Odell Beckham Jr.’s career with the Cleveland Browns took another bad turn on Sunday. Beckham injured his knee early in the Week 7 game against the Cincinnati Bengals and is looking towards a lengthy break that will include him missing the remainder of 2020.
Beckham was injured while trying to tackle Bengals’ corner Darius Phillips, who intercepted the pass intended for Brown’s wideout. During the tackle, Beckham landed awkwardly and immediately grabbed his knee.
The 27-year-old Pro Bowler was carted off the field and didn’t return to the game.
Beckham underwent an MRI on Monday, with the Browns later announcing that he suffered a torn ACL in his left knee.
“Obviously it’s a big loss,” said Browns coach Kevin Stefanski after the news was confirmed. “He’s a huge part of what we do. So now we’ll just have to huddle up, and find some different ways and find some different people and put them in that role.”
Odell Beckham Jr isn’t a stranger to injuries, considering they cost him a total of 27 games since he entered the league in 2014. That total will now significantly increase as Beckham won’t get back on the field anytime soon.
Beckham has had a lukewarm season so far, catching 23 passes for 319 yards and three touchdowns.
