War Wounds!!! I share scars with so many people that are more than External but also Internal.. Recovery isn’t easy, it’s 🤬 !! Most Days it’s hard to see the inches took in rehab, Most Days You picking yourself up from falling, Most days you can’t put into words how much strain and will power is being used to get through your sessions. Fear, Frustration, Anxiousness, Discouragement sets in, and it’s so easy to feel sorry for yourself when you’re doing hard things. Uncomfortable Things!!! New Things!! The Same Things – that you can’t do as well yet!!! Never forget who you are or what got you to the point you’re at now, you made it this far despite what you been through and this is no different. Use Wisdom from others who have Journeyed through difficult times and Unexpected Setbacks as your guide, along with your own emotions and small/big victories. “Strength and Growth come only through continuous effort and struggle” I’m open about what my injury and surgery has done to me mentally because it has allowed me to grow in my mind, my spirit, and my body that I knew I had in me but had never been pushed this far. I’m excited about where my Rehab is at this point and looking forward to being even stronger and better than I have ever been before 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾 #StoryAlwaysBetterWithTheScarToProveIt P.S EveryBody that was talking shit last year, ima see you when I see you and I ain’t got shit to say 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬 #🐺
Landry initially sustained his hip injury during last season’s organized team activities (OTAs). He dealt with the pain and discomfort all throughout the season, but the injury finally took a toll on him while playing in the Pro Bowl.
Landry planned to avoid undergoing surgery this offseason but eventually changed his mind. He decided to continue with the procedure that comes with a 6-to-8-month recovery timetable.
The 27-year-old plays a major role in the Browns’ offense. He contributed 83 receptions for 1,174 yards and scored six touchdowns. His injury ultimately limited his production which hurt the Browns’ playoff aspirations. The team ended the season with a 6-10 record and sat in third place in the AFC North. The team was deemed as a dark-horse playoff contender but underachieved despite their loaded roster.
Landry’s expected return to the team by Week 1 will be a huge boost for the Browns. His running mate, Odell Beckham Jr., recently completed his recovery from offseason abdominal surgery and is now in healthy condition.
The team is also ready to turn the page anew under new head coach Kevin Stefanski. A more experienced Baker Mayfield along with healthy offensive targets under a new system will hopefully lift the team to new heights.
The Browns are hungry to bounce back next season to make their first postseason run since 2002.
