The Eagles placed Brooks (Achilles) on the active/PUP list Tuesday.
Brooks' placement on the PUP list comes as something of a surprise, given that he looked destined to spend the entire 2020 campaign on IR after suffering a torn Achilles in June. The transaction leaves room for the possibility that Brooks could make a late-season return, perhaps in the event that Philadelphia makes a deep playoff run, though such an outcome should still be considered unlikely considering the severity of his injury. In any case, Jason Peters will draw the start at right guard in place of Brooks to kick off the season.
Brooks announced via his Twitter account that he has suffered a torn Achilles.
While Brooks displayed optimism regarding the news, he will most certainly miss the entire 2020 season as a result of the injury. He also underwent surgery on his shoulder following the regular season, and it is unclear how far along in his recovery process there. The 30-year-old is currently backed up by Jack Driscoll at right guard on the Eagles' depth chart, but it's unclear who will ultimately win the job in his absence.
Brooks will have shoulder surgery Thursday, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Brooks dislocated his shoulder in the regular-season finale and was placed on IR. The 30-year-old offensive guard relayed that he expects to be back by early June, so he could still participate in part of the offseason program. Nevertheless, he should at least be good to go by training camp.
The Eagles placed Brooks (shoulder) on injured reserve Wednesday, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.
Coach Doug Pederson said Monday that Brooks will miss the rest of the year with a dislocated shoulder, so this news isn't surprising. The hope for the Eagles is that Lane Johnson (ankle) can return to the lineup for Sunday's playoff game against Seattle, but if he can't go, Matt Pryor is expected to fill in at right guard in Brooks' absence.

Pederson also confirmed that Brooks will require surgery to address the dislocated shoulder he suffered during Sunday's win over the Giants, according to Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News. Matt Pryor filled in for Brooks in Week 17, and he could be in line to start at right guard during the wild-card round against Seattle.

Brooks will get further tests on his shoulder Monday, which should provide more clarity on his status for the postseason. The Eagles will have a home game in the Wild Card round after clinching the NFC East with Sunday's victory.
Brooks (shoulder) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Giants.
The specifics of the injury remain unclear and he was forced to leave the game in the second quarter. As long as Brooks is sidelined, look for Matt Pryor to take over as the team's starting right guard.
Brooks (illness) was listed as a full participant at Wednesday's practice.
Brooks left Philadelphia's last game with an illness related to anxiety, but his status at Wednesday's practice suggests the guard will be good to go Sunday in Miami.
Coach Doug Pederson relayed the illness Brooks suffered during Sunday's 17-9 loss to the Seahawks was anxiety related, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports. "This is a real-life issue," Pederson said. "This is not a football issue with [Brooks]."
Brooks didn't return to the contest after leaving, and Halapoulivaati Vaitai replaced him at right guard. The Eagles will play Miami on Sunday.
Brooks (illness) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against Seattle.
It's unclear what sort of illness Brooks is dealing with, but he left Sunday's game in the second quarter. As long as Brooks is sidelined, look for Halapoulivaati Vaitai to take over as the team's right guard.
Brooks signed a four-year contract extension with the Eagles on Monday.
Brooks is one of the best guards in the league, and the Eagles now have him under control through 2024. According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Brooks is getting $54.2 million over the duration of the deal, with $30 million guaranteed, making him the league's highest-paid offensive guards.
Brooks (Achilles) is not listed on the Eagles' injury report ahead of their Week 1 game against the Redskins, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Brooks' availability is pretty remarkable considering he ruptured his Achilles in January. Still, Halapoulivaati Vaitai worked with the first team at practice during the week, so the Eagles may be easing the expected starter back into the swing of things. Regardless, it is an impressive recovery for the 30-year-old.
Brooks (Achilles) suited up for practice Thursday, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.
Brooks was held out of OTAs as he recovered from offseason Achilles surgery. The 30-year-old seemingly didn't participate in any team drills Thursday, so Halapoulivaati Vaitai got the call at right guard for the day. It appears that Brooks and the Eagles' training staff are still targeting a Week 1 return.
Brooks (Achilles) is not practicing at OTAs as he recovers from offseason surgery, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
Brooks is recovering from a ruptured Achilles and has been out of a walking boot the past few months. He's been aiming at a return in time for the 2019 regular season, and his absence from OTAs is not surprising.
Brooks (Achilles) is no longer wearing a protective walking boot on his right foot, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.
Brooks ruptured his Achilles during the Eagles' postseason loss to the Saints in January, so getting out of the boot was his first real step forward in the rehab process. The 29-year-old still has a long way to go in his recovery and his availability for the start of the regular season remains in jeopardy.

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 6-to-8-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 right Achilles' tendon 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 lower leg injury. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the 29-year-old is expected to be sidelined indefinitely.
Brooks restructured his contract with the Eagles on Monday, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.
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.
