Philadelphia Eagles right guard Brandon Brooks is expected to miss the upcoming 2020 NFL season after tearing his left Achilles tendon.

Brooks revealed the news via Twitter on Monday after reportedly hurting his Achilles while working out at Philadelphia's training complex.

A Pro Bowl selection in each of the past three seasons, Brooks has been rehabbing from a dislocated shoulder he sustained against the New York Giants in week 17 of last season, forcing him to miss the Eagles' wild-card loss to the Seattle Seahawks in January.

"So I guess now that the news is out yes I tore my other Achilles but when life makes you lemons you make lemonade," the 30-year-old wrote.

"I'll be back and better than ever. Appreciate the love." 

The seven-year veteran previously tore his right Achilles tendon during the Eagles' loss to the New Orleans Saints in the 2018 playoffs.

Brooks, though, returned in time for the 2019 campaign and started all 16 regular-season games before missing Philadelphia's opening-round playoff loss to the Seahawks due to his shoulder injury.

Including the postseason, Brooks has still started 67 of a possible 70 games since signing a five-year contract with the Eagles prior to the 2016 campaign. 

Philadelphia may now have to replace two key starters on the offensive line from last season's team, as long-time left tackle Jason Peters remains an unsigned free agent. 

The Eagles did select Andre Dillard in the first round of the 2019 draft as an intended replacement for the 38-year-old Peters and took a pair of Auburn offensive linemen – Jack Driscoll (fourth round) and Prince Tega Wanogho (sixth round) in this year's draft.  

The Philadelphia Eagles will be without Brandon Brooks for their playoff campaign after the guard suffered a dislocated shoulder against the New York Giants.

The Eagles clinched the NFC East and ensured their place in the playoffs with a 34-17 win over the Giants on Sunday.

However, it came at a cost, with Pro Bowler Brooks dislocating his shoulder in the second quarter, while running back Miles Sanders also succumbed to an ankle issue and Daeshon Hall suffered a serious injury late on.

On Monday, Pederson confirmed Brooks will not be available against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday or in any subsequent postseason matches.

"Brooks had the dislocated right shoulder during the game. He's suffered a little more damage in there and he's going to miss the remainder of the season," Pederson told a media conference.

"Brandon's a big loss. He's an anchor in the offensive line, he's big and physical and he's a professional. He comes to work every day ready to go.

"The other report I should put out there is Daeshon Hall, last play of the game, ACL. So he's done for the year. It's unfortunate."

Brooks was replaced at right guard by lineman Matt Pryor, and with Lane Johnson returning to fitness, Pederson is hoping to still have plenty of options heading into Sunday's game.

"There's some flexibility there. Lane will work himself back into practice this week but we have some options there. We'll see how the week plays out," Pederson added.

"To Matt Pryor's credit, he stepped in and did well in the game, and if he's the guy, we expect him to pick up where Brandon left off. But [Brooks is] definitely a big loss.

"We've got a great opportunity in front of us. Seattle aren't going to feel sorry for us. We've got to continue to work, practice, prepare and get ready for Sunday."

The Seahawks have their own injury concerns ahead of the playoffs, with the NFL Network reporting linebacker Mychal Kendricks is believed to have torn his anterior cruciate ligament in Week 17.

Philadelphia Eagles guard Brandon Brooks has revealed that a bout of anxiety prevented him from returning to the field in a defeat against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

Brooks departed in a 17-9 loss at Lincoln Financial Field and was unable to return.

The Super Bowl champion and two-time Pro Bowler explained his absence on Monday after the Eagles stated that he was unable continue due to "illness".

"I'd like to address what happened yesterday. I woke up and did my typical routine of morning vomiting. It didn't go like it normally does, but I figured it would calm down once I got to the stadium. It did, but I felt exhausted," he tweeted.

"The nausea came back, and I tried to battle through it and went out for the first drive. The nausea and vomiting came back until I left the field and I tried everything I could to get back for my team-mates but just wasn't able to do it.

"Make no mistake, I'm NOT ashamed or embarrassed by this nor what I go through daily. I've had this under control for a couple of years and had a setback yesterday.

"The only thing I'm upset about is that when my team needed me, I wasn't able to be out there with and for them. Lastly, I appreciate the support of my coaches, team-mates and fans. It doesn't go unnoticed."

Head coach Doug Pederson said the Eagles will do all they can to support Brooks.

"I'll just say this, I'm not going to get into a lot of detail with that. Because, listen, this is a real-life issue. This is not a football issue with Brandon," he told SportsRadio WIP.

"This is a real-life issue that he has come out and publicly acknowledged and kind of shared his story a few years back. It's something that he's dealing with each and every day of his life. You never really know what triggers it. 

"We're here to support him, we love him. It is unfortunate that it happened, but it's something that he deals with every single day. We're just going to continue to support him."

Brandon Brooks has been handed a new contract by the Philadelphia Eagles, reportedly making him the highest-paid guard in the NFL.

Brooks' deal with the Eagles was set to expire in 2020, but on Monday the team confirmed the 30-year-old had signed a new deal through to 2024.

The guard, who is a Super Bowl champion and two-time Pro Bowler - has been one of the most consistent performers in his position across the league in 2019, having overcome an Achilles tendon injury sustained in a playoff defeat to the New Orleans Saints in January.

"Since the day he walked into the building, he's been a consummate Eagle," Philadelphia's general manager Howie Roseman said.

"You just see that with everything he does on and off the field. Certainly, you're talking about a player who is the best at his position in the National Football League, a guy who gets hurt in the Divisional Round playoff game and who works his butt off to get back for this season's opener.

"He means so much to our football team and our organisation and I'm extremely proud to have him with us going forward."

NFL Media have reported the deal is worth $54.2million, with $30m guaranteed.
