Are you sitting down?

Because this is a fuster-cluck of untold proportions.

Eagles starting offensive guard Brandon Brooks claims now that the reason he has missed two of the team’s last three games is:

High anxiety!

Mel Brooks should sue.

“I found out recently that I have an anxiety condition,” Brooks said yesterday. “What I mean by anxiety condition … not nervousness or fear of the game, what it is is I have an obsession with the game. It’s an unhealthy obsession right now. I’m working with team doctors to get everything straightened out and get the help I need.”

Brooks said that he woke up around 4 A.M. the morning of the team’s game against the Redskins and was vomiting uncontrollably. After arriving at Lincoln Financial Field, Brooks was so weak that he was unable to stand despite receiving treatment from team doctors.

“The only time you guys notice is game day,” Brooks said. “But it’s happened Friday, Monday, Tuesday. It can happen any time.”

Brooks also missed the team’s game in Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers, and twice missed games last season when he was a member of the Houston Texans.
