Brooks tore his left Achilles tendon while working out at the NovaCare Complex back in June.
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.
