Brooks has quickly established himself as one of the top interior linemen across the league for his on-field performance. However, it now appears he's helping the Eagles outside of the trenches as well. By restructuring his current deal, Brooks has allowed the Eagles to convert some of $8.75 million base salary into bonuses, which subsequently will free up some cap space for Philadelphia.
Brooks (ankle) was left off of Wednesday's injury report and is expected to return Sunday against the Redskins.
Brooks wasn't expected to miss any games, but his official return to full participation means he'll be positioned at starting right guard Sunday.
The Eagles had labeled Brooks as week-to-week with the ankle injury over the weekend, but his involvement in practice Monday portends well for his availability by the time the regular season arrives. However, Brooks will likely still be limited in drills for the time being and could miss additional preseason action after sitting out last week's exhibition opener.
Brooks (ankle) is considered "week-to-week," Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Brooks is dealing with an ankle strain but is expected to be back in time for the regular season.
