Seahawks Star Linebacker Undergoes Surgery

Seattle Seahawks star linebacker Jordyn Brooks announced via Instagram that he underwent surgery last Thursday to address the torn ACL in his right knee. 

Brooks suffered the injury during the Week 17 win over the New York Jets.

Brooks said that the surgery was successful, though the typical nine-month rehab process for this injury makes it unlikely that he'll be ready in time for the 2023 season opener.

The twenty-five-year-old finished his 2022 season with 161 total tackles, one sack, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and five passes defended over 16 games. He finished sixth among all tacklers this season, despite playing one less game.

Brooks is a former first-round pick by the Seahawks in the 2020 NFL Draft.
