Peters was hurt while blocking Osi Umenyiora on a third-and-5. Peters stood his ground, but his right foot slipped from under him on a slick field drenched by a pelting rain.
Peters lay on the ground for several minutes before limping off on his own.
The Bills said the player's return was questionable as Peters watched the next series from the sideline.
Peters was selected to his first Pro Bowl this week, becoming Buffalo's first offensive lineman chosen since Ruben Brown in 2003, and first offensive tackle since Howard Ballard in 1993.
It was an exceptional honor for Peters, a tight end when he signed with the Bills as an undrafted free agent in 2004. He was converted into an offensive lineman the following year, and took over at left tackle last season.
