Pro Bowl OT Peters ruptures Achilles' tendon

With Peters out, Vick might have to scramble a bit more.
The Eagles revealed that left tackle Jason Peters ruptured the Achilles' tendon in his right leg Tuesday while training in Texas.

Surgery is scheduled for Tuesday by Dr. Steve Raikin of the Rothman Institute.

The announcement came shortly after the Eagles signed veteran offensive lineman King Dunlap to a one-year contract.

Though Dunlap is a reliable backup who can play either tackle position, the Eagles now must explore selecting an offensive lineman like Riley Reiff of Iowa with the15th overall pick in the first round of the NFL draft.
