Seven months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn ACL, Seahawks linebacker Jordyn Brooks has passed his physical, allowing him to come off the physically unable to perform list.
Brooks, who recorded 345 tackles over the past two seasons, including a franchise record 184 in 2021, tore his ACL in Seattle's Week 17 win over the Jets last January, then had surgery later that month.
By passing his physical and coming off the PUP list, Brooks can now return to practice, though it's worth noting that the Seahawks have gradually worked players back into action after they passed their physicals earlier in camp, including tight end Noah Fant and cornerback Riq Woolen. Even if Brooks doesn't do a lot in practice right away, however, coming off the PUP list allows him to take part in the team's walkthroughs before practice.
With Brooks passing his physical, the Seahawks now have three players still on the PUP list: safety Jamal Adams, nose tackle Bryan Mone and nose tackle Austin Faoliu.
Seahawks get a practice in Sunday morning at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center in Renton, Wash. on Aug. 13, 2023.
