Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni addressed the media on Monday to discuss a variety of topics from his team’s win over the Giants to the upcoming showdown against the San Francisco 49ers.

Sirianni discussed a variety topics ahead of the team’s NFC Championship Game against the ‘Niners. However, there was one situation stemming from the weekend that he had to touch on.

Late in fourth quarter of Saturday night’s victory, a disgruntled A.J. Brown was spotted on the sideline. Sirianni approached the Eagles’ frustrated star, though Brown appeared to dismiss his coach, looking off into the distance.

Sirianni cleared the air on Monday, revealing that Brown was “going through a little something with his body” late in the win.

Brown finished the game with three catches on six targets for 22 yards. But with such a cushion throughout, the game script didn’t call for a big day in the passing game.

Brown has suffered his fair share of bumps and bruises throughout the season, though he has yet to miss a game since arriving in Philly.

At the end of the day, there isn’t a single player left in playing in the playoffs that isn’t suffering from something. The grind of the NFL’s 17-game regular season eventually catches up with everyone.

Look for Brown to get involved early and often in Sunday’s showdown against the 49ers. The Birds will need to have Brown at his best in order to find their way back in the Super Bowl for the second time in five seasons.
