The Eagles’ offensive line will feature it’s 10th different group of starters on Monday night against the Seahawks, but despite a pretty significant injury, it looks like Jason Peters will still be in the lineup.
Despite having a broken, dislocated toe that will require surgery after this season, Eagles’ veteran OL Jason Peters will play tonight vs. Seahawks, though he will be moving to guard to help make up for the lack of mobility, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 30, 2020
Head coach Doug Pederson spoke to reporters last week and confirmed that Peters would be moving back to right guard — where he was expected to play the entire 2020 season before they lost Andre Dillard — and named Jordan Mailata as the starting left tackle in his place. Now we know that the move was more injury-related than performance based.
Last week against the Browns, the Eagles’ OL saw injuries to all (3) of their veterans — Jason Kelce, Lane Johnson, and Jason Peters. Johnson is out for the season, but Kelce and Peters are battling through. The team also had to put Sua Opeta on IR last week, and are still waiting for Jack Driscoll to be ready to return.
Monday nights starting lineup will be: Jason Peters (RG), Matt Pryor (RT), Jason Kelce (C), Jordan Mailata (LT), and Isaac Seumalo (LG).
