The Cleveland Browns began their 2021 NFL training camp and after the first couple of days, there are already some positives to take away
Cleveland Browns football is finally back.
While we still have a lot of time before the regular season kicks off, we are at least able to see the Browns working together in Berea in preparation for the 2021 NFL Season. That’s because their training camp kicked off the 27th of July and there’s already a lot to take in.
Here, we take a quick peek at three positives from the first couple of practices.
3. Players are healthy, refreshed
The Browns had several players who were injured last season and so far, things have looked good in that department. Greedy Williams gave everyone a scare when he went to the trainer’s room, but apparently, that was a heat-related incident and he’s expected to be fine.
Odell Beckham, Jr. is another player who missed time in 2020 after tearing his ACL in Week 7 and he got great news when he passed a physical upon arriving at camp. While he’s being watched closely, many of us took for granted the fact that his friend Jarvis Landry was also dealing with injury issues.
Since Landry pushes through pain constantly, we forget that he takes a beating as well — and even had hip surgery ahead of 2020. Now in 2021, he feels like himself again.
Landry took some time to talk about this, saying that it was difficult coming back from surgery last season but now, he feels much better now than he did around this same time in 2020.
"“I feel great,” Landry said. “Obviously, I’m still getting better. We’ve still got another month and a half before we play our first game. I’ve still got some work to do, but I feel way better than I felt this time last year.” — Landry said via Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal"
Health will be a key factor in 2021 for Cleveland but so far, things are looking up for them.
