Jason Peters will return to practice after undergoing knee scope last month
The Philadelphia Eagles will have their work cut out trying to get a winning streak going against the New England Patriots in Week 11. Fortunately, it appears left tackle Jason Peters may be ready to make his return.

On Wednesday, Eagles coach Doug Pederson told media that Jason Peters underwent an arthroscopic procedure on his knee during his three-week absence.
But he’ll return to practice on Wednesday, and may be back in the lineup on Sunday when the Eagles host the New England Patriots.
This is certainly an encouraging update for the Eagles. Peters’ absence has left a notable void in the protection for quarterback Carson Wentz and his return should provide a much-needed boost up front.
Backup tackle Andre Dilliard has filled in since Peters has been sidelined and it is safe to say that the rookie’s struggles have been felt by the offense. Wentz has been sacked 10 times over the last three games in his absence after allowing just 10 sacks in the first six games of the 2019 NFL season.
Regardless, Philadelphia may still need to exercise some caution for the 37-year-old’s looming return coming off of surgery. Peters’ participation in practice over the week should help to further solidify his status for this week’s homestand against New England.
