The Cleveland Browns placed Jarvis Landry on the IR Tuesday, which means he will miss at least three weeks with a knee injury
For the first time in his eight seasons in the NFL, Jarvis Landry is going to miss some time due to an injury. Landry, a proverbial iron man for the Cleveland Browns, was placed on the injured reserve Tuesday with an MCL sprain.
The placement on IR means Landry will miss at least three weeks before being eligible to return to the field.
Landry injured his knee making a first down reception during the Browns Week 2 win over Houston and limped off the field afterward. It was apparent the injury wasn’t just a tweak when he headed to the locker room.
An MRI on Monday provided good news since the injury was a sprain rather than any ligament damage. Still, the Browns top receiver will be out for the next three games, at least.
As previously stated, this marks the first time he has missed a game due to injury, but Landry was sidelined for one contest in 2020 when he was deemed a close contact to a staff member with COVID-19. Landry and pretty much every receiver Cleveland had was forced to watch as the offense struggled in a loss to the New York Jets.
If there is any silver lining for the Browns, it has to be the encouragement they received on Tuesday from Odell Beckham, Jr.
Landry’s former LSU teammate has been sidelined since Week 7 of the 2020 season following a torn ACL but released a video that hinted he will be back this weekend as Cleveland hosts the Chicago Bears.
If that is the case, it couldn’t have come at a better time since the offense will need someone to carry the torch while Landry is sidelined.
