Jason Peters ruptures Achilles tendon

Philadelphia Eagles All-Pro offensive tackle Jason Peters has ruptured his Achilles tendon for the second time. Peters ruptured his Achilles during a fall at his home after initially tearing the Achilles in March working out in Texas and having it surgically repaired.

It's unclear how long the setback will sideline him.

The Eagles signed free agent offensive tackle Demetress Bell to fill Peters' spot and also re-signed tackle King Dunla and drafted tackle Dennis Kelly in the fifth round.
