Report: Peters Could Return In 2012

The Eagles reportedly worked out former first-round offensive lineman Chris Williams on Wednesday. Well, the Eagles could potentially get an All-Pro offensive lineman back this season.

Howard Eskin of FOX 29 reported on Wednesday night that the Eagles are "cautiously optimistic" about the return of offensive tackle Jason Peters, who ruptured his Achilles in late March.

Per Eskin, Peters' workouts "are amazing" and he is in good shape losing over 25 pounds.

It appeared as if Peters' return would be unlikely after he ruptured the Achilles again in May.

On Monday, head coach Andy Reid said that the Eagles have not placed him on season-ending Injured Reserve because of the possibility that Peters could return.

"He's getting better. He's made progress," Reid said. "He's moving around now outside the pool and the treadmill where we reduce the body weight of the players. He's able to move around (and) do some agility things and push it a little bit. Not to the extent where he's near being cleared yet."

Peters is on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list. Peters is eligible to return to practice between now and Week 9 of the season. After Week 9, the Eagles will either have to place Peters on the 53-man active roster or Injured Reserve.
