WR - PHI
The Philadelphia Eagles did not list A.J. Brown (hip) on the team's injury report on Wednesday.
Brown had been dealing with a hip injury that seemed to limit him in the divisional round of the playoffs to an extent. Heading into the conference championship, Brown is off the injury report and appears ready to play. Brown averaged 88 yards a game in the air during the regular season and will be important against the 49ers' defense.
A.J. Brown caught four of his nine targets for 97 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Saints.
Brown's touchdown came on a 78-yard catch and run, and he now has 84 receptions for 1,401 yards and 11 touchdowns through 16 games. Brown and the Eagles will face a Giants team in Week 18 that may be resting many of its starters.
A.J. Brown (knee) practiced in full on Friday and has been removed from the Eagles' final injury report. He will play against the Saints in Week 17.
When Brown takes the field on Sunday, he'll likely be catching passes from Gardner Minshew after Jalen Hurts (shoulder) was listed as doubtful. Last week, Brown and Minshew connected for six completions and 103 yards on eight targets. The 25-year-old continues to rank as a low-end WR1 despite the quarterback downgrade.
A.J. Brown was limited in practice on Wednesday.
There shouldn't be too much of concern over Brown's status to play this week. He should be ready to take on his usual role against the Saints on Sunday.
A.J. Brown caught six of his eight targets for 103 yards in Saturday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
This was Brown's second 100-yard performance in a row and his third in his last four games, and he topped the century mark this week despite Gardner Minshew starting at QB in place of the injured Jalen Hurts. Through 15 games, Brown has caught 80 of his 126 targets for 1,304 yards and 10 touchdowns.
