Following the Week 6 win, Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel provided a small update on Brooks’ status moving forward.
“Chris is more week-to-week, I would say. There’s some swelling that has to go down with Chris before we can totally get the timeline or the rough estimation,” McDaniel said of Brooks earlier in the week.
The rookie from BYU played in each of Miami’s first six games.
During his time on the field, Brooks recorded 15 carries for 94 yards.
