Eagles LT Jason Peters underwent finger surgery following the season.
Peters skipped the Pro Bowl because he needed to repair a finger fracture/dislocation, per his agent. The 32-year-old played with the injury for much of the season but just taped his fingers up. He also battled shoulder, quad and pectoral issues in 2013, but didn't miss a start. With a new five-year, $51.3 million contract in hand, Peters will be full-go for the offseason program.

Eagles agreed to terms with LT Jason Peters on a four-year, $41.3 million contract extension.

The agreement includes $19.55 million guaranteed and will be tacked onto Peters' current deal, which had one year and $9.65 million remaining. So he's now owed $51.3 million over the next five seasons, through the 2018 campaign. It's a ton of coin for a 32-year-old player just two seasons removed from an Achilles' tendon rupture, but the freakishly athletic Peters has certainly earned it on the field. He's been a first-team All-Pro twice, a six-time Pro Bowler, and graded out in the top-four of ProFootballFocus' tackle grades in his last two healthy seasons. When he missed the entire 2012 season, the Eagles offensive line crumbled epically. If right tackle Lane Johnson can capitalize on his talent, Nick Foles is going to be protected very well for the next few seasons. The Eagles arguably boast the best offensive line in the game right now.

The Philadelphia Inquirer expects the Eagles to consider signing LT Jason Peters to a contract extension this offseason.

Peters is signed for $9.65 million in 2014, the final year of his contract. He was healthy for all 16 games this season and graded out as the No. 4 left tackle by Pro Football Focus. Already the highest paid offensive lineman in the league, Peters is set up for one last big contract. He could command a deal similar to the $33 million guaranteed Ryan Clady received from the Broncos last offseason.

Eagles LT Jason Peters (quad) is active for Sunday's Week 11 game against the Redskins.

Peters got just one day of practice in this week, but the former All-Pro is ready to protect Nick Foles' blind side. However, they'll be without top corner Bradley Fletcher (pectoral) and speed linebacker Mychal Kendricks (knee), leaving Roc Carmichael and Najee Goode to start. With the weather in Philly fine, it's a good spot for the Redskins passing game. The rest of the Eagles inactives: QB Michael Vick, WR Damaris Johnson, S Earl Wolff, LB Jake Knott and T Dennis Kelly.

Jason Peters (quad) remained out of practice Wednesday.

At this point, it would be a surprise if the Eagles had their starting left tackle for Sunday's game against the Redskins. They're preparing journeyman Allen Barbre to start. Peters hasn't returned to his All-Pro form since his Achilles' tear, but he'd still be a major loss. The former Bill is ProFootballFocus' No. 22 tackle among 76 qualifiers so far this season.

Eagles LT Jason Peters (quad) is not practicing Tuesday.

Peters was injured in the first quarter of Week 10 and immediately ruled out for the game. He could be looking at a multi-week absence. Allen Barbre replaced Peters last week and should draw the start at left tackle.

Eagles LT Jason Peters left Sunday's game at Green Bay in the first quarter with a quad injury and will not return.

Peters had himself a rough day. He came into this game with a pectoral issue, went to the locker room early on to get checked for a concussion and then came back in only to limp off with a quad strain. Peters was ruled out extremely quickly, suggesting a serious pull. The former All-Pro has had an inconsistent year, but backup Allen Barbre still represents a massive downgrade. The Eagles also lost their highly athletic middle linebacker, Mychal Kendricks, to a knee injury in the first quarter.

The Philadelphia Inquirer expects Eagles LT Jason Peters to play out the final year of his contract in 2014.

Peters is due a $10 million salary in the final year of a six-year, $60.57 million deal. After missing all of last season with a ruptured Achilles', Peters has returned close to his All-Pro form. Per Pro Football Focus, he's allowed just one sack. Coach Chip Kelly also praised Peters' run blocking.

Eagles LT Jason Peters (pectoral) is practicing Tuesday.

Peters was forced from Sunday's game late in the third quarter with a pectoral injury, and did not return. His exact level of participation isn't yet available, but the fact that he was able to practice is a good sign. Barring a setback, Peters should play in Week 10 against the Packers.
Tue, Nov 5, 2013 12:00:00 PM

Eagles LT Jason Peters was forced from Philadelphia's Week 9 game against the Raiders with a pectoral injury, and is questionable to return.

Peters went down midway through the third quarter, and remained out in the fourth. With the Eagles routing the Raiders, his day is likely through. Allen Barbre is now in the game on Nick Foles' blindside.

Jason Peters (shoulder) will practice Thursday.

The injury that briefly sidelined Peters during last week's win at Tampa was never considered serious. The Eagles will have their left tackle for this week's game against a DeMarcus Ware-less Cowboys.

Jason Peters (shoulder) is just doing some light running at Wednesday's practice.

Peters continues to take it easy after sustaining a minor shoulder injury in the win at Tampa in Week 6. The lynchpin of the Eagles offensive line is still expected to be fine for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Wed, Oct 16, 2013 11:30:00 AM

Eagles LT Jason Peters (shoulder) is not practicing Tuesday.

Peters briefly exited Week 6 with a shoulder issue, but was able to finish the game. He's expected to practice in full Wednesday and shouldn't be in any danger of missing Sunday's matchup with the Cowboys.

Eagles LT Jason Peters (shoulder) will practice in full Wednesday.

Peters briefly left Sunday's win at Tampa with a shoulder issue, but was able to finish out the game. He's not playing at the All-Pro level he was prior to his two Achilles' tendon tears, but he is a big reason the Eagles have the league's best run-blocking unit.
Tue, Oct 15, 2013 09:23:00 AM

Eagles LT Jason Peters will play in Saturday's preseason game, his first game action since the 2011 season.

Peters has battled back from two right Achilles' ruptures. Even if he's 80 percent of what he was, it's huge for the Eagles. In 2011, Peters graded out as Pro Football Focus' best tackle by a wide margin and was a first-team All-Pro. An offensive line of Peters, Evan Mathis, Jason Kelce, Todd Herremans and rookie Lane Johnson has a chance to be one of the league's best. It's great news for Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy.
