Odell Beckham, Jr. received some great news as he passed his physical at Cleveland Browns camp and won’t be headed to the PUP list
After suffering a torn ACL in Week 7, Odell Beckham, Jr. spent the entire offseason rehabbing in an effort to get back to 100 percent health.
And just this past week, the Cleveland Browns wideout said that he was going to take his time and make sure he was fully healthy before hitting the field — which is a smart approach.
While we don’t know for sure that he will suit up for Week 1, OBJ did get some great news on Tuesday when he passed a physical as he reported to training camp in Berea.
In seven games last season, OBJ finished with 319 yards receiving with three touchdowns but added another 72 yards rushing and a touchdown — including his 50-yarder in Week 4 that sealed their win over the Dallas Cowboys.
While his overall numbers didn’t look like typical OBJ numbers, he did show that he still had that game-breaking speed. He also continued to command attention from opposing defenses.
Beckham even alluded to this at his youth camp, saying he believed he could have made a play to help the team knock off the Kansas City Chiefs.
There have been some who would be willing to move on from Beckham, claiming the team was better without him. Statistics can be used to back up that argument but teams don’t usually improve by moving on from elite talent — and Beckham is still an elite athlete.
And he’s also one step closer to returning to the field for the Browns after this latest news.
