Eagles eyeing exemption for Jason Peters

Bylaw would provide a second chance.
On Monday Reid said Jason Peters was "out indefinitely for right now until we make a decision on that."

Under a proposed bylaw change, there would at least be a chance Peters and his torn Achilles' tendon could return from a new version of the injured reserve list eight weeks or more into the 2012 season.

In a couple of weeks NFL owners vote on a proposal to designate one player from each team to return from injured reserve after the eighth week of the season.

Injured reserved is different than the physically unable to perform (PUP) list, where a player has a window to return or go back on IR. Currently going on IR ends a player’s season.

In the new scenario owners are pushing for, one player per team can use the exemption. Peters would be an obvious candidate.

Elsewhere on the injury front, Reid revealed Monday that defensive tackle Mike Patterson (brain surgery) and linebacker Jamar Chaney (neck) won't participate in organized team activities (OTAs) or minicamps but likely will be ready for training camp.

Linebacker Moise Fokou (ankle surgery) and center Jason Kelce (sprained foot) should are cleared for all offseason activities.

Tight end Brent Celek (hernia, shoulder surgery) will be limited in workouts until training camp.

Safety Colt Anderson (ACL surgery) likely will miss training camp.
