PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Philadelphia Eagles tackle Jason Peters injured his right knee when a Washington Redskins defender rolled into him and forced him out on a cart.

Peters is a three-time All-Pro selection and has anchored Philadelphia’s line for a decade. Washington lineman Ziggy Hood rolled into Peters, and his right leg immediately twisted in an awkward manner. Peters went down and trainers ran onto the field.

Peters‘ leg was placed in an air cast and the crowd chanted his name as he was placed in the cart. The Eagles surrounded the cart and slapped hands with Peters before he left the field.

Halapoulivaati Vaitai replaced Peters at left tackle for the Eagles.
