In the Philadelphia Eagles' loss to the New Orleans Saints in the divisional round of the playoffs, Pro Bowl right guard Brandon Brooks suffered a torn Achilles. 

Realistically, that's a nine-month injury, which would put Brooks' potential return for the start of the 2019 season in question. On Monday, Brooks tweeted that he is out of his cast, and no longer using the Roll-A-Bout.

Brooks (presumably) had surgery to repair his Achilles back on January 17, when he tweeted that it was a success.

So, that begs the question, is getting rid of your cast and scooter 25 days after surgery normal, or does that progress exceed expectations? 

I asked a doctor. He said, "As expected." So there you go.
