LSU safety Greg Brooks has undergone successful emergency surgery to remove a brain tumor. The procedure was a success, but further tests are needed to determine the full extent of the situation.
In a statement released by Brooks’ family on Wednesday morning, they expressed gratitude for the successful surgery and asked for continued support and prayers:
“Greg continues to fight, and we await further clarity on the extent of that battle. His incredible strength of character gives us confidence, but we also know that he needs our support now more than ever. Please keep Greg and our family in your prayers.”
As a result of the surgery, Brooks was unable to play in the Tigers’ recent victory over Mississippi State on Saturday. Head coach Brian Kelly announced on Monday that Brooks’ absence was due to a “medical emergency,” without providing specific details. Kelly also mentioned that there is no timetable for Brooks’ return to the field.
Before joining LSU, Brooks began his collegiate career at Arkansas in 2019 before transferring. In the 2022 season, he played in 14 games for the Tigers, recording 66 tackles and two interceptions.
We wish Greg Brooks a swift recovery and hope to see him back on the field soon.
