Eagles place Peters, Patterson on injury lists
The Philadelphia Eagles trimmed their roster to 75 by placing
All-Pro left tackle Jason Peters and two others on injury
designations and releasing a player.
Peters tore his right Achilles’ tendon in the offseason and was
put on the non-football injury list on Monday. Defensive tackle
Mike Patterson was placed on the non-football illness list while he
continues to recover from brain surgery. Both players are eligible
to return to practice with the team between Weeks 6-9 of the
Guard Mike Gibson was placed on injured reserve because of a hip
injury, and wide receiver Jamel Hamler was released.
Teams must reduce their roster to 53 players by Friday.
The Eagles finish the preseason Thursday against the Jets.
