Successful Surgery For Peters

The next step in the recovery process for All-Pro left tackle Jason Peters took place on Tuesday morning as he underwent what the team called a "successful surgery" to repair his ruptured right Achilles tendon.

Peters' surgery was performed by Dr. Steve Raikin of the Rothman Institute and was done at Jefferson at the Navy Yard in South Philadelphia.

Peters incurred the injury while training in Texas last Tuesday. The team will not offer a timetable for his return to action. The Eagles re-signed veteran King Dunlap to a one-year deal and also hosted veteran free agent Demetrius Bell over the weekend.

The Eagles have plenty of resources at their disposal whether it's draft (three of top 51 picks), free agency (a reported $16 million in cap space) or trade to fortify the position.

A five-time Pro Bowl selection and four-time All-Pro, Peters was acquired by the Eagles in a trade prior to the 2009 NFL Draft. Originally a rookie free agent signing of Buffalo as a tight end in 2004, Peters thrived working with new offensive line coach Howard Mudd last season.
