Peters Will Return For Colts Game

All-Pro left tackle Jason Peters told reporters on Monday that he took reps in practice and will start this Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts. Peters tore his meniscus in the first quarter of the win over the 49ers on Oct. 10 and missed the last two games. King Dunlap started in Peters' place, but suffered a bone bruise on Oct. 24 against the Titans. Dunlap's status for this Sunday's game in unknown.

Peters' return comes at a crucial time as he will have to contain one of the league's best defensive ends in Dwight Freeney, who has 3.0 sacks this season. The Colts host the Houston Texans tonight on Monday Night Football. Freeney had 24.0 sacks between 2008 and 2009.

The Eagles practiced for the first time since the Titans game on Monday as the team got to rest during the bye week. The Eagles do not have to release an official injury report until Wednesday. The Eagles will be off on Tuesday before returning to the practice field on Wednesday.
