Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver A.J. Brown said he has no issue with quarterback Jalen Hurts.

Brown contends the two merely were involved in a "discussion" during last week's home opener against the Minnesota Vikings when cameras caught them in an animated sideline interaction that boiled just enough to prompt head coach Nick Sirianni to step between them.

"The sideline discussion, I want you all to know that's what it was, a discussion," Brown said, via the Delaware News Journal. "It's a game that we both love and I want everybody to understand that sometimes emotions run high and that's kind of what happened. That doesn't mean it's the end of the world. That doesn't mean I'm beefing with Jalen.

"And no, it was not about targets. I'm sure everybody thought that because he threw me the ball three times in a row afterwards. But no, I was not over there discussing targets. It was about something that happened earlier and we were having a discussion about it."

Brown, 26, recorded four catches for 29 yards in the 34-28 victory over Minnesota. His 11 receptions are tied for the team lead with DeVonta Smith, however Brown has yet to find the end zone this season.

Brown, who set a franchise record with 1,496 receiving yards last season, returns to action with the Eagles (2-0) on Monday night against the host Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-0).
