Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry starts the 2020 season on the PUP list
In his second season with the team, Landry finished with 83 receptions for 1,174 yards and six touchdowns. It was the second year in a row he led the team in receptions and yards and he did so while dealing with a nagging hip injury.
The good news for Browns fans is Landry had surgery to fix the problem. The bad news is, he’s still reportedly not ready to go at 100 percent as Ian Rapoport tweeted that No. 80 will start the season out on the physically unable to perform list.
In all honesty, this isn’t unexpected news by any means. Hip surgery is something that always takes players a long time to recover from so it’s not as if Landry is behind schedule.
It’s also not as if the Browns are in a huge rush to get him back considering the season is still more than a month away at this point. Sure, they would like to get him some reps in under Kevin Stefanski’s new system, but there’s no rush at all.
Landry already has a great rapport with quarterback Baker Mayfield so it would be fair to assume the most important thing for him to learn under Stefanski and offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt is the terminology — and that he can learn even if he’s not on the field practicing just yet.
In two seasons as a Cleveland Brown, Landry has 164 receptions for 2,150 yards and 10 touchdowns. He’s been their top threat since joining the team and could be even better once he’s back to 100 percent.
