Crisis Averted: Eagles WR AJ Brown is a full-go for Week 1 after getting stung by a bee
Nobody likes getting stung by a bee, especially if you’re allergic to them like Eagles wideout AJ Brown.
During Friday’s practice session, Brown was seen on the sideline breathing heavily with his arms above his head. He wasn’t his normal, cheerful self and it garnered attention from the beat reporters in attendance.
In a since deleted Tweet, Brown explained that he was not grieving over the loss of Queen Elizabeth, like Les Bowen suggested in the Tweet above. Rather, he was trying to get his breathing under control after suffering a bee sting shortly before practice began.
Brown went on to explain that he’s allergic to bees and that he was just nervous about how his body would react. He actually had to take an EpiPen shot before practice to counteract the sting’s affects.
The Pro Bowl wideout is a man amongst boys whenever he’s on the field, so there was no way a little bee sting was going to hold Brown out for too long.
Brown is a full-go for the Eagles opener
Could you imagine if the Eagles top acquisition from the offseason was forced to miss the first game of the year because of an allergic reaction to a bee sting? It wouldn’t be the first time a Philly athlete missed time for an inexplicable reason after joining the team over the offseason. I’m looking at you, Andrew Bynum.
Nevertheless, it looks like the Eagles dodged a bullet here. You never know how an allergic reaction will affect you until it happens. Glad to see Brown got the best of that pesky bee.
