Philadelphia Eagles tackle Jason Peters left Thursday night’s game with an injury. He was injured against the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium.

Peters said after the Eagles win that his biceps was “OK.” However, he is expected to undergo an MRI on Friday.

According to the Cleveland Clinic, if he’s suffering from a biceps tendonitis, it could be painful but it could be healed with cold packs or ice to reduce the swelling. Medications can also be used to relieve the pain.

If it’s worse and it’s a biceps tendon tear, Peters could be forced to have surgery. If he does have surgery, he’ll likely be out for the season, as it heals.

The 36-year-old has been hampered by injuries this season. But now with the short week, he’ll have 10 days to recover to get ready for the Carolina Panthers in Week 7.

Halapoulivaati Vaitai would be the next player up if Peters is not able to give it a go.

Peters has also dealt with a quad injury this season.

Peters — who is considered a future Hall of Famer — has started all six games for the Eagles. He started in Week 3 against the Colts after being listed as questionable after being limited throughout the week in practice.

He has started just 12 games over the past two seasons, as he suffered a season-ending injury last season. He tore his ACL and MCL in October 2017.

The seven games were the fewest in a season for Peters since his rookie season in 2004 with the Buffalo Bills when he appeared in five games and started one.
