Eagles news: Count Jason Peters in for Sunday against Chiefs


We may be able to count Jason Peters in for Sunday’s matchup between the Eagles and Chiefs.

If you were able to check out the first game of the season between the Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins, you could probably say you were a little down in the dumps around the beginning of the third quarter. Eagles fans had already seen their prized addition at cornerback, Ronald Darby, carted off of the field. Before the first offensive series of the second half could even get going, we learned Jason Peters was lost for the contest as well.

If you were listening to the game on 94 WIP-FM, Howard Eskin gave the report from the sideline. Peters entered the game for the first play of the series, but that would be it. When he returned to sideline, he, at that point, shook his head to the coaching staff, implying he wouldn’t be ale to continue.

The Eagles won, but it was bittersweet. Much of the conversation shifted to how long Darby and Peters would be absent.

Peters returns to practice on Wednesday:

Peters has never ruled out the possibility of him playing against the Kansas City Chiefs. While that’s all fine and dandy, no one really heard that from a team doctor, so it was a little up in the air.

When head coach Doug Pederson addressed the media on Wednesday, Peters’ theory grew some legs as he was elevated from being “day-to-day” to being eligible to return to practice on Wednesday. “Jason Peters is fine. He’ll practice today” said the head coach.

Expect him to be limited, but you can definitely expect him to be on the field. That’s good news from the Eagles leadership about one of their team captains. He’ll be needed as the Eagles will still need to get more out of their running game despite showing some positive signs in game one.
