Wanted to take a minute to thank everyone for the well wishes. Yeah it sucks I tore my Achilles but you know what I look forward to attacking rehab like it’s a game. I look forward to this long journey. God got me and this did nothing but light a fire I needed

Rapoport adds that it’s unlikely Brooks plays against this season.
Brooks suffered the injury during the first quarter of Sunday’s playoff game against the Saints. It was clear that this was a serious injury for Brooks, as he was surrounded by his teammates before being transported off the field on a cart
Brooks, 29, is a former third-round pick of the Texans back in 2012. He played out his rookie contract with the Texans before signing a five-year, $40 million contract that included $21 million guaranteed in 2016.
Brooks stands to make base salaries of $7.5 million over the final two years of the agreement.
In 2018, Brooks appeared in all 16 games for the Eagles and is rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 10 guard out of 79 qualifying players.
