Brooks was held out of camp early with an undisclosed injury. While the nature of the injury was never revealed, it appears as though it's no longer an issue. The 32-year-old linebacker is expected to start this season, but he'll have to perform well during the preseason to fend off younger linebackers such as Eli Harold, Corey Lemonier and Tank Carradine.
49ers defensive coordinator Jim O'Neil wouldn't disclose the nature of Brooks' injury, but said that he is "hoping that we can get something out of him by the end of spring." It doesn't sound like the injury is serious, and we will update his status as soon as more information is provided by the team.
Ahmad Brooks (personal) returned to the field Thursday, recording five tackles (two solo) and a pair of sacks in the loss to Seattle.
Brooks had missed last week's contest to attend the funeral of his sister. He returned Thursday and the extra rest seemed to have given the veteran linebacker a boost. While this was a monster game, it has to be taken with a grain of salt, as the Seattle offensive line is, well, offensive.
Linebacker Ahmad Brooks (personal) will not travel with the San Francisco 49ers to New York for the Sunday game against the Giants, per CSN Bay Areas.
Brooks is dealing with a death in the family and has been excused from all team activities this week. His agent stated that Brooks expects to rejoin the team next week for their battle with the Ravens.
