The Philadelphia Eagles took another blow to their offense on Friday. The team has announced that left tackle Jason Peters will miss the rest of the season.
He will have surgery on his toe. Head coach Doug Pederson will be without the future Hall of Famer for the final four games of the season.
“It’s an injury that we’ve known about, and he’s literally battled through it,” Pederson said of Peters, a nine-time Pro Bowl selection. “He wanted to be out there with his teammates for the remainder of the season. It’s just to the point now where the injury is a little bit too bad for him to continue.”
According to NBC Philadelphia’s John Clark, Peters has been battling through a broken toe. Clark also adds that the veteran wants to play another season.
But the soon-to-be 39-years-old may get limited looks, like he did this past offseason. The Eagles losing Brandon Brooks opened up a hole on the offensive line for Pederson and President of Football Operations Howie Roseman to bring back Peters.
He was the team’s starting right guard. Now with Peters injured, he’ll be replaced by Nate Herbig.
The former undrafted free agent has appeared in 11 games this season. He’s made eight starts.
