Eagles owner "empathizes" with Jason Peters
|Jeffrey Lurie energized at Eagles playground build.|
But Lurie indicated during the Eagles' 17th playground build, this one at 28th and Cecil B. Moore in North Philly that Peters isn't in the dog house.
Though the OTAs are voluntary, Peters' absence in the wake of the change in Eagles head coaches was surprising. Some wondered if he was upset the Eagles slashed his salary in half last year after he sustained a non-football injury, a torn Achilles' tendon.
Though Peters felt he could have gotten back on the field last year, his rehab ahead of schedule the Eagles eventually put him on injured reserve.
