NFL Injury Report:
Injuries are already piling up for the Philadelphia Eagles,
making the start of the 2013 campaign eerily similar to last season. After
losing Jeremy Maclin for the season, offensive tackle Jason Peters exited
yesterday’s practice session early. Luckily for the Eagles, the ailment isn’t
viewed as significant, as Peters is reportedly dealing with a mild right hamstring
strain, according to Reuben Frank of CSN Philadelphia.
Peters left practice an hour in with an undisclosed injury. Kelly said he doesn't know what the injury is but said he was told not serious.

Jason Peters: Mild right hamstring. Day to day.
— Reuben Frank (@RoobCSN) July 31, 2013
Head Coach Chip Kelly told reporters that the injury isn’t
serious, but the Eagles are still likely to take things slow with Peters
considering his injury history and the fact that he’s dealing with a hamstring
ailment. Even though it’s termed minor at this point, hamstrings are easily
aggravated if players do not receive the proper treatment and rest.
Peters missed all of last season after suffering an Achilles
injury. The Eagles are counting on him to solidify a revamped offensive line, a
unit that was one of the worst in the NFL last year.
