WATCH: AJ Brown nearly gets taken out by vehicle while participating in the Eagles Autism Challenge
The last thing any of us want is for Eagles star wideout AJ Brown to get injured, especially during an off-the-field incident.
Luckily, we narrowly dodged a bullet in that department.
On Saturday, the Eagles organization held their annual Eagles Autism Challenge, a charitable 5K run/walk/cycling event where 100 percent of the proceeds go towards autism research and care. Since they began the event in 2018, the team has raised over $16 million from 93,952 donations across 54 separate countries.
Aside from raising money for the autism cause, the event allows players to connect with the community. Several players participate in the event every year.
Entering his second season with the Eagles, AJ Brown decided to give it a go in this year’s festivities. He also decided to broadcast his cycling abilities via Instagram Live. While he was casually riding along his fellow participants, he nearly got taken out by a vehicle at an intersection.
The moment AJ Brown almost got run over
In classic Philly fashion, the guy riding a bike right next to Brown yelled out, “God damn, pay attention, man!” Even though the driver clearly ran a stop sign.
