The Eagles are trying to avoid an early injury issue on the offensive line.
According to several reporters at Philadelphia’s Thursday practice, right guard Brandon Brooks exited practice early with a hamstring issue. An Eagles official said Brooks left for a precautionary evaluation.
Brooks is entering his 10th pro season and fifth year with the Eagles. He began his career with the Texans but was a Pro Bowl selection for three consecutive years from 2017-2019. He missed the 2020 season with a torn Achilles.
While the Eagles are describing Brooks’ exit from practice as precautionary for now, the situation is certainly worth monitoring as the team progresses through training camp.
