LT Peters Ruptures Achilles

The Philadelphia Eagles today announced left tackle Jason Peters ruptured his Achilles tendon in his right leg on Tuesday, March 27, while training in Texas. Surgery to repair the tendon is scheduled for Tuesday, April 2, in Philadelphia and will be performed by Dr. Steve Raikin of the Rothman Institute.

Peters is a five-time Pro Bowler and a four-time All-Pro selection and has started 42 games for the Eagles at left tackle over the last three seasons. Behind Peters, the Eagles' options at left tackle include Todd Herremans, who started in place of Peters against the Washington Redskins last season, and King Dunlap, who agreed to terms on a one-year deal to return to the Eagles on Friday.
