The Philadelphia Eagles are dealing with another significant injury. The team placed left tackle Jason Peters on injured reserve Saturday, the team confirmed.

Peters did not practice Wednesday or Thursday due to an illness. He returned to the team Friday, but was limited in practice due to a foot injury. The team sent Peters for an MRI, which revealed the severity of his toe injury, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Due to the new injured reserve rules, Peters would be eligible to return to practice after three weeks. Peters could be back for the team’s Week 7 game against the New York Giants if he quickly heals.

Eagles continue to be hit hard by injuries

The Eagles have dealt with multiple key injuries in 2020. The team will not have DeSean Jackson, Alshon Jeffery, Avonte Maddox and Trevor Williams against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 4. Receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside is also listed as doubtful for the contest due to a calf injury.

On top of that, the team won’t have Dallas Goedert, Jalen Reagor or guard Isaac Seumalo for the contest. All three players were placed on injured reserve, and are not eligible to return yet.

Through three weeks, the Eagles have struggled to overcome those injuries. The team sits at 0-2-1, and desperately needs a win in Week 4 to stay competitive in the NFC East.
