Browns GM Andrew Berry said Beckham's recovery from knee surgery is going very well, Andrew Gribble of the Browns' official site reports. Beckham tore the ACL in his left knee Oct. 25 and underwent surgery Nov. 10. He'll presumably be held out of practices throughout the offseason program, likely hoping to return at some point during training camp. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network suggested in November that Beckham could be traded, but recent comments from both Berry and the 28-year-old wideout suggest OBJ is part of the Browns' plan for 2021, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Beckham (knee) confirmed Tuesday in a post on his personal Instagram account that he underwent surgery to repair his torn ACL. Beckham likely won't be able to ramp up his rehab process in earnest until early 2021, but barring any setbacks in his recovery from surgery, he'll likely be ready to go for the start of next season. The 28-year-old will head into 2021 with three seasons remaining on the five-year, $90 million contract extension he inked in August 2018, when he was still a member of the Giants.
Beckham (knee) is scheduled to undergo surgery next week to repair his torn ACL, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports. Assuming no unexpected complications with his surgery, Beckham should be at or close to full health by the time training camp begins in 2021. Beckham's absence for the remainder of the season should free up more targets for fellow wideouts Jarvis Landry and Rashard Higgins over the second half of the Browns' schedule.
The Browns placed Beckham (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday. Beckham will be removed from the 53-man roster after an MRI confirmed that he suffered a season-ending ACL tear in his left knee during Sunday's 37-34 win over the Bengals. He'll wrap up his second campaign in Cleveland with four touchdown to go with 23 receptions for 319 yards and 72 rushing yards over his seven games. Beckham will turn his focus to rehabbing the knee with the aim of getting back to 100 percent health ahead of the 2021 season.
Beckham (knee) informed Josina Anderson of ESPN on Monday that he has suffered a season-ending ACL tear in his left knee. Beckham sustained the season-ending injury during Sunday's 37-34 win over the Bengals while attempting to chase down cornerback Darius Phillips after Baker Mayfield threw an interception on his first pass of the game. The Browns will doubtless place the star wideout on injured reserve in the near future as he sets his sights on making a recovery for 2021. With Beckham out, Rashard Higgins and Donovan Peoples-Jones, both of whom impressed during Sunday's divisional win, will be in line for added offensive reps alongside Jarvis Landry. The 27-year-old Beckham's 2020 campaign comes to an end with 23 catches for 319 yards and four touchdowns (three receiving, one rushing) in seven appearances, plus three carries for 72 yards.
