Jordyn Brooks tore his ACL Sunday

Linebacker Jordyn Brooks won’t be able to help the Seahawks try to secure a playoff berth next Sunday.

Brooks left their 23-6 win over the Jets with a knee injury and did not return. On Monday, head coach Pete Carroll said on Seattle Sports 710 that Brooks suffered a “legit” ACL injury and multiple reports say that it is a torn ACL for the 2020 first-round pick.

Brooks has a team-high 161 tackles this season while playing 94 percent of the team’s defensive snaps, so his absence will be a major one on the Seattle defense. Brooks also had a sack, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery, and five passes defensed this season.

The timing and nature of the injury will likely impact Brooks’ readiness for the 2023 season and the Seahawks will have a decision to make this offseason about exercising their option on his contract for the 2024 campaign.

  1. Seattle will pay his extension, that’s a no brainer. But they do need to find another productive LB in rounds 1 or 2. After Brooks, Seattle is THIN at LB.

  2. Terrible. That pretty much puts his 2023 season on the shelf.
    I was following Brooks on draft day hoping he would drop to my team,… and he did,… except they drafted a QB. I wasn’t happy.

  3. Not a Seahawks fan, but I hate seeing this for the guy. Beast on defense who was absolutely central to the team’s surprising success this year, gets injured at the very end, and now his real money is at risk with no recourse but to hope he recovers well. Professional football is a ruthless business.

  4. All you guys saying Brooks is good and should be extended are crazy. The guy sucks. Can’t stop the run, can’t cover the pass. Sure he makes a lot of tackles but they are all ten yards down field. Hawks have to see this as a failure – No where close to filling Bobby’s shoes.

    You can argue all you want, but check the tape first. Every game this season he looked foolish….again and again.

    Over rated is an understatement.
