Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. has a torn ACL in his left knee according to the Browns organization.
OBJ’s season is now over, after Monday’s MRI confirmed the star receivers devastating injury.
Beckham, 27, was injured on just the Browns second offensive play after a Baker Mayfield interception.
OBJ ran down the defender, and unfortunately got tied up awkwardly resulting in the injury.
Baker Mayfield said at halftime Beckham told him to “go be great” in the second half.
Mayfield did just that as he became just the second quarterback in NFL history to throw three go ahead touchdown passes in a fourth quarter in Cleveland’s 37-34 win.
Baker also broke a Cleveland Browns franchise record with 21-consecutive completions, one being the game winning touchdown that put the Browns at 5-2.
Beckham’s tenure with the Browns had been as injury riddled as can be.
The star receiver suffered a hip and groin injury during training camp last season. The injury hampered him throughout the season, although he still totaled more than 1,000 yards receiving.
The injury forced Beckham to get surgery in the offseason, and he started his 2020 campaign strong up until the injury.
Beckham was looking like his old reliant self this season as he had his third highest yard-per-catch in his career at 13.9.
OBJ racked up 23 receptions for 319 yards along with 3 touchdowns. Beckham also has 78 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown.
Beckham will now begin the comeback progress to continue his $18M per season contract thats up in 2024.
