Eagles wide receiver A.J. Brown is OUT against the Bucs Monday night

Big news for the Monday night Wild Card game between the Tampa Bay Bucs and Philadelphia Eagles – Eagles wide receiver A.J. Brown was ruled out with a knee injury suffered last week against the New York Giants. Brown had nine receptions for 131 yards in their week three meeting and will now be unavailable to a team already reeling.

For the Bucs, all players are good to go despite a few being listed as questionable. K.J. Britt (calf), Josh Hayes (quad/knee), and Baker Mayfield (ankle/ribs) are those listed with the “questionable” designation but Todd Bowles told the media everyone is “good to go” Monday night.

Also missing for the Eagles is rookie safety Sydney Brown, who suffered a torn ACL last week but fellow safety Reed Blankenship is listed as questionable with a groin injury.

As for the rest of the Eagles, Jalen Hurts (finger) and DeVonte Smtih (ankle) are both cleared to play which is huge for the Eagles’ offense.

You can see the full injury report below;

This is the sixth meeting between the two teams all time in the playoffs with the Bucs holding a 3-2 lead. They won in 1979 before losing two straight. Then, of course, the Bucs shut down The Vet in the 2002 NFC Championship then beating the Jalen Hurts led Eagles in the 2021 Wild Card round 31-15. Of the six postseason meetings between the Bucs and Eagles, this is the fourth that will be played in the Wild Card round.

The Bucs and Eagles square off at Raymond James Stadium Monday night at 8:00 p.m. with the game broadcast on ESPN, ABC, and ESPN+. Joe Buck and Tory Aikman will be on the call.
