Eagles coach Doug Pederson says early signs are optimistic on Jason Peters; Sidney Jones ‘week to week’

Equally concerning might be the hamstring injury suffered by nickel corner Sidney Jones, which led Pederson to characterize Jones as “week to week.” In Pederson-speak, that tends to mean “several weeks.” The Eagles secondary is already missing starting safety Rodney McLeod, out for the season with a knee injury. Thursday night, McLeod’s replacement, rookie Avonte Maddox, had to slide back into the nickel-corner role he was working in, behind Jones, before McLeod went down. The Eagles used corner Rasul Douglas as a safety, though Douglas had never played the position. He survived.
