    REPORT: JASON PETERS NEEDS SECOND ACHILLES SURGERY AFTER SECOND FALL

    REPORT: JASON PETERS NEEDS SECOND ACHILLES SURGERY AFTER SECOND FALL

    "Jason Peters‘ offseason has gone from bad to
    worse.


    Derrick Gunn of CSNPhilly.com reports that Peters, the Eagles left tackle who
    suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon on March 27, <a href="http://www.csnphilly.com/football-philadelphia-eagles/eagles-talk/Eagles-Peters-needs-second-surgery-after?blockID=707802&amp;feedID=704">has now re-injured the Achilles in an accident
    at his home</a>, six weeks after he had surgery to repair the tendon.</p>


    According to Gunn, Peters was walking in his kitchen using a device designed
    to hold up his foot, so that he could get around without putting any weight on
    his injured Achilles. Unfortunately, the device (perhaps not designed for
    someone who weighs 350 pounds) broke. Peters fell, re-injured the Achilles and
    needs another surgery.</p>


    The report is short on details about when this accident happened, and the
    report says Peters’ “recovery was set back three weeks.” But if, as the report
    says, the home accident was bad enough that Peters ruptured his Achilles again,
    it would seem likely to set Peters back by more than three weeks. Although
    Peters had hoped to beat the odds and play this year after his first surgery was
    deemed a success, a second surgery almost certainly means he will not play at
    all in 2012.</p>


    According to the report, Peters plans to sue the manufacturer of the
    device.</p>


    The injury to Peters — one of the NFL’s best offensive linemen — was a major
    blow to the Eagles. They signed Demetress Bell to replace Peters shortly
    after he suffered the injury."</p>

    [/quote]I know we have had our fair share of injury on our team from a to z.. However I don't wish injury on opposing players. Sorry to hear he hurt it again. I like to have our opponents at full strenth when we beat them so they have no excuse
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    In the midst of this losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    We beat em without Peters and JPP, Tuck, Osi go off for 5+ sacks then eagle fans will say we lost cause Jason wouldn't have allowed that. Lol

    this story must be a fabrication. i feel something even more unfortunate happened to him.


    i bet it broke while he was walking down the hall to drop a deuce. life adds insult to injury whenever it can
