Says he was wrong to oppose players kneeling.

Berman: Brandon Brooks will miss the season after tearing his left Achilles tendon Monday, a devastating injury for Brooks and the Eagles considering that he is one of the NFL's best offensive linemen and his presence is critical for the offense. The 30-year-old suffered the injury while working out at the NovaCare Complex, the Eagles training facility, on Monday and, as Gunn reports, "knew the severity of the injury right away and was devastated".

The perennial Pro Bowl guard was ready to enter his ninth National Football League season and his fifth as an Eagle before learning the devastating news. Unfortunately for Brooks, this isn't the first time he's gone down this road as he also tore his right Achilles during the 2018 playoffs in the Divisional Round against the New Orleans Saints.

Brooks came to the Eagles as a free agent from the Houston Texans in 2016. He was able to rehab from the injury in eight months, and he was able to return to the field for the 2019 season opener.

Brooks' injury may force the Eagles to go even further in their attempt to resign tackle Jason Peters, who has yet to ink a new deal with the team. He has made the Pro Bowl each of the past three seasons. He is under contract through the 2024 season.
