Rodney McLeod Out, Brandon Brooks ‘Ready to Go’ for Sunday at Falcons
The Eagles will try to get their offensive line back on track when one of their most key contributors makes his return on Sunday.
Right guard Brandon Brooks, who missed all of last season and showed up on the injury report with a knee issue, will play in Sunday's Week 1 game in Atlanta.
“He’ll be up and ready to go,” said Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni on Friday.
Ruled out Friday for Sunday’s game is safety Rodney McLeod, who suffered his second torn ACL in the last three seasons in Week 14 of last season. he was listed as a limited participant all week, but head coach Nick Sirianni said he will not play.
"McLeod will be out," Sirianni stated.
Also out for the game on Sunday is rookie offensive lineman Landon Dickerson.
"Dickerson will be out," added Sirianni. "I've really been pleased with Landon. I'm getting to see Rodney even more since he's working on the scout team a little bit for us."
The best news for Philadelphia though is that they will get their right guard back and he will see his first action since Week 17 of the 2019 season.
