage. It is a massive blow to the Eagles' offensive line which may require them to move RT Lane Johnson to the left side. Halapoulivaati Vaitai, who filled in for Peters Monday night, is the other option. 36 in January, it is fair to wonder if Peters has played his final snap.

Eagles LT Jason Peters is believed to have suffered an MCL tear in his right knee Monday night against Washington.

In some good news, Adam Schefter reports Peters has avoided an ACL tear, but this is still likely a season-ending injury. Philly did not move Lane Johnson to the left side on Monday night, instead replacing Peters with Halapoulivaati Vaitai, but they could make the switch in practice this week.

Eagles LT Jason Peters was carted off Week 7 against the Redskins with a right knee injury.

His knee got hit from the outside and bent inward in a gruesome way. He writhed on the field in pain before trainers had to fit him for an air cast and eventually cart him off the field. It's almost surely a season-ending injury for the 35-year-old. Halapoulivaati Vaitai has replaced Peters at left tackle.

Eagles LT Jason Peters (groin) is "fine" and will practice Wednesday.

Peters played just 32-of-69 snaps in the Week 1 win over Washington after suffering a first-half groin injury. He remained on the sideline, suggesting it wasn't serious. Peters will be back out there this week against the Chiefs.
Sep 13 - 10:37 AM

Eagles LT Jason Peters exited Week 1 against the Redskins with a groin injury.

Peters left in the second quarter and came back out after halftime but quickly left again. He remains on the sideline in a helmet, suggesting it's not too serious. Halapoulivaati Vaitai is in the game on Carson Wentz's blind side.
Sep 10 - 2:52 PM

Eagles signed LT Jason Peters to a one-year extension through 2019.

Ask and you shall receive. Peters said Tuesday he wanted security and to retire with the Eagles. He's now under contract for $32.5 million over the next three years and gets $15.5 million guaranteed after having no guaranteed money left on his prior deal. Still one of the premier left tackles in the sport, Peters is signed through his age-37 season. Once thought to be the left tackle of the future, RT Lane Johnson will stay on the right side.
Jun 14 - 9:53 AM

Eagles LT Jason Peters said he is looking for a reworked contract which does not force him to go "year to year."

The 35-year-old tackle added he wants to retire with the Eagles. With no guaranteed money over the final two years of his deal, there was speculation the Eagles would move on from Peters this offseason. He clearly wants to avoid the same drama moving forward, although he will likely have to take a pay cut from the nearly $21 million in salary and bonuses he is scheduled to make the next two seasons to gain guaranteed cash.
Jun 13 - 11:26 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Eagles will retain LT Jason Peters.

The Eagles have some cap concerns and needs at high-priced positions, so there had been some speculation they would move on from the veteran tackle or at the very least ask him to take a pay cut. Neither option appears like it will happen, so Peters will make $10.7 million in salary and bonuses to protect Carson Wentz's blindside in 2017.
Feb 23 - 10:20 AM

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports the Eagles want LT Jason Peters to take a pay cut.

The Eagles have touched base with Peters, but it's unclear where he's leaning on the matter. Peters carries a cap number of $11.7 million, and the Eagles want that number to come down as Peters turned 35 in January. Lane Johnson is the left tackle of the future in Philly and signed a mega-extension last offseason, but he was slapped with a 10-game PEDs ban and is on thin ice with the league. Peters has a ton of leverage, while the Eagles have minimal cap room.

Eagles EVP Howie Roseman said the team "certainly" wants LT Jason Peters to return next season.

"He has really ingrained himself as a leader of this football team," Roseman said. "Anyone who watched us play saw the impact he has on the game. We certainly want to have him back." While Peters, who will turn 35 later this month, is still a top-flight left tackle, money will be the primary sticking point in his return. Peters is owed a $9.95-million salary and will cost $11.2 million against the cap next year. While his play this season justifies that salary, the Eagles are already paying RT Lane Johnson like a left tackle, and they could use the cap space. Still, it sounds like Peters is in Philly's plans moving forward.
Jan 10 - 10:02 AM

Eagles LT Jason Peters exited Week 11 against the Seahawks with a forearm injury, but he returned in the second quarter.

Peters was taken straight to the X-ray room after exiting the game with a left forearm injury in the first quarter, but he was later cleared to return to the game.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said LT Jason Peters' back has not been an issue this offseason.

34-year-old Peters' back was problematic all last season, costing him two games and hurting his pass protection. "We can’t, as a staff, be on the field with our players," Pederson acknowledged. "But what I’ve seen in the weight room and talked to our strength and conditioning staff, he’s done a good job." Peters was not present at the first week of voluntary workouts, but he is expected to participate in the upcoming minicamp. After adding Brandon Brooks and Stefen Wisniewski in free agency, Philadelphia's offensive line should be much improved this season.

New Eagles coach Doug Pederson wants to keep LT Jason Peters on the roster.

"I think J.P.’s got several good years left in him," Pederson said. "I think that he does the right things in the offseason to get himself ready to go for another year." Coming off an injury-riddled season, there was some speculation the Eagles would move on from Peters and his $9.2 million cap hit. It does not appear that will happen, but the front office could still ask the 34-year-old former All-Pro to take a pay cut or restructure his deal.
