Brooks was confirmed to have ruptured his Achilles, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Brooks has been witnessed with a significant cast on his right leg. According to Dave Spadaro of the Eagles Insider, Brooks is looking at a six-to-eight month recovery timeline, which means the offensive guard won't be getting back into his football routine until July, at the earliest. However, it wouldn't be a surprise whatsoever if Brooks remains sidelined when the 2019 regular season commences.
Brooks is believed to have suffered a torn Achilles in Sunday's divisional-round loss to the Saints, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
This is a rough way to go out for the Pro Bowler, who was carted off the field during the first quarter of Sunday's game. Given the timing of the injury and its severity, Brooks is far from certain to return to full health in time for the 2019 season opener.
Brooks sustained a leg injury during Sunday's divisional-round game at New Orleans, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.
Brooks was carted off the field in the first quarter with what appears to be a serious injury. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the 29-year-old suffered a severe lower leg injury and is expected to be sidelined indefinitely.
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.
