Jason Peters returned to the sideline Wednesday, one day after the Eagles' left tackle practiced with the team. Peters has a back injury that affected his quadriceps and caused him to miss the last two games. Coach Chip Kelly said he did not know whether to classify Peters' absence as a "setback. " "That's a good question," Kelly said before practice. "I just know he can't go today. " Peters was not available for comment again on Wednesday. Thursday will be a big indicator of whether he can play Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

THE EAGLES set team records for points, yards, passing yards and touchdowns as they won the NFC East title in 2013. In Chip Kelly's new offense, LeSean McCoy set team records for rushing yards and total yards from scrimmage. DeSean Jackson had the best season of his six in the NFL. Nick Foles ascended from anonymity to MVP of the Pro Bowl. None of that would have happened without Jason Peters. Lost amid the gaudy numbers and the Chippah hype, Peters, in his 10th season, showed little effect from his disadvantages.

JASON PETERS started at left tackle Sunday and seemed to play reasonably well. I'll take "Things that seemed really important around 1 p.m. Sunday that were forgotten by sundown" for $600, Alex. The mystery of Peters' back didn't get much clearer, but even though he sat out the final minutes of the Eagles' blowout loss to Tampa Bay, Peters said he felt fine after the game. Presumably he is a go for Thursday at Detroit. Really, the Eagles could have played Bernadette Peters at left tackle Sunday.

Jason Peters was absent as the Eagles opened their third week of organized team activities on Tuesday. OTAs are voluntary, but coach Chip Kelly has mostly had full attendance during the first two weeks of workouts. Peters, along with several other Eagles, missed last Monday's practice because of travel delays. The Eagles had no explanation for Tuesday's absence, though. "He's just not here," a team spokesman said. Peters is returning from a ruptured Achilles tendon that caused him to miss all of last season.

Jason Peters returned to practice Saturday for the first time in two weeks, a span that included two missed preseason games because of a hamstring injury. The injury was not serious, but the team was cautious with the five-time Pro Bowl left tackle, who missed all of last season with a twice-ruptured Achilles tendon. Barring a setback, Peters is expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. "I'm suiting up this week," Peters said. "I'm getting out there and getting some good work in against Jacksonville and get ready for Washington.

Jason Peters did not participate in the Eagles' practice Wednesday because of a lingering quadriceps injury, and the team is preparing for the possibility that Peters cannot play Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. "He's as tough a guy as I've been around here in the three years I've been here, and if he can go, he will go," coach Chip Kelly said. "But, he's a guy we've really got to take a real good look at this week in terms of what he can give us. " Peters was hurt in the fourth quarter of the Week 3 win over the Jets.

IT DIDN'T sound as if Jason Peters was going to be contributing any of the $8 million or so he is scheduled to earn this year to a Kickstarter campaign aimed at getting Evan Mathis back in the fold. "Not really," Peters said, when asked if it mattered to him whether Mathis lines up next to him at left guard this season. Peters, the Eagles' seven-time Pro Bowl left tackle, noted he has played alongside quite a few left guards over the years. "It's Al, right now," Peters said, indicating Allen Barbre, who has subbed for Mathis while the two-time Pro Bowler sits out OTAs, Mathis unhappy with his contract.

Eagles left tackle Jason Peters was charged early Wednesday morning with speeding and resisting a police officer by flight in Monroe, La., police told the Monroe News-Star. Peters, driving a white Camaro, was racing a blue sedan about 4:45 a.m. when a police deputy attempted to pull over the vehicles, according to the report, which cited an arrest affidavit. The sedan pulled over, but Peters kept driving and exceeded 100 m.p.h. in the pursuit, police said. Peters eventually pulled over and complied with police when they told him to get out of his car. He was handcuffed, arrested, and charged.

Eagles left tackle Jason Peters was a limited participant in practice on Thursday with a back injury that is affecting his quadriceps, and his status for the game Sunday against the Miami Dolphins remains a question. "He looked good," coach Chip Kelly said. "He didn't go through the full practice, but he looked good in the reps he took. He took reps in team and in all three team periods today. " Peters missed the game Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys. If he doesn't play, the Eagles are expected to keep their same lineup, with Lane Johnson at left tackle.

When Carson Wentz fractured two ribs against Tampa Bay on a hit by a third-string linebacker trying to make the roster, the right side of the Eagles offensive line was being held down – quite literally, it turned out – by rookie Halapoulivaati Vaitai. Every quarterback is only as good as his offensive line allows him to be, so it was welcome news for Wentz this week that right tackle Lane Johnson's expected suspension won't take effect by Sunday. Even if the B sample test corroborates the A sample in the next few days, Johnson would have five days to decide whether to appeal.

The state of the Eagles' offensive line can be understood by looking at who starts at left tackle. Jason Peters, a 34-year-old, 13-year veteran who might one day give an induction speech at the Hall of Fame, is still protecting the quarterback's blind side. Even though that quarterback will be a rookie, Peters' presence suggests the line is built for this season. When factoring in left guard Allen Barbre, center Jason Kelce, right guard Brandon Brooks, and right tackle Lane Johnson, the Eagles are not waiting for 2018 with this group.

Les Bowen: Can't be sure Wentz 'ready' I have a feeling there is a reason the Eagles haven't started a rookie quarterback in their opener since Davey O'Brien in 1939. And that reason is not that it's a brilliant new concept nobody ever considered before. I also have a feeling that the team made that trade with the Vikings, dispatching Sam Bradford to Minnesota, because the Eagles were getting back a first-round pick and a fourth-rounder that can be better if the Vikings are really good.

Zach Ertz's phone rang around 8 a.m. Saturday morning. It was Sam Bradford, one of the Eagles tight end's best friends on the team, and he had called to tell Ertz that he had just been traded to the Vikings. "I think I was the first person Sam called," Ertz said Monday. Ertz was one of the most vocal supporters of Bradford as the Eagles weighed whether to re-sign the quarterback during the offseason. When they did bring him back, Ertz and wide receiver Jordan Matthews flew to Oklahoma a few weeks later to work out with Bradford.

BASED ON their draft pedigree, you would think defensive end Marcus Smith and cornerback Eric Rowe would have little to worry about when the Eagles make their final cuts this weekend. Smith, after all, was the Eagles' first-round pick only two years ago. Rowe was taken in the second round last year. But pedigree doesn't mean a whole lot when the guy who drafted you now works 3,000 miles away. Both Smith and Rowe find themselves on the roster bubble as head coach Doug Pederson and executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman try to decide on their best season-opening 53 players.

THE EAGLES drafted eight players in 2007, five before they took Brent Celek 162nd overall, two after choosing Celek in the fifth round. None of the other seven players the team assembled then still plays football for a living. "I think it's been a few years" since anyone else in his Eagles draft class played in the NFL, Celek said this week. He's right - second-round quarterback Kevin Kolb and third-round linebacker Stewart Bradley both finished their careers in 2012. Everyone else was done before that.

DOUG PEDERSON didn't even try to pretend the Eagles would be fine with the linebackers they had on hand, when Pederson was asked about the depth situation there Saturday, in the wake of Joe Walker's season-ending ACL tear. "Obviously something is going to have to be done," Pederson said. Sunday evening, league sources confirmed an ESPN report that the Eagles were signing 31-year-old linebacker Stephen Tulloch, who played for defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz in Tennessee and Detroit.

Sam Bradford entered the preseason enthused by a clean bill of health with full clearance for the entire exhibition schedule. Bradford started the first game of the preseason for the first time since 2013, and he stayed in for a grand total of three plays. The quick hook in last Thursday's game was the result of the Eagles offense benefiting from a short field and scoring quickly. But it gave Bradford only one pass and two handoffs to celebrate. Bradford will play more Thursday night when the Eagles play the Pittsburgh Steelers.

ISAAC SEUMALO stacked a bunch of gold bars over the weekend. Fans of an Eagles team with a suddenly scrambled offensive line are just going to have to hope he finds a way to redeem them. Seumalo is the third-round rookie guard who just a week ago didn't look like a contender for a starting job. That was before news leaked that right tackle Lane Johnson almost certainly will be suspended 10 games for his second PED violation. By the commutative property of offensive-line play, that affects Seumalo, who moved up to the first unit, with first-team left guard Allen Barbre moving to right tackle for Saturday and Sunday practices.

Doug Pederson is preparing for the possibility that Lane Johnson is suspended 10 games for his second violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs, as reports have indicated. Johnson has not been suspended, but Pederson said he "must anticipate" that the suspension could be levied. "You've always got to be mindful of that, obviously, in the back of your mind," Pederson said. "If that's the case, if it's upheld, we've got to be prepared to make some moves. And until it happens, we go full steam, but at the same time, we also know we've got to be smart about it to have people ready to go, if it is upheld.
