If there were any questions about how Brandon Brooks would attack his rehab from his second Achilles tear in two years, they've been answered pretty quickly.
Just two days after tearing his Achilles, Brooks is already doing jiu jitsu with a boot on his left foot.
Of course he is.
On Wednesday, Brooks shared that video from his jiu jitsu instructor and said, "The work don't stop. You improvise boot and all."
When Brooks returned from tearing his right Achilles in the playoff game against the Saints, his rehab took just eight months and was powered by a positive mindset. He never missed a start.
Now, after his third serious injury in a relatively short timespan, it doesn't look like Brooks is any less optimistic. When Brooks confirmed his Achilles tear on Monday night, he was already in that positive mind space.
So I guess now that news is out yes I tore my other Achilles but when life gives you lemons you make lemonade. I'll be back and better than ever. Appreciate the love ✊🏽— Brandon Brooks (@bbrooks_79) June 15, 2020
Brooks, 30, tore his left Achilles on Monday morning while working out at the NovaCare Complex. He will miss the entire 2020 season.
Last November, I wrote a story about Brooks' positive mindset and how it helped him in his first Achilles recovery. His offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland was absolutely convinced it helped him to recover faster.
"What I'm gonna do, man?" Brooks said last November. "Be sad about this s-?"
Nope, apparently not the second time either. There's work to be done.
