Bad news the morning after a 34-13 beatdown of the New York Giants for the Philadelphia Eagles. The reigning champs had a much needed bounce-back game on Thursday night against their division rival Giants.
Unfortunately, the adversity keeps coming for Philly as news breaks that one of their star players has suffered a significant injury.
#Eagles LT Jason Peters is believed to have suffered a torn bicep, though he told reporters post-game he was OK. I’m told doctors are optimistic that he’ll be able to keep playing, though the MRI is pending.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 12, 2018
Veteran left tackle Jason Peters apparently tore a bicep during Thursday night's game in New York. After leaving the game early against the Giants, Peters told reporters he was fine. Team doctors are optimistic that the 9-time Pro Bowler will be able to continue playing through it.
The 15-year veteran in Peters is a huge piece to the Eagles' offense. Nicknamed the "Bodyguard", you get a good idea of his responsibility on the field: protect the quarterback. Losing him for the second year in a row would be a huge blow to an offense that just got back on track with 34 points against New York.
Sources are telling me Jason Peters May have a torn right biceps but it’s the kind he can still play with.... MRI will tell more tomorrow— Derrick Gunn (@RealDGunnNBCS) October 12, 2018
Hopefully, all is fine with the veteran and Philadelphia can continue to show the league why their slow start was more slump than reality.
