Report: Jason Peters Placed on IR
After being labeled as questionable on Friday, Eagles starting left tackle Jason Peters is moving to IR. Peters has a toe injury that will apparently take several weeks to heal.
This is another huge blow to the Eagles and their already depleted offensive line. The question now becomes “who starts at left tackle?”. I’d have to imagine that rookie Jack Driscoll would get the start, and Matt Pryor would stay at left guard. The Eagles have been very high on Driscoll and it’s pretty obvious as to why. This news isn’t ideal, as the Eagles play tomorrow, and they will now have to make a decision as to who starts a left tackle. We have seen in previous years that this team goes by the motto “Next Man Up”, and in Week 4, it looks like they will already have to start using it.
