The Eagles announced on Thursday that tackle Jason Peters underwent a successful arthroscopic partial meniscectomy on his left knee. The procedure was performed today in Philadelphia by team physician Dr. Peter DeLuca of the Rothman Institute.
Peters injured that left knee in the first quarter of last Sunday night's victory in San Francisco. King Dunlap will start at left tackle this Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons in Peters' place.
The two-time All-Pro and three-time Pro Bowl tackle, Peters missed one game last season due to injury (11/15/09 – ankle). While a member of the Buffalo Bills, Peters started all but four games in the 3-plus years at offensive tackle. Orignially, Peters was signed as a rookie free agent tight end for the Bills in 2004, and actually caught a touchdown pass against the Houston Texans in early 2005.
Peters has been officially ruled out this weekend against Atlanta, but no timetable has been set for his return.
