Brooks (neck) will compete with Norman Carroll for the starting job opposite newly-acquired Leodis McKelvin, NJ.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brooks ended the 2015 campaign on IR after dealing with neck, shoulder and head injuries during the season. However, his main competition, Norman Carroll, is also coming off an injury-ravaged season as well. Fellow CB Eric Rowe also figures to be in on the competition, but offseason reviews suggest he isn't a realistic candidate to start. Conceivably, as both Brooks and Carroll enter training camp after an offseason of rehab, this competition could come down to the last man standing should either player suffer a setback.

Brooks (neck) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Neck and shoulder issues cost Brooks time recently, even forcing him into the concussion protocol, though it's not entirely clear whether his placement on IR is related or due to a new injury. Brooks played primarily on special teams this season, recording 12 total tackles (11 solo).

Brooks is expected to start at cornerback Sunday at New England with Stephon Gilmore ruled out due to a concussion, BuffaloBills.com reports.

Brooks saw extended action last week when Gilmore was injured and logged eight tackles. While that's a tough number to replicate for a corner, Bill Belichick isn't exactly known for taking it easy on inexperienced defensive backs, so we wouldn't be surprised to see Brooks tally a handful more since he'll be on the field for most of the defensive side of the game.

Brooks, who was carted off the field during Week 5 with a neck injury, was able to return to practice Wednesday, according to ESPN's Mike Rodak.

The news has certainly gotten better and better for Brooks following a scary incident where he was flipped over on a play and landed on his head. He's simply a depth guy for the Bills, but it's great news that it looks like he'll be able to continue his career following something that could have been a lot worse.

Brooks, who suffered a scary neck injury during Sunday's win in Detroit and was taken to a local hospital, has been discharged and is able to return to Buffalo.

Things brightened up a bit when Brooks - a depth cornerback for the Bills - was able to wave to the crowd as he was carted away, but it was a frightening injury that had both sidelines quite concerned. We'll likely know more about Brooks' recovery plan later in the week.

Bills CB Ron Brooks needs foot surgery and is out indefinitely.

With Stephon Gilmore (wrist surgery) also out for at least the next month, the Bills are awfully thin at cornerback. Brooks worked as Buffalo's dime back in Week 1. The Bills are currently not planning to place Brooks on I.R.

Bills CB Ron Brooks was spotted on crutches Monday.

Brooks played just 10 snaps in Week 1 as UDFA Nickell Robey came on as a nickel corner. It's a concern for a Bills' secondary that was already without both Jairus Byrd and Stephon Gilmore.
