Jason Peters‘ offseason has gone from bad to worse.
Derrick Gunn of CSNPhilly.com reports that Peters, the Eagles left tackle who suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon on March 27, has now re-injured the Achilles in an accident at his home, six weeks after he had surgery to repair the tendon.
According to Gunn, Peters was walking in his kitchen using a device designed to hold up his foot, so that he could get around without putting any weight on his injured Achilles. Unfortunately, the device (perhaps not designed for someone who weighs 350 pounds) broke. Peters fell, re-injured the Achilles and needs another surgery.
