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 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.

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.

The line could come back to haunt a head coach - or make him look like a genius. The Eagles had just acquired Jason Peters in a trade with the Buffalo Bills for three draft picks, including a 2009 first-rounder, and given the two-time Pro Bowl left tackle a six-year contract worth more than $60 million. Those two actions alone provided a good idea as to what Andy Reid thought about Peters, but the Eagles' coach also put his feelings into words. Reid said that after studying tape of Peters he "came out feeling that he was the best left tackle in football.

The increasing number of questions about Jason Peters' return is all one needs to know about the state of the Eagles' left tackle situation and the offensive line in general. On the day he officially announced King Dunlap's return to the starting lineup, Eagles coach Andy Reid fielded as many questions about Peters as he did his current left tackle. "There's a chance," Reid said of the injured Peters' playing this season. The fact is that Reid won't have to worry about a Peters return if Dunlap or the rest of the offensive line can't improve enough for the Eagles to have a realistic shot at the playoffs by the time Peters is eligible to play.

YOU KNOW what would be cool? If a coach started a news conference by listing injuries, before reporters even asked about them. Yup, that'd really be something. There must be coaches out there who do that, right? Though no one comes immediately to mind. Chip Kelly is not such a coach. Asked yesterday about the absences of All-Pro left tackle Jason Peters and recent safety acquisition Kenny Phillips from his practice session, Kelly was not in a mood to provide details. Peters just isn't around, and wasn't around last week, either, it turns out. Initially the Eagles said Peters was among a group of players who missed the May 20 workout - which reporters were allowed to watch - but the team said everyone in that group practiced the next day, when reporters were not present.

Suddenly, the Eagles have a fire burning on their front lawn. It had been a smooth and serene offseason for the team, the to-do list meticulously crossed off one by one until all that seemed left to do was kick back, watch some game film, and try to bolster a solid roster in the draft. Then came Friday's news that Jason Peters, their Pro Bowl left tackle, one of the Eagles' two best players in 2011 along with LeSean McCoy, had ruptured his Achilles tendon, probably ending his season.

So much for offensive line continuity. A little more than two weeks after the Eagles finished locking up their starting offensive line, at least through the next three seasons, the strongest link in the group, Jason Peters, ruptured his Achilles tendon. The Pro Bowl left tackle injured his right tendon Tuesday in a football drill. But the Eagles didn't announce Peters' injury until Friday. He will undergo surgery next Tuesday at the Rothman Institute. "We don't know when he will return to the field and we will not speculate on a timeline," Eagles coach Andy Reid said in a statement.

Despite rupturing his right Achilles tendon twice within a month last spring, Jason Peters said on Tuesday that he could have played late last season and that he anticipated playing near his all-pro form from 2011 for the Eagles this coming season. The left tackle met with reporters not long after he went through new Eagles coach Chip Kelly's first workout of the offseason. It was the first time Peters formally spoke with the media since his injury last March. He said that he knew Dec. 1, shortly after the Eagles shut him down for the season, that he was healthy enough to play.

The Eagles will release veteran offensive lineman Todd Herremans, according to league sources. Herremans had been one of the team's two longest-tenured players after spending the first 10 years of his career in Philadelphia. The move gives the Eagles more salary-cap space, but it also leaves them with a vacancy at right guard. The team did not make any announcement Thursday. Herremans, 32, started 124 of his 127 games in an Eagles uniform. He missed 16 games due to injury during the last two seasons.

MOBILE, Ala. - Bill Davis, the defensive coordinator who kept trying to single-cover star receivers with Bradley Fletcher as the Eagles slipped from the playoff picture, remains secure in his post. But the late meltdown of the Birds' secondary has claimed some victims. Last week, former Pro Bowl corner Todd Lyght, who'd assisted Eagles defensive backs coach John Lovett the past two seasons, left to coach Vanderbilt's corners. Yesterday the Eagles announced that Lovett is now a pro scout.

EAGLES running back LeSean McCoy, who suffered an apparently minor knee injury in the season finale against the Giants, will not participate in the Jan. 25 Pro Bowl in Arizona, an NFL source confirmed. Also, wideout Jeremy Maclin and long snapper Jon Dorenbos were added. Maclin, a third alternate, replaces Denver's Demaryius Thomas. Dorenbos was added as a "need" player by coach Jason Garrett. Eagles named earlier were guard Evan Mathis, tackle Jason Peters, linebacker Connor Barwin, center Jason Kelce and returner Darren Sproles.

The Eagles had four players named to the all-pro second team by the Associated Press: Linebacker Connor Barwin, defensive lineman Fletcher Cox, tackle Jason Peters, and returner Darren Sproles. Barwin led the NFC with 141/2 sacks and fell two votes shy of first-team all-pro linebacker Elvis Dumervil of the Baltimore Ravens. Dumervil finished the season with 83 tackles, 141/2 sacks, 21 hurries, and two forced fumbles. Cox did not make the Pro Bowl, which surprised Eagles coach Chip Kelly.

REMEMBER Chris Baker? Jason Peters just barely does. The Eagles' left tackle was asked yesterday about his Sept. 21 ejection from this season's previous Eagles-Redskins game, avenging Baker's blindside block that leveled quarterback Nick Foles. "Hadn't even thought about it," Peters said yesterday, as the Birds prepared for Saturday's NFC East rematch in Landover, Md. "We're going down there to win . . . Point blank. Whatever we've got to do to win, that's what we're going down to do. " Peters said that since Baker is a nose tackle, they probably won't encounter one another that much.

IT DIDN'T get much notice, given that it happened in the course of a soul-crushing defeat, but the Eagles went three-for-three in the red zone last Sunday night against Dallas. The Birds have struggled with the short field all season, especially in the running game, but handing the ball to Chris Polk produced touchdowns of 1 and 5 yards. Darren Sproles also added a 1-yard run. LeSean McCoy? Just before the Sproles TD, McCoy got the ball on a run to the left from the Dallas 4, and he seemed about to score, but safety Barry Church did an excellent job of stopping him just short.

It is never the one thing, not in football, not in any sport, and certainly not in life. Chip Kelly stepped to a podium inside AT&T Stadium after the Eagles had beaten the Cowboys, 33-10, on Thursday, and the first thing he said was that the Eagles' offensive line had just played its finest game of the season - and it probably had. The Eagles rushed for 256 yards, averaging 5.7 per attempt, and Mark Sanchez was sacked just once, and it would be...

ARLINGTON, Texas - It's only gaudy if you can't pull it off. LeSean McCoy rolled out of the locker room and headed toward coach Chip Kelly, who actually took a step backward and began to chuckle. Kelly reached forward, rubbed the lapel of McCoy's white leather jacket and said, "What's this?" "This," said McCoy, "is my Thanksgiving outfit. " He dressed as a guy nicknamed "Shady" should dress, a walking PETA nightmare: Timberland boots, a dark-brown designer leather duffel bag, a light-brown ostrich skin backpack and - the topper - something like Michael Jackson's jacket from "Beat It," only not red. It was as white as Shady's smile, with gold snaps and zippers.

LeSean McCoy wanted to know whether he was cocky. The running back was walking to the podium after the Eagles' 43-24 win over the Titans when he stopped a reporter and asked, "Do you think I'm too cocky? Of all the players you have known, would you put me in the top 10?" You bet. McCoy was in a playful mood. He had just rushed for 130 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries, and even a sarcastic remark a few moments later at the start of his news conference elicited a laugh from the tailback.
