Brooks (Achilles) is no longer wearing a protective walking boot on his right foot, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.
Brooks ruptured his Achilles against the Saints during the playoffs in January, so getting out of the boot was his first real step towards rehab. The 29-year-old still has a long way to go in his recovery and his status for the start of the regular season remains in jeopardy.
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.
