Eagles OT Jason Peters has a dislocated finger

John Geliebter-USA TODAY Sports

The Eagles' offensive line struggled against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 3, but left tackle Jason Peters may have an excuse. The veteran has been struggling with a dislocated finger since Week 1's win against the Redskinsaccording to Tim McManus of Birds 24/7. Peters noticeably struggled against Chiefs' pass rusher Tamba Hali during Week 3 and some of have suggested that his performance was among his worst as an Eagle.

Peters did not make excuses for his performance against Kansas City last week but did note that he has had to get use to playing with the injury. "I had to adjust a little bit because I had to tape up three of my fingers and I couldn't grab," said Peters. "I had to adjust to Tamba [Hali] in the second half with my hand placement and stuff because I couldn't really grab him with my outside hand. I just had to adjust as far as settling down and start using it a little bit better than I did in the first two quarters."

Peters will not miss time due to the injury, that was re-aggravated during the Chiefs' game, but his performance may suffer as it did in Week 3. For Michael Vick and the Eagles offense, Peters' ability to stop top pass rushers is a major concern.
