Peters Returns to Practice on Monday

It’s unclear if we’ll see this Sunday, but Corey Peters returning to practice is a step in the right direction.

A sight that hadn’t been seen since last year occurred Monday afternoon when defensive tackle Corey Peters was on the field wearing a helmet and shoulder pads.

The third-year defensive tackle practiced for the first time in 2012 Monday as he makes his way back from an offseason foot injury.

“He practiced on a limited basis and we will up his participation as the week goes on,” head coach Mike Smith said after Monday’s session. “Again, by rule, we have 21 days to activate him, but it was very nice to see Corey Peters with a football helmet and shoulder pads, out on the field today.”

Smith wouldn’t say whether Peters would be available to play in Sunday’s game against Philadelphia. Because of his designation on the reserve/non-football injury list, Peters is eligible to participate in practice until Week 9 before he’d have to be activated to the 53-man roster or given another designation to save a roster spot.

Smith also said LB Stephen Nicholas and TE Michael Palmer returned to full practice Monday.
