UPDATE: Doesn’t look like Brooks will be returning in the Eagles’ season finale.

Philadelphia Eagles starting right guard Brandon Brooks had to be carted off the field after suffering a shoulder injury on an extra-point attempt. (Seriously, how does that happen?!)
Injury Update: G Brandon Brooks (shoulder) is questionable to return.— Philadelphia Eagles (@Eagles) December 29, 2019
Brooks worked his ass off in the offseason to come back from an Achilles injury suffered during last season’s playoff game against the Saints. He pushed his rehab hard, and was able to return to the field for Week 1 of the 2019 season, and got right back to Pro-Bowl caliber play.
Just another blow to an Eagles’ offense that already looks completely different than at the beginning of the season.
With Brooks out, the Eagles are having 2018 sixth-round Matt Pryor fill in at right guard. Pryor is lining up next to Halapoulivaati Vaitai, who is filling in for Lane Johnson at right tackle. Not ideal.
