Eagles G Brandon Brooks Out For Season With Torn Achilles


Eagles G Brandon Brooks announced via his Twitter account that he’s out for the 2020 season with a torn Achilles. 

Derrick Gunn of NBC Philadelphia reported earlier that Brooks tore his left Achilles tendon while working out at the NovaCare Complex on Monday. 

The Eagles could look to bolster their offensive line by bringing LT Jason Peters back at some point. If they wanted to add a guard, the best available options include: Larry Warford, Josh Kline, Mike Person, Ronald Leary and Kyle Long.

Brooks, 30, 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 with the Eagles that included $21 million guaranteed in 2016.

Brooks was set to make base salaries of $7.5 million over the final two years of the agreement when he signed a four-year extension with the Eagles last year worth $56.2 million in new money and $30 million guaranteed. 

In 2019, Brooks started all 16 games for the Eagles at right guard before being placed on injured reserve in January with a separated shoulder.
