Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry needs MRI for MCL injury
The Cleveland Browns bounced back from a Week 1 loss against the Kansas City Chiefs and were able to get on the board with a win over the Houston Texans. Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was not active once again, and now the Browns have received bad news regarding Jarvis Landry.
Landry left the game early on Sunday and is scheduled for an MRI after suffering an MCL injury, according to James Palmer of NFL Network.

That certainly doesn’t bode well for the Browns, who could easily be down BOTH of their starting wide receivers in Week 3. That could be a major blow, and Kevin Stefanski and Baker Mayfield might have to rely on Rashard Higgins and Donovan Peoples-Jones if the starters are out.
Beckham has been trying to return after a season-ending injury in 2020 but has yet to suit up in the 2021 campaign, and both LSU products are dealing with injuries now.
The Browns will take on the Chicago Bears, and if both guys are out, expect another run-heavy game plan in Week 3. In some good news, Baker Mayfield left the game briefly, but ultimately came back and finished it out, so there is a lot to look at with the Browns injury report.
