Report: Eagles’ Peters tore biceps, could keep playing

Philadelphia Eagles left tackle Jason Peters is believed to have torn a biceps muscle after leaving Thursday night’s game and not returning, according to an NFL Network report Friday.The report adds that an MRI is pending, but doctors are “optimistic” Peters will be able to continue playing this year. The 36-year-old told reporters after the game that he was “OK,” and head coach Doug Pederson said Friday morning that he had received “positive” news from the medical staff, calling Peters “day-to-day.”Peters was replaced by Halapoulivaati Vaitai, who filled in at left tackle last year after the nine-time Pro Bowler went down with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Week 7. Vaitai was whistled for six penalties (two false starts, four holding) and allowed seven sacks in 10 starts in 2017, according to STATS, Inc.Now in his 15th season, Peters has battled nagging injuries throughout his career, but he hadn’t missed more than three games in a season since 2004 until last year’s torn ACL. He sat out most of the Eagles’ Week 2 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a quad injury and missed a few snaps in Weeks 1 and 5 before getting hurt Thursday.Right tackle Lane Johnson is also injured, as he hurt his ankle in Week 5 and was in and out of the game against the Giants.
