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.
Big day today. Cast off and scooter retired. Back walking ppl!!!!!! Well in a boot lol pic.twitter.com/7nnIfQ2Duf— Brandon Brooks (@bbrooks_79) February 11, 2019
Brooks (presumably) had surgery to repair his Achilles back on January 17, when he tweeted that it was a success.
Update: surgery was a success. Now the road to recovery starts. I look forward to kicking it’s fucking ass 💪🏽. I appreciate all the get well/recovery tweets too. I love and appreciate y’all ✊🏽 pic.twitter.com/Cc4ftgX1ql— Brandon Brooks (@bbrooks_79) January 17, 2019
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.
