Eagles OL Brandon Brooks (pec) headed to IR

Philadelphia Eagles three-time Pro Bowl guard Brandon Brooks has a strained pectoral muscle and is headed for short-term injured reserve.

The team feared the muscle was torn, which would have ended his season. He’ll have to miss at least three weeks on IR.

Head coach Nick Sirianni confirmed the injury on Monday along with a status report on Brandon Graham.

The Pro Bowl defensive end is done for the season after rupturing his left Achilles during Sunday’s loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

“We’re gonna miss BG. He’s the heart and soul of this team,” Sirianni said.

Brooks, 32, who has been a mainstay on an offensive line riddled with injuries the past two seasons, was injured on the first play of the second quarter and didn’t return.

Graham suffered his injury late in the first half.

Brooks had started every game for the Eagles the past three seasons, earning Pro Bowl honors each season. He has started 108 of 114 games he’s played in since being taken in the third round of the 2012 draft by the Houston Texans.

Graham, 33, is coming off a Pro Bowl season after recording eight sacks last season and 16.5 the past two. He has played in 161 games (104 starts), all for the Eagles, since being taken No. 13 overall in the 2010 draft.

Linebacker Davion Taylor is day-to-day with a calf injury.

The Eagles (1-1) play the Dallas Cowboys (1-1) on Monday night in Week 3.
