Jason Peters on track to play against the Carolina Panthers
17 October 2018 Eagles News
Despite dealing with a torn bicep injury OT Jason Peters will practice this week for the Eagles, according Coach Doug Pederson.
Pederson believes there is no reason to rest Jason Peters for a game or two, and he is good to go. Pederson sentiments on the injury, fall in line with what Coach Stoutland said on Monday in regards to Peters ability to play.
“I’m not a doctor,” Stoutland thought to clarify, “but that guy is a warrior. I don’t think he’s going to miss any time, personally. But we always have a contingency plan,” offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland said on Monday.
In a perfect world, you hope Peters can perform at a “normal Jason Peters” level, but so far this season he’s had a tough time just making it through games. The future hall of famer has dealt with a quad injury, while recovering from ACL/MCL surgery and now he has a bicep injury. Let’s hope the coaches are right with playing Peters versus letting him rest a couple of games.
If Peters is unable to go, the team will immediately look to Big V to hold down the fort if he has to miss anytime. Halapoulivaati Vaitai has played 26 percent of the snaps(115) this season, as he saw 34 snaps vs the Giants on Thursday, 9 snaps vs the Vikings, 71 snaps vs the Bucs in week 2, and 1 snap against the Falcons in week 1.
