UPDATE: Jordyn Brooks has returned to the game and appears to be playing without limitation.

Seattle Seahawks linebacker Jordyn Brooks was tailing Arizona Cardinals tight end Trey McBride deep down the left sideline when he appeared to go down awkwardly. Steve Raible noted in the radio broadcast that it looked like Brooks may have aggravated an injury to his ankle. He needed some help getting off the field and headed immediately to the blue tent. According to Michael-Shawn Dugar, he is now officially questionable to return.

As Brady Henderson of ESPN notes below, this is the same injury that has limited his availability as of late.
Jordyn Brooks ran with TE Trey McBride and broke up a deep throw, but he was then slow to get up. He's limping off the field now.— Brady Henderson (@BradyHenderson) January 7, 2024
Brooks missed last week and most of the Tennessee game after re-injuring his ankle, which he initially hurt in the Nov. 30 Dallas game.
Devin Bush is filling in at the moment. We are still awaiting further news on the extent or severity of the injury. Losing Brooks could be significant in a matchup against a Cardinals offense that has generated more than 200 yards rushing in two of its last three games, and in a must-win game for the Seahawks postseason hopes.
