Odell Beckham Jr. suffers ACL injury

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is expected to miss the rest of the season after suffering an ACL injury in his left knee.

Beckham suffered the injury while attempting to chase down an interception return in the first quarter of the Browns' 37-34 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. 

The Browns confirmed the injury on Monday.

While his prodigious talent is not in doubt, Beckham has a long injury history.

The 27-year-old has missed a combined 27 games in the first six seasons of his career and his latest injury could see him miss the remaining eight games of the ongoing NFL season.

Beckham has three years remaining on the five-year Browns contract he signed in August of 2018.

The injury will frustrate Browns' fans as they are putting together an impressive season under first-year head coach Kevin Stefanski. Their victory over the Bengals on Sunday saw them improve to 5-2 on the season.

“Odell, the energy he brings to practice. The energy he brings to games. No one else is going to be able to bring that type of juice. But it’s our job to find the guys that can go compete and we’ll put them in spots where they can succeed and think we’ll be able to do that," Stefanski said.

"It’s not easy. I don’t want to have to do it and I’m very disappointed for Odell but that’s the nature of this beast. Injuries are part of this thing and that doesn’t mean any of us have to like it, but we do have to deal with it.”

Cleveland's road to the playoffs is made even more difficult by the fact they are in the same division as the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Baltimore Ravens, two of the favourites to win it all.

The Browns will be hoping that they can put the disappointment of Beckham's injury behind them when they face the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday.
