PHILADELPHIA -- Eagles left tackle Jason Peters ruptured the Achilles tendon in his right leg on Tuesday, and surgery is required.

Peters, who was undrafted out of Arkansas and has developed into a key cog on the Philadelphia offensive line, was injured while training in Texas.

Surgery to repair the tendon is scheduled for Tuesday in Philadelphia, and will be performed by Dr. Steve Raikin of the Rothman Institute.

Peters is a 6-foot-4, 340-pound native of Queen City, Texas.
