MINNEAPOLIS — Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Jason Peters has left the game with an injury. 

This time Peters left the Vikings game in the second quarter with a knee injury. He’s questionable to return. 

And, now, linebacker Nigel Bradham (ankle) is out. He got hurt in the first half too.

With Peters out, rookie Andre Dillard is in the game. On his first snap, he nearly gave up a sack to Everson Griffen but has seemingly settled in some. The Eagles drafted Dillard to be Peters’ eventually replacement, but having him to back up Peters in theses instances is big too. 

Last season, Peters struggled to play full games, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that he’s struggling with that as a 37-year-old left tackle. 

The Eagles were down 24-10 at halftime and could certainly use both starters back as they try to mount a comeback.
