Falcons | Corey Peters to have surgery

Atlanta Falcons DT Corey Peters (Achilles') will undergo season-ending Achilles' surgery "very quick" after being injured in Week 16, and he faces a six to eight month recovery period. "The rehabilitation time on an Achilles is going to put us close to the start of next season, so he's going to have to get it going and hit it. But I know he will. Corey is a very tough guy. I feel for Corey. We all do. It's a tough injury to have. And especially at this time of the season; this late in the season," head coach Mike Smith said. Peters will be placed on Injured Reserve.
