Beckham "progressing very well" in rehab | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Browns WR Odell Beckham is on track in his recovery from October's torn ACL, according to HC Kevin Stefanski. "He's progressing very well," Stefanski told reporters Tuesday. "He's trending in the right direction." It's standard offseason rhetoric -- but better than hearing about a setback. Beckham will be nearly 11 months removed from the injury when the 2021 season kicks off, so it's fair to expect him to be at least close to 100%. We'll continue to monitor his progress.

Browns WR Odell Beckham took the field for minicamp practice on Tuesday for the first time since tearing his ACL last October. He was held out of full-team work but participated in individual drills without a brace or wrap on that surgically repaired knee. "He looked good to me," HC Kevin Stefanski said. It's still uncertain if Beckham will be a full-go for the start of training camp -- but he's trending toward being ready come Week 1.

Browns WR Odell Beckham has been diagnosed with a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the 2020 season. A smooth rehab should have him ready for the start of the 2021 campaign. His absence leaves Jarvis Landry as Cleveland's clear top WR the rest of the way. Rashard Higgins and Donovan Peoples-Jones look like the #2 and #3 WRs. Higgins ran a route on 97% of QB Baker Mayfield's drop backs yesterday, posting a 6-110 line on 6 targets. Peoples-Jones posted a 72% route rate and 3-56-1 line on 3 targets. Higgins is worth grabbing in fantasy leagues of 12+ teams. Peoples-Jones is a deeper-league stash.

Browns WR Odell Beckham is "feared to have suffered a major knee injury," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Beckham is scheduled for an MRI on the left knee on Monday morning to get an official diagnosis. We should know his fate by tomorrow afternoon. Beckham's absence would seemingly leave Rashard Higgins and Donovan Peoples-Jones as Cleveland's #2 and #3 WRs behind Jarvis Landry.

Browns WR Odell Beckham appeared to suffer a knee injury trying to make a tackle after a Baker Mayfield INT in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Bengals. He limped off to the locker room with trainers. Stay tuned for an update.

Update: The Browns are calling Beckham questionable to return.

Update: Beckham has been ruled out for the rest of the game. That leaves Jarvis Landry and Rashard Higgins as Cleveland's top 2 WRs.

Browns WR Odell Beckham (illness) is active for today’s game against the Steelers. He should be available for his usual role, despite missing Thursday and Friday’s practices.
