Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown is a warrior.
A second-round pick out of Ole Miss in 2019, Brown has proven that draft pundits and NFL evaluators were too low on him. He’s now gone back-to-back seasons with over 1,000 yards receiving and has 19 touchdowns in 30 career games.
This past season, Brown set career-highs in receptions (70), yardage (1,075) and receiving touchdowns (11), despite missing two games. Apparently, the Pro Bowler should have missed a lot more.
Brown went on Instagram Live on Tuesday while in the hospital. For the most part, his video was entertaining and fun, but there was one major takeaway. He revealed that he just had double knee surgery after playing through pain all season.
“They told me I was done for the year in, like, Week 2,” Brown said. “I played all year. And I made the Pro Bowl. Didn’t know how I was going to do it. I did it.”
AJ Brown (@1kalwaysopen_) went on Instagram live earlier and said he had surgery on both knees. As well as he was told he was “done for the year in like Week 2.” He mentioned he wants to be a Titan for life and how Mike Vrabel will probably cuss him out for this. 😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/ewMjGgQ6SU

Once again, Brown is a warrior. His impact in Nashville cannot be overstated, and he obviously wants to spend his career there. Based on what we’ve seen so far, Tennessee needs to ensure that happens.
Overall, it is a hilarious video that is definitely worth watching.
