2019 Bills opponents: Eagles likely without Jason Peters vs. Bills

Recommended Posts

Former Bills left tackle Jason Peters is still kicking around with the Eagles.

Those two teams will meet in Week 8, but Peters is likely to sit out the festivities.

Peters sustained a knee injury in the Eagles’ loss to the Vikings last week and Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said this week that Peters is listed as “week-to-week” with his latest injury, per Eagles Wire. Peters started his career in Buffalo from 2004-2008 and has since been on the Eagles.

Without the 37-year-old, the Eagles will has first-round rookie Andre Dillard start at left tackle. The Eagles traded up three slots at the draft to grab Dillard. It will be Dillard’s first-career stat.

Per Pro Football Focus, Dillard gave up a sack, and allowed nine QB hurries last week in relief, the most allowed by anyone in Week 6.

In other related injury news with the Eagles, cornerback Jalen Mills returned to practice this week, along with another former Bills player and cornerback in Ronald Darby. 

But the Eagles did have a lengthy injury report along with their former-Bills player news. Six other players did not participate in Wednesday’s session: Fletcher Cox, DeSean Jackson, Nigel Bradham, Avonte Maddox, Timmy Jernigan, and Darren Sproles. Bradham also is a former Bills player, but is only day-to-day and could be ready in two weeks.

The Eagles also previously employed former Bills linebacker Zach Brown until he was released earlier this week.
