Browns WR Jarvis Landry’s timetable to return from MCL injury, revealed
Cleveland Browns star wide receiver Jarvis Landry left the team’s win over the Houston Texans early on Sunday with an apparent knee injury. Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski discussed the severity of it on Monday and gave a timetable on Landry’s return. Via ESPN’s Jake Trotter:
WR Jarvis Landry expected to be “week-to-week” with an MCL sprain, coach Kevin Stefanski says #Browns

Landry will likely miss two to three games, which is definitely a bit of a blow to the Browns’ offense. But, at least it’s not an MCL tear. He played just two snaps against Houston before exiting and had one catch for nine yards. Cleveland put up 31 points on the Texans, with Baker Mayfield throwing for 213 yards on the day.
Receiving-wise, the Browns are already without Odell Beckham Jr, but there is the possibility he will be ready for Week 3 against the Bears. That would definitely be a solid addition with Landry missing time. Austin Hooper led the receiving corps with five catches for 40 yards on Sunday and he will need to keep stepping up.
Hopefully, the Browns can get by without Jarvis Landry for the time being. But in the long run, they will definitely need him around if they’re going to make some noise again when it comes to the playoffs. If OBJ can make an immediate impact as well, it will be huge for this team.
