After two weeks of opting to forego media questioning, Brown spoke to reporters on Wednesday, and among other things, said he apologized to his teammates for them having to answer for him. Hurts said that Brown was taking leadership and ownership over the narrative that’s been out there.

The QB explained that his friendship with Brown has allowed them to have more conversations and to be intentional with what they’re doing, and chase their goals, especially during this recent rough stretch.

Hurts wouldn’t say that Brown needed to apologize, but said it was on the WR’s heart and the QB will always support whatever he, or any other player, feels.

Quarterbacks and head coaches tend to the get the brunt of the criticism during tough times, and Hurts said that Sirianni is keeping his head down and working, and is trying to do his best.

Brown mentioned Sirianni’s loyalty when addressing reports he’s frustrated with the coach, and Hurts added another layer to that.

Hurts later acknowledged that he has a set one-on-one meeting with Sirianni every week, but when asked what day that meeting is held, the QB had a big smile and said, “Next question.”
