Report: A.J. Brown avoided ACL tear after exiting Eagles matchup vs. Giants with knee injury

A.J. Brown was forced to exit the Eagles season finale with a knee injury, but Ian Rapoport reports that his ACL is intact, and that’s good news for a team struggling to generate any offense without their dynamic duo.

After a nine-yard catch and run, Brown was tackled hard by the Giants Nick McCloud, as the defensive back forced a fumble and forced the Eagles star down to the turf on his knee.

Brown was eventually helped off and forced to exit the matchup with one catch for five yards.

Brown earned another All-Pro nod, and entered the game just 49 yards shy of breaking his single-season team record (1,496 in 2022).

In Week 16 vs. Arizona, Brown officially broke Mike Quick’s 16-game Eagles record (1,409 in 1983) after doing so in 17 games in 2022.
