Some guys have all the luck and others, well, they hate those guys. Jason Peters fits firmly into the latter category right about now.

Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle Jason Peters ruptured his right Achilles tendon a second time in a few weeks, but this time he was in his own home when it happened.

The five-time Pro Bowler was using a Roll-A-Bout – which is essentially crutches on wheels – when the device malfunctioned. As it broke, Peters fell on his face and re-injured his surgically repaired Achilles.

That just plain sucks. There’s no other word for it.

Peters initially ruptured his Achilles on March 27, and had surgery to repair the injury. He was hoping to return at some point during the 2012 season, but this second injury to the same tendon will put his career in jeopardy.

The 30-year-old stalwart left tackle has claimed he will sue the manufacturer of the Roll-A-Bout as a result of the accident. I would too.

It was a long-shot that Peters would have actually played in 2012, but now it’s almost certain that he won’t be back. The Eagles signed free agent Demetress Bell this offseason just in case Peters couldn’t make it back. Now there’s a chance Peters will never play again.
