Well this isn’t good, even if it was expected. As much as I have ragged on Jason Peters since he’s come to Philadelphia, that doesn’t mean that I want King Dunlap playing instead. But, that’s what Andy Reid said is going to happen.
“He had a couple plays that he would have liked to have back,” Reid said Wednesday. “But the rest of it I thought he did a good job with. And I’m sure he’ll tell you the same thing — there are some things that he’ll work on this week. It will be good for him to have some practice here. He didn’t have a chance to get out there and practice with the ones, so he’ll get in and have that opportunity and see how he does.”
Ugh. You think Kevin Kolb was skittish before? Wait until he gets going with Dunlap protecting his blind side. This offensive line can’t get any continuity going this season. Reid said he considered sliding Todd Herremans out to tackle, but ultimately chose Dunlap.
As for Peters, he has a torn meniscus and will have surgery Thursday to clean out the knee. Reid wouldn’t say how long he’ll be out, but I have a feeling it will beyond next week as well.
