According to a league source, Peters ruptured his Achilles tendon again after the Roll-A-Bout he was using malfunctioned. Peters was maneuvering in his kitchen when the device broke, and he fell on his face and re-injured the Achilles.
The five-time Pro Bowler needed a second surgery, and his recovery was set back three weeks. He is going to sue the manufacturer of the device.
Alright, so it’s official. The higher powers hate the Eagles. Despite the Roll-A-Bout Corporation’s assertions, I bet they never tested the crutch replacement device on a man of Peters’s size and power.
