Brown had played in the final two Eagles regular season games and both playoff games. He had 2 catches for 17 yards in the first round win against the Minnesota Vikings.
Brown's benching clears the way for wideout Greg Lewis to see his first action of the playoffs after sitting out the first two games.
G-Lew is a valuable contributor on kick coverage.
Other notable inactives include TE Matt Schobel and RB Lorenzo Booker.
