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.

WHILE MUCH HAS been made of the money that the Eagles are spending on the quarterback position this year, the fact of the matter is that the $22.35 million in 2016 salary-cap space that will be occupied by Sam Bradford ($12.5M), Chase Daniel ($5M) and Carson Wentz ($4.8M) is just the 11th-highest cap total for the position in the league. Given Bradford's solid play the second half of last season and Daniel's photographic knowledge of Doug Pederson's offense and Wentz's sky's-the-limit potential, you can make a decent argument that $22.35 million is a bargain.

Before Halapoulivaati Vaitai begins playing for the Eagles, the rookie offensive lineman will have a nickname. Howie Roseman did not even attempt saying "hal-lah-poo-lee-VAH-tee," instead calling the team's fifth-round pick "Big V. " It's a nickname that Eagles fans might need to remember. Vaitai, a 6-foot-6, 315-pound tackle from Texas Christian, is an intriguing prospect whom the Eagles will try to develop at tackle. He also was a player the Eagles considered trading up to acquire before he slipped to the No. 164 pick.

This was Carson Wentz's day, but the Eagles couldn't avoid the other quarterback who wasn't in the room and hasn't been at the NovaCare Complex since requesting to be traded on Monday. Nor should Howie Roseman and Doug Pederson have been allowed to avoid him after they made the unprecedented decision to move up to the No. 2 pick in the NFL draft for a quarterback when they already had an entrenched starter in place. Whether you agree with Sam Bradford's reaction to what transpired last week or not - and it says here that he has overestimated his worth - what shouldn't be argued is that the Eagles did a poor job of anticipating the aftershocks of their franchise-altering trade.

Offensive linemen are not, by nature, complainers. The role they chose on a football field or, more likely, the role that chose them is a sentence to a silent, grinding existence. It isn't fun, but, really, no one wants to hear it. Lane Johnson, who grew up in the little crossroads town of Groveton, Texas, and graduated Groveton High School with 34 other classmates, doesn't expect playing tackle in the NFL to be easy. When your first job back home was digging graves for $8 an hour, you don't expect very much to be easy.

JASON PETERS is, without question, one of the best offensive tackles of his era. There is Peters and there is Walter Jones and then there is everyone else. And everyone else includes Jonathan Ogden, Orlando Pace and Willie Roaf, who, like Jones, happen to have bronze busts in Canton. Five years after he retires and becomes eligible for the Hall of Fame, I will passionately lobby my fellow Pro Football Hall of Fame selectors to put Peters into Canton in his first year of eligibility.

THIS IS what the Eagles should have done: After snookering the Miami Dolphins out of the eighth pick in the draft last month, they should have sat on their hands, selected one of the three of four appealing options that figure to be on the board at No. 8 next Thursday - Ronnie Stanley? Ezekiel Elliott? Vernon Hargreaves? - and taken a well-deserved bow. Instead, they overdosed on testosterone and decided to show the rest of the NFL how smart they are. "We're going to invest in quarterbacks," executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman said after the Eagles swapped a batch of draft picks, among them the No. 8 pick, their first-round selection next year and a second-round pick in 2018, to Cleveland for the second pick in the draft, which they plan to use on the Los Angeles Rams' sloppy seconds - either Division I-AA product Carson Wentz or Cal's Jared Goff.

The Eagles signed offensive lineman Stefen Wisniewski to a one-year deal on Monday. The addition upgrades the team's offensive line and might even provide a starter at left guard. Matt Tobin also signed his restricted free-agent tender on Monday, bringing him back onto the roster for the start of the team's offseason program. Wisniewski, 27, was a second-round pick in 2011 out of Penn State who has started all 77 games in a five-year career with the Oakland Raiders and Jacksonville Jaguars.

When the window for negotiations opened Monday, two days before the start of free agency, Brandon Brooks said he received text messages from three Eagles offensive linemen, among others, urging him to sign with their team. Center Jason Kelce was one of the first to reach out to the free- agent guard. It shouldn't have come as a surprise. Kelce stood to benefit more than anyone. Last season's struggles on the interior of the line were, in part, of his own doing. And some of his problems were attributed to having not one but two new guards playing at his side.

SOMEDAY, we will be privy to the pictures Howie Roseman has of Miami Dolphins executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum that helped him facilitate one of the great NFL trade robberies of the salary-cap era. For now, it's enough to know that cornerback Byron Maxwell and his XXXL contract are somebody else's problem and the Eagles are picking five spots higher in the first round of next month's draft than they were three days...

THE MORE you listen to the Eagles talk, the more it seems as if Jason Peters might be the most important player on the team. At the very least, he's the most important player who wears normal-sized sleeves. That could change in a hurry, of course, because that's how it goes during the maddest month of the NFL schedule. We began the week wondering whether the $18 million in salary-cap space that we thought the Eagles had would be enough to address cornerback, safety, and the offensive line.
