Jan. 20 (UPI) -- Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown underwent off-season surgery on both of his knees, Brown said Tuesday on Instagram.
Brown, who made his first Pro Bowl this season, announced the surgeries through a post-operation Instagram Live stream from his hospital bed.
"They told me I was done for the year in like Week 2," Brown said. "I played all year. I ended up making the Pro Bowl. I didn't know how I was going to do it. I did it."
Brown had 70 catches for 1,075 yards and 11 scores in 14 games in 2020. He played in the team's Week 1 game before he sustained a bone bruise in his right knee. Brown also sustained a left knee injury during training camp.
He missed the team's Week 2 and Week 3 games. Brown also dealt with an ankle injury at the end of the season.
The second-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft had 52 catches for 1,051 yards and eight scores in 16 games as a rookie.
"I am so [mad]," Brown said. "We were supposed to be playing in the playoffs. I had surgery on both of my knees. I am going to bounce back.
"I got through 2020. That was the roughest year of my life."
Brown also said he wants to retire with the Titans.
