Rams WR Odell Beckham was knocked out in the 2nd quarter of the Super Bowl with a non-contact, left knee injury. That's the same knee in which OBJ tore the ACL in October of 2020. He spent the 2nd half of the Super Bowl on the sidelines in street clothes with a sleeve on the injured knee. We should learn more about the injury soon. Beckham is slated to hit free agency in March, but there was reportedly mutual interest in a return to Los Angeles before this injury.
Rams COO Kevin Demoff said his team would like to re-sign WR Odell Beckham but conceded that Beckham is unlikely to be ready until late in the season after tearing his ACL in the Super Bowl. "I think ultimately, when you're in resource allocation, when you know a player who would probably come in and help you, maybe for the last few weeks, but really in the playoffs, your focus right now has to go on those who are going to be here for training camp, start the season for you," Demoff said. "And then how much can you leave for a player of Odell's caliber? If we didn't have a salary cap we could've signed Odell months ago and would've loved to." Beckham will be just 7 months removed from his ACL tear when the 2022 season kicks off. A typical timeline would have him out for at least the first 2 months of the season. That makes him tough to draft in fantasy, especially in leagues without an IR spot.
WR Odell Beckham could be out until early November as he recovers from the torn ACL he suffered in the Super Bowl, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. OBJ is expected to be on the "later end" of the typical 6-9 month rehab timeline for ACLs, Rapoport adds. That means Beckham figures to miss the first half of the 2022 season. Rams HC Sean McVay said in a Friday radio interview that he'd like to re-sign Beckham, who's set to hit free agency later this month.
Rams WR Odell Beckham announced Tuesday that he underwent successful surgery on his torn left ACL. It's good news that he was able to get the knee repaired just a couple of weeks after the Super Bowl and likely means that there was no damage to other ligaments. Beckham is still up against it to be ready for the start of the 2022 season, but we'll keep a close eye on his rehab.
Rams WR Odell Beckham is "believed" to have a torn ACL, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That was the fear when OBJ went down with the non-contact injury in the 2nd quarter of the Super Bowl. This is the same left knee in which Beckham tore the ACL in October of 2020. He ended up missing the first 2 games of 2021 recovering. This injury occurred nearly 4 months later, putting his availability for the start of the 2022 season in serious doubt. Beckham is also scheduled to hit free agency in March.
Rams beat writer Lindsey Thiry believes it’s “unlikely” the team can retain both Odell Beckham and Von Miller for 2022. L.A. simply lacks the cap space to bring the veterans back. After arriving around mid-season, OBJ racked up 27 catches for 305 yards and 5 scores in 7 starts. He’s tallied 10-123-1 on 12 targets across 2 postseason games. A return to L.A. might seem appealing, but remember that Robert Woods should return from an ACL tear. Beckham will turn 30 in November.
