Tackle Jason Peters Had Knee Surgery, Set to Practice and Get Back in the Lineup

Eagles fans haven’t seen left tackle Jason Peters since week six, but that could change quickly as the tackle had an arthroscopic procedure to clean up his knee and is ready to return to the lineup.

Coach Doug Pederson stated that Peters had arthroscopic surgery in the last few weeks, but is on the road to recovery and should be back soon.

The coach stated that Peters should take part in practice today, and they will look to see where he stands and go from there about him playing.

Rookie Andre Dillard has been starting in Peters’s place at the tackle spot.

Another player that could return is wide out Alshon Jeffery, he is listed as “day-to-day” with an ankle injury.

Also Pederson says he’s hoping that linebacker Nigel Bradham is ready to come back from his ankle injury to be able to take on the 8-1 Patriots at home at 4:25pm Sunday afternoon.
