Browns’ Jarvis Landry activated off PUP list
The Cleveland Browns, with Jarvis Landry, should have one of the most exciting offenses in the NFL in 2020. They had massive expectations in 2019 as well, but disappointed for most of the season.
However, now all the pieces have had a full year to jell a little bit more. And a lot of people have already jumped back on the bandwagon.
One of the most exciting pieces in that Cleveland offense is Jarvis Landry. The wide receiver has caught over 80 passes in each of his six seasons in the NFL so far.
That includes racking up 83 receptions for 1,174 yards and six touchdowns in his second year with the Browns in 2019.
However, he had hip surgery this offseason, and was placed on the PUP (Physically Unable to Perform) list.
There is some fantastic and promising news on that front though. According to Field Yates of ESPN on Twitter, Landry has progressed well. So well, in fact, that he passed his physical and was activated off the PUP list on Saturday.
This is notable: Browns WR Jarvis Landry has passed his physical and is activated off of PUP, per source. Great sign in his recovery from offseason hip surgery.

Landry has been criticized for his yards per reception heavily in the past. It is something that has stuck with him since his rookie year with the Miami Dolphins when he had just 758 yards on 84 receptions (9.0 yards per reception).
However, he has done a lot to shed that imagine in his time with the Browns. In 2018, Landry averaged 12 yards per reception, the second highest of his career. Then in 2019 he set a new career-high in the category, with a fantastic 14.1 yards per reception.
There are a lot of exciting pieces in the Cleveland offense. Odell Beckham Jr. is a superstar wide receiver, Nick Chubb is a star workhorse back and Kareem Hunt is an absolute weapon at the position.
