Philadelphia Eagles wouldn’t possibly place Jason Peters back at LT right?

Well, this isn’t the news most Philadelphia Eagles fans were hoping for.

As ‘Dallas Cowboys Week’ flies by, news surrounding a broken and battered Philadelphia Eagles roster seems as though it comes more frequently than ever. Just this week the ‘Birds’ have announced that wide receiver and team legend DeSean Jackson will again be placed on the team’s injured reserve (he’ll be joined there by defensive tackle Hassan Ridgeway) while 21-day practice windows will be activated for five players who are already there.

That means linebacker T.J. Edwards, safety Rudy Ford, tackle Jason Peters, wide receiver Jalen Reagor, and tight end Dallas Goedert should all see the field soon, hopefully. Meanwhile, four practice squad players were protected on the Wednesday leading up to another important divisional game (defensive back Grayland Arnold, guard Jamon Brown, and defensive tackles T.Y. McGill and Raequan Williams.

Philly’s ‘WentzDay’ practice session was also interesting in that Jack Driscoll, Nathan Gerry, Craig James, Alshon Jeffery, Lane Johnson, and Miles Sanders all sat out. ‘The Bodyguard’ a.k.a. Jason Peters did suit up and participate, however, but it’s where he was taking reps that has quite a few people talking.

Jason Peters back at left tackle? Say it ain’t so!

According to NBC Sports Philadelphia’s Dave Zangaro, Peters took most of the reps at left tackle while Jordan Mailata spent a lot of time lined up on the right side of the formation. As you’d expect, Jason Kelce lined up as the anchor while Nate Herbig lined up at left guard. Matt Pryor lined up at right guard.

Let’s be frank here. No Eagles fan is going to get a good night’s sleep as the ‘Birds’ welcome the Dallas Cowboys, who will be bringing the likes of DeMarcus Lawrence, Aldon Smith, Tyrone Crawford, and Jaylon Smith to Lincoln Financial Field with them.

There isn’t a huge sample size of Jason Peters’ 2020 tape to evaluate, but more often than not, Carson Wentz has been under siege thanks to so many of his offensive linemen, including Peters when he’s been in the lineup), looking like they’re either being pushed around on roller skates or they’re standing in quicksand.

Dallas presents a huge test, and no one’s sure if ‘The Bodyguard’ will start at left tackle yet (Tra Thomas suggested moving him to left guard which is actually a decent idea), but if he is, that’s a thought that doesn’t make any ‘Birds’ fan feel as confident as it used to. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
