Brooks suffered a ruptured quadriceps tendon during Sunday's game against the Vikings and will consequently require season-ending surgery, The Philadelphia Inquirer's Les Bowen reports. Brooks went down after attempting to make a tackle during the first quarter Sunday. With his injury requiring surgery, Brooks is expected to land on injured reserve soon, opening a roster spot for the Eagles. After signing with Philadelphia this offseason, Brooks' familiarity with coordinator Jim Schwartz's defensive scheme, as well as fellow cornerback Leodis McKelvin's previous hamstring injury, resulted in Brooks starting five out of six games thus far. While McKelvin's return to health should help make up for Brooks' absence, C.J. Smith or Terrence Brooks could be activated to boost the Eagles' secondary going forward.
Brooks will not return to Sunday's game after suffering a right knee injury. Brooks injured his knee in the first half of Sunday's game and was carted off the field with his right knee wrapped. It's unclear what the specifics of the injury are at this point. Jalen Mills figures to see extra snaps while Brooks is out.
Brooks (calf) is active for Sunday's Week 7 matchup with the Vikings. Brooks started in place of an injured Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) last week and picked up a calf injury of his own, but it doesn't look to be a major issue after he was able to log a full practice Friday. However, with McKelvin active for the contest, Brooks could end up settling back into a bench role.
Brooks (calf) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Brooks, the Eagles' top nickel back, wasn't known to be dealing with injury. However, he practiced in full on Friday and appears likely to suit up.
Brooks will receive a start at cornerback Sunday against the Redskins, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports. Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) is inactive for the contest, affording Brooks the opportunity to see extended snaps in Week 6. He's collected nine tackles and has recovered a fumble through his first four games of the season.
