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.

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.

Hopefully, all is fine with the veteran and Philadelphia can continue to show the league why their slow start was more slump than reality.
