Eagles' Brandon Brooks: Set to go under knife
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Brandon Brooks: Heads to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Brandon Brooks: Done for the season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Pederson said Monday that Brooks (shoulder) will miss the rest of the 2019 season, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

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.

Eagles' Brandon Brooks: Dealing with dislocated shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brooks dislocated his shoulder in Sunday's win over the Giants, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

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.

Eagles' Brandon Brooks: Leaves Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Brandon Brooks: Full participant Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Brandon Brooks: Details of illness revealed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Brandon Brooks: Falls ill Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Brandon Brooks: Inks massive extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Brandon Brooks: Cleared for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Brandon Brooks: Practicing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Brandon Brooks: Held out of OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Brandon Brooks: Out of walking boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Brandon Brooks: Ruptured Achilles confirmed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.

Eagles' Brandon Brooks: Dealing with ruptured Achilles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Brandon Brooks: Exits Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Brandon Brooks: Restructures deal, frees up cap space
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Brandon Brooks: Not on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Brandon Brooks: Returns to practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brooks (ankle) rejoined the Eagles for practice Monday, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

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.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brooks is dealing with an ankle strain but is expected to be back in time for the regular season.
