Eagles Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters has ruptured his right Achilles and is expected to miss the season.

Peters injured his leg while training in Texas on Tuesday. He will have surgery to repair the tendon next week.

A five-time Pro Bowl selection, Peters is widely considered one of the best offensive linemen in the NFL. He spent his first five seasons with Buffalo before coming to Philadelphia in 2009.
