Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Playing out rookie contract in 2023
The Seahawks didn't pick up the fifth-year option on Brooks' (knee) rookie contract by Monday's deadline, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
The 27th overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, Brooks has been hyper productive the last two seasons, piling up 345 tackles in 33 games during that span. His 2022 campaign was abbreviated, though, after he suffered a torn ACL in Week 17. While he remains in recovery mode, coach Pete Carroll expressed optimism about Brooks' progress on April 19, telling John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site that the inside linebacker may be available by training camp. Whenever he gets back on the field, Brooks will be operating under an expiring contract.... See More ... See Less
Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Hopeful for training camp
Seahawks head coach Pete Carrol said Wednesday that Brooks (knee) is making progress in his recovery from the ACL tear he suffered in the team's Week 17 win over the Jets on Jan. 1, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.
Brooks underwent surgery on his knee a few weeks later and is apparently bouncing back well nearly three months removed from the procedure. Before injuring his knee, Brooks was in the midst of another productive campaign, as he racked up an impressive 161 tackles to go with five pass breakups, one sack and one forced fumble in 16 games....

Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Progressing well after surgery
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday that Brooks (knee) is "doing really well" in his recovery but remains without a specific timeline to return to the field, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.
Brooks suffered a torn ACL in Week 17, and based off Carroll's comments, the Seahawks are optimistic that the linebacker's recovery is on schedule and that he'll be able to bounce back. At this stage, however, the 25-year-old isn't guaranteed to be ready for the start of the 2023 season. In spite of missing the Seahawks' regular-season finale and postseason loss to the 49ers, Brooks remained one of the most productive linebackers in IDP leagues, finishing with 161 tackles, one sack, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery over 16 appearances....

Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Undergoes surgery Thursday
Brooks announced via Instagram that he underwent surgery Thursday to address the torn ACL in his right knee, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.
Brooks sustained this injury during the Week 17 win over the Jets, causing him to finish the 2022 campaign with 161 tackles over 16 games. This total still ranked sixth among all tacklers this regular season despite having his season cut one game short. Brooks did add that Thursday's operation was successful, per Henderson, though the typical nine-month rehab process for this injury makes it rather unlikely he'll be ready to suit up for the 2023 season opener....

Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Surgery upcoming
Head coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Brooks will have surgery later this week to address the torn ACL he suffered in Week 17 against the Jets, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Although Brooks' recovery process is now underway, he still remains without a specific timetable for a return to football-related activities. The 25-year-old will aim to be available for the start of next season, after he led Seattle with 161 stops across 16 games played during the 2022-23 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Heads to IR
Seattle placed Brooks (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Brooks' move to season-ending IR was inevitable after he was confirmed to have suffered a torn ACL in his knee during this past Sunday's win over the Jets. Head coach Pete Carroll said Brooks will undergo surgery to address the injury once the swelling in his knee subsides. The 25-year-old linebacker was named a Pro Bowl alternate this season after racking up a team-high 161 tackles to go with five pass breakups, one sack and one forced fumble in 16 games. Given the timing of his ACL surgery, Brooks could be in danger of opening training camp on the PUP list and may have to miss some game action to begin the 2023 season.... See More ... See Less
Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Done for season
Brooks suffered a torn ACL in Sunday's win over the Jets, which will end his season early, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Brooks could not put any weight on his leg upon suffering the injury, and after a trip to the team's medical tent, he was carted off the field to the locker room. Unfortunately, after further testing and a postgame MRI, it was revealed the star linebacker suffered a torn ACL. This is certainly bad news for the Seahawks ahead of their Week 18 game with the Rams and beyond, if they're able to grab the last wild-card spot in the NFC. The injury could also affect his status to open next season, considering the timing of the injury.... See More ... See Less
Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Will not return
Brooks (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Jets.
Brooks suffered what appeared to be a significant injury that led to immediate attention from a doctor and led to him being unable to put any weight on his leg. He did enter the team's medical tent right immediately and then he was ultimately carted off the field and to the locker room. This news is certainly a significant blow to the Seahawks and their defense as they push for a playoff spot in the last two weeks of the season. Tanner Muse has stepped into replace him at inside linebacker.... See More ... See Less
Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Getting tests done on knee
Coach Pete Carroll said Brooks is undergoing tests on the knee injury that forced him from Sunday's win against the Jets, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Brooks entered Week 17 second in the NFL with 157 tackles, and he tacked on four more before exiting in the second quarter. Carroll noted the Seahawks "got our fingers crossed," so even though the inside linebacker wasn't able to put any weight on his leg at the time he suffered the injury, he may have avoided a worst-case scenario. The aforementioned tests likely will determine if Brooks misses the regular-season finale versus the Rams.... See More ... See Less
Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Tallies eight stops in loss
Brooks recorded eight tackles (five solo) and one pass defensed in Saturday's 24-10 loss to the Chiefs.
Brooks once again played every defensive snap for Seattle this past weekend, and he now ranks No. 2 in the NFL with 157 stops on the year. The 25-year-old should continue operating in his usual every-down role when Seattle hosts the Jets on New Year's Day.... See More ... See Less
Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Set play Saturday
Brooks (neck) does not carry a game status ahead of Saturday's tilt against the Chiefs, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Brooks was evaluated for a neck injury during the Seahawks' Week 16 loss to the 49ers, and he was limited during practice Wednesday after opening Week 16 prep with a full session Tuesday. Nevertheless, it appears he was able to work past this issue in time to suit up against Kansas City's prolific offense. Brooks has recorded 149 tackles, one sack and four passes defended over 14 games this season, so he could be in line for another massively productive outing Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Limited Wednesday
Brooks (neck) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Brooks injured his neck during Seattle's Week 15 loss to San Francisco. He seemed to have put the injury behind him after he was listed as a full participant on Tuesday's practice estimate, but Wednesday's limited listing indicates he's not in the clear for Saturday's game in Kansas City just yet. Brooks has been one of the top IDP performers thus far in 2022, tallying 149 tackles to go with a sack, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery over his first 14 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Full go to begin Week 16
Brooks (neck) was listed as a full participant on the Seahawks' injury report Tuesday.
Brooks was evaluated for a neck injury during Week 15's loss to San Francisco on Thursday Night Football. The 25-year-old was then deemed questionable to return, though it's unclear if he was able to return to this contest. Nevertheless, it doesn't appear the issue will limit Brooks heading into Saturday's game against Kansas City, and the third-year linebacker should continue to serve as Seattle's top tackler moving forward....

Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Questionable to return
Brooks (neck) has been downgraded to questionable to return to Thursday's game against the 49ers, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.
Brooks was initially deemed probable to return during the second half after being removed to be evaluated for a neck injury. While the results of this evaluation are still unclear, the third-year linebacker was seen watching the game from the sideline without his helmet on, per Dugar. With less than five minutes remaining, Brooks will have little time left to get back on the field before the end of this contest.... See More ... See Less
Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Exits Thursday night
Brooks exited to be evaluated for a neck injury during Thursday's game against San Francisco, though he is considered probable to return, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Brooks logged eight tackles before he was removed with a potential neck injury. Brooks was the league's second-leading tackler coming into Week 15, with 141 stops over 13 games this season. With Brooks out for the time being, Nick Bellore will likely step up into a bigger role alongside inside linebacker Cody Barton.... See More ... See Less
Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Logs double-digit tackles again
Brooks posted 10 tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 30-24 defeat versus the Panthers.
Brooks tallied at least 10 tackles for the ninth time in 13 games this season. However, he actually finished as the team's third-leading tackler behind Cody Barton and Ryan Neal (knee). Brooks still far and away leads the Seahawks in tackles this season (141), and he now ranks just behind Jaguars linebacker Foye Oluokun (142) for the league's most tackles through Week 14. Brooks will serve a vital role in trying to slow down the 49ers' offense during Thursday Night Football in Week 15.... See More ... See Less
