Jason Peters elects to have season-ending surgery

Future Hall of Famer Jason Peters' 2020 campaign has come to an end.

Head Coach Doug Pederson announced on Friday that Peters has elected to have season-ending surgery on his toe. Nate Herbig will start Sunday at right guard. It will be the 12th different offensive line combination in 13 games for the Eagles.

Peters returned to the Eagles in July with the intention of playing right guard after Brandon Brooks suffered an Achilles tear. However, projected left tackle Andre Dillard suffered a season-ending biceps tear and the Eagles moved Peters back to the position that he manned since 2009.

Peters initially went on Injured Reserve with the toe injury following the Week 3 game against the Bengals and missed four games. He returned to the lineup at left tackle for the Cowboys game, but the injury still lingered. After right tackle Lane Johnson's season-ending ankle injury, Peters moved to right guard for the past two games. He battled through the injury, but left in the second half of Sunday's game against the Packers.

Acquired in a blockbuster trade with the Buffalo Bills in 2009, Peters started in all 148 regular-season games with the Eagles. In his 17-year NFL career dating back to 2004, Peters has played in 213 career regular-season contests.

A nine-time Pro Bowl selection and two-time first-team All-Pro, Peters is tied for second in franchise history with seven Pro Bowl nominations (two came with Buffalo) with Pro Football Hall of Famers Brian Dawkins and Reggie White.

Pederson said that there's been no discussion with Peters about playing beyond 2020.
