NEW ORLEANS -- Philadelphia Eagles Pro Bowl right guard Brandon Brooks was ruled out of Sunday's divisional-round game against the New Orleans Saints in the first quarter after suffering a right leg injury, which he later revealed on Twitter was a torn Achilles tendon.
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— Brandon Brooks (@bbrooks_79) January 14, 2019
Brooks went down on the Eagles' second possession of the game following a Nick Foles throwaway. He tried to walk off under his own power but did not make it to the sideline.
The entire Eagles team came out to console Brooks as he was placed on a cart before being driven into the tunnel.
Brooks has made the Pro Bowl in each of the past two seasons with the Eagles. He was replaced in the lineup by Stefen Wisniewski.
The Eagles lost 20-14.
