A.J. Brown acknowledged his "emotions were high" during the Philadelphia Eagles' victory against the Minnesota Vikings last week, but said his animated sideline interaction with Jalen Hurts was not indicative of an issue between the two players.
"The little sideline discussion, I want you all to know that's what it was -- it was a discussion," Brown said. "This is a game that we both love, and I want everybody to understand that sometimes emotions run high. That doesn't mean it's the end of the world. That doesn't mean I'm beefing with Jalen."
Television cameras showed an exchange between Brown and Hurts at the start of the fourth quarter. Nick Sirianni interjected and had a word with Brown as Hurts walked away.
Hurts proceeded to target Brown three times on the following series, including on a 25-yard touchdown pass that was nullified by a penalty.
Multiple teammates suggested afterward that the root of Brown's frustration was wanting to be more involved in the offense. Brown, though, said the conversation wasn't about targets but instead about something that happened earlier in the game.
"I know everybody took that out of context, but it's not a big deal, me and him are still on the same page, we're still growing, we're still trying to become great and get wins most importantly," Brown said.
