Eagles beat reporter Geoff Mosher confirmed.


"OK, I have confirmation from team source: Peters sustained rupture Achillees. Surgery set for Tuesday. Team likely to announce soon.


Obviously I'm not an Eagles fan but that's a tough loss, wow. He was one of the best LT in the league. Two of Philadelphia's best players both hit with Achilles injuries this year (Ryan Howard).

Edit:

Also now reported on the Eagles website

This could be a devastating injury...

he is such a great player. So athletic for his size (great at getting to the 2nd level and blocking downfield).

Awesome.

Yeah, he is great at getting downfield on those blocks. Amazing for a man of his size to be able to do that.

Outside of Vick (simply based on the position he plays), Peters was probably the most indispensable player on the team. What an absolutely devastating blow.
