The Philadelphia Eagles were without guard Brandon Brooks for a good portion of Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
Brooks has battled anxiety throughout his career and explained what happened on social media.
"I'd like to address what happened yesterday," Brooks wrote. "I woke up, and did my typical routine of morning vomiting. It didn't go away like it normally does, but I figured it would calm down once I got to the stadium. It did, but I felt exhausted. The nausea came back, and I tried to battle through it and went out for the first drive. The nausea and vomiting came back until I left the field, and tried everything I could to get back for my teammates but just wasn't able to do it. Make no mistake I'm NOT ashamed or embarrassed by this nor what I go through daily. I've had this under control for a couple of years, and had a setback yesterday. The only thing I'm upset about is that when my team needed me, I wasn't able to be out there with and for them. Lastly, I appreciate the support of my coaches, teammates and fans. It doesn't go unnoticed."
Doug Pederson said the team supports Brooks and wants to help him.
