Brooks was cut by the Eagles on Wednesday, Dave Zangaro of CSN Philly reports.
This is a tough break for Brooks, who looked like he was on the cusp of carving a meaningful role with the defense this season. Despite his many highs early in camp, Brooks has had a riddled injury history that has limited his availability during his NFL tenure. After cutting Brooks , it's conceivable that the Eagles may make a run at fellow corner Joe Haden, who was released by the Browns on Wednesday.
Brooks left Thursday's preseason opener against the Packers with a hamstring injury, Les Bowen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Brooks, who is coming off a quad tear that ended his 2016 season, was injured on punt coverage and forced to leave the game immediately after. The severity of the injury is yet to be reported, but given that Brooks is already coming off season-ending surgery, the team will likely remain cautious with the cornerback.
Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Monday that Brooks (quadriceps) is "obviously [the team's] nickel defender, nickel corner," Dave Zangaro of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Brooks was on the field for the first day of training Monday, seemingly fully recovered from a ruptured quad tendon that required surgery and cost him the final 10 games of 2016. Prior to suffering the injury, he had established himself as a starter at the position, and assuming his health holds up in camp, it looks like he'll have the inside edge on the nickel role heading into the regular season.
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 elevated into expanded roles within 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.
Brooks (neck) will compete with Norman Carroll for the starting job opposite newly-acquired Leodis McKelvin, NJ.com reports.
Brooks ended the 2015 season on IR after dealing with neck, shoulder and head injuries throughout the year. However, the other leading candidate for the job, Norman Carroll (ankle), finished 2015 on IR as well. While 2015 second-round pick Eric Rowe also figures to vie for the starting role, offseason reviews suggest he isn't a realistic candidate to run with the first unit in 2016. Ultimately, as both Brooks and Carroll enter training camp following an offseason of rehab, the top spot on the depth chart could conceivably come down to the last man standing should either of them suffer a setback in their recoveries prior to Week 1.
Brooks (neck) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Neck and shoulder issues cost Brooks time recently, even forcing him into the concussion protocol, though it's not entirely clear whether his placement on IR is related or due to a new injury. Brooks played primarily on special teams this season, recording 12 total tackles (11 solo).
