Jason Peters will start at left tackle for Philadelphia in Week One at Washington, coach Doug Pederson confirmed today.

Peters has been the Eagles’ starting left tackle for most of the last 11 years, but this year he took a long, strange trip to the position. He initially was an unsigned free agent and it wasn’t clear he was going to play at all. When he finally signed with the Eagles, it was following the injury to right guard Brandon Brooks, and it was announced that Peters was taking Brooks’ spot at right guard. Only when left tackle Andre Dillard also got hurt did it seem like a natural fit for Peters to move back to left tackle.
