Jason Peters, Todd Herremans cleared to return to Eagles offensive line

Rob Carr

Both Jason Peters and Todd Herremans are cleared to resume football activities at this point in the offseason, though Jason Kelce is still a ways off from getting such clearance himself.

The Philadelphia Eagles have a big question mark when it comes to their offensive line, primarily due to serious injuries to key players in 2012. Jason Peters, Jason Kelce and Todd Herremans suffered significant injuries and missed playing time in 2012.

According to Tim McManus of PhillyMag.com, though, at least two of those players are on track to take part in offseason activity to prepare for the regular season. Peters, who suffered a ruptured Achilles and missed the entirety of the 2012 season, is healthy and ready to go. He's reportedly cleared already and will be with the team when its offseason program gets underway.

Further confirming this is the fact that Chip Kelley said that Peters is ready to go for minicamps with the team. Provided he doesn't suffer any setbacks, that would indicate that he'll be ready to take a starting position for the regular season, as noted by Bleeding Green Nation.

Herremans suffered a myriad of injuries to his right foot against the New Orleans Saints last November, and missed the rest of the season. He had a dislocated bone, fractures and torn ligaments in the foot. But he's been cleared to resume full football activity and expects to be in good shape after a few weeks of offseason training.

Kelce seems a bit further away at this point. He suffered a torn MCL and a partially torn ACL, and is still a couple months away from being healthy. With those kinds of injuries, it's usually a long while before a player is totally back to normal. It's unclear if he'll be ready for any of the offseason activities, but it's not totally unlikely.
