Shortly after A.J. Brown deleted the Philadelphia Eagles from his social media accounts, the star wide receiver took a step further by not attending Eagles practice on Friday afternoon.
Brown, who suffered a knee injury during the team’s Week 18 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, might be receiving treatment, but fans speculate on other reasons given his recent social media actions.
Yet, some fans, fueled by conspiracy theories, suspect there might be more to the situation. The fact that Brown skipped practice shortly after erasing the team’s photos from his Instagram and deactivating his Twitter account raises suspicions among the fanbase.
Questions linger about whether Brown is upset with the Eagles for playing him in a seemingly inconsequential game or if his absence is solely due to physical injury. The situation raises uncertainties ahead of Philadelphia’s matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night.
In his debut season with the Eagles, A.J. Brown established a new single-season franchise record, amassing an impressive 1,496 receiving yards.
