Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach Nick Sirianni says WR A.J. Brown was visibly upset on the sideline about an injury that was nagging him, but says he feels he’ll be ready to go this week. When asked if it was about usage, “Every good WR wants the ball. I can assure you he was thrilled with the win”.
After Hurts and Brown failed to connect on a deep ball pass in the fourth quarter, Brown was clearly frustrated. Sirianni checked on him on the sideline.
Brown appeared to get hit in the leg/hip area during the game and played just 51 snaps with only three catches for 22 yard in the 38-7 playoff win over the Giants. That 22-yard performance was his second-lowest output in his impressive season.
Brown had an incredible regular season in his first year with the Eagles. He was named to his second Pro Bowl, catching 88 passes for 1,496 yards and 11 touchdowns. The Eagles will need Brown to be at his best against the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday.
