Brian Kelly says Greg Brooks Jr. had another surgery to ‘help and assist’ recovery

LSU has dedicated the 2023 season to defensive back Greg Brooks Jr., who underwent surgery to remove a brain tumor earlier this season and was diagnosed with medulloblastoma, a rare form of brain cancer.

Updates on Brooks’ progress have been understandably few and far between, but coach Brian Kelly provided some news on Thursday. Brooks underwent another procedure to “help and assist” in his recovery, though it’s unclear what that was.

Kelly also added that Brooks is currently in rehab.

“He’s still in a battle, but he’s making some progress,” Kelly said. “We all want this to move to a point where he’s back in the building, and it’s just going to be a longer process.”
