  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Misses practice

    Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said that Brooks sat out Friday's practice while dealing with a tight hamstring, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports. It's likely that Seattle will take every precaution when it comes to Brooks' health this offseason after he finished the 2021 campaign with the NFL's second-most tackles (184). In the starting inside linebacker's absence, backups Joel Iyiegbuniwe and Tanner Muse should see increased reps this preseason.

  • Seahawks' Jordyn Brooks: Piles up 184 tackles

    Brooks posted 184 tackles (109 solo), five pass breakups, a sack and a fumble recovery across 17 games during the 2021 season. In his second NFL season, Brooks finished second in the league in tackles, beating Bobby Wagner's career best for tackles in the process. Brooks looks like he'll be a staple of Seattle's defense moving forward, and he could take on signal-caller duties if Wagner doesn't return in 2022. We should expect Brooks -- who is 24 years old -- to be a high-end IDP option next season.
