The Eagles should expect to be without Brandon Brooks for the next eight weeks. At least, that’s the timeline quoted by teammate and friend Lane Johnson (Twitter link via NFL.com’s Mike Garafolo).

The Birds parked Brooks on the injured reserve list earlier this week following his pectoral injury. Early on, there was fear of it being a season-ending for Brooks, one of the league’s most talented offensive guards. However, it wasn’ t a complete pec tear, leaving the possibility of a return in the second half.

Brooks, of course, has been here before. The 32-year-old lost all of 2020 to a torn Achilles, leaving the Eagles to scramble for solutions up front. He also had Achilles and shoulder tears in the past. When healthy, he’s a standout. Brooks made the Pro Bowl every year from 2017-2019, showing why he’s worth his current four-year, $54.2M deal.

The Eagles turned to rookie Landon Dickerson in Brooks’ stead, but they could pivot to the more experienced Nate Herbig. They also have a newcomer, Jack Anderson, to provide depth. Still, Johnson knows that no one else can be a one-for-one replacement for Brooks.

“Brooks has been one of the best right guards in the league for a long time,” Johnson said (via the Philadelphia Inquirer). “Tremendous loss for us. Having him out there, might’ve been the difference between us winning and losing.”

In fact, he is so confident they are going to come back to Earth in Week 2 that he is willing to stake his appearance to it. © Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Fletcher Cox During Thursday’s edition of “Get Up!” on ESPN, Scott taunted Eagles fans for rushing out to buy Hurts jerseys. He predicted Philly is going to have a much tougher time against the “elite” San Francisco 49ers this weekend. Scott’s colleague Damien Woody strongly disagreed, which led to a debate between the two.
