Brandon Brooks and Sheldon Rankins were carted off Sunday.
Eagles guard Brandon Brooks and Saints defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins were carted off during Sunday’s NFC Divisional Round matchup Sunday.
Both were injured within minutes of each other in the first quarter Sunday.
Rankins injured his leg first and was carted off with the Eagles up 7–0 at the time. According to Fox Sports’ Pam Oliver, he headed to the locker room and was getting x-rays. NFL Network’s Mike Garagolo reported Rankins suffered what’s believed to be a torn Achilles’ tendon.
Then, the cart came back out for Brooks who went out with a leg injury. The Eagles announced Brooks is questionable to return to the game. As Brooks was carted off, the Eagles came off the Bench to support him.
Rankins has 26 solo tackles, eight sacks and one forced fumble this season.
