Browns’ Kevin Stefanski talks injury rehab for Odell Beckham Jr, Jarvis Landry
With the entire sports world in flux due to the continuing COVID-19 crisis, Cleveland Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski is pleased with the progress of two of his star wide receivers’ offseason surgeries.
Both Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry had surgeries earlier this year. And Stefanski is happy to report no issues in their rehabilitation process.
According to a story on USA Today’s BrownsWire:
“Both are exactly where they need to be in terms of rehab progression,” Stefanski said. “They were in the building quite a bit in January and February. They’re doing everything they need to do and they’re right where they need to be from a rehab standpoint.”
Stefanski was named the new Browns head coach on January 13, 2020 after the team underperformed under previous head coach Freddie Kitchens. Kitchens had previously taken over from the inept Hue Jackson and his replacement Gregg Williams.
That’s a lot of coaching turnover. But the Browns clearly believe they got their man in Stefanski, as they signed him to a five-year deal during the offseason.
Landry and Beckham served as an impressive one-two punch in the Browns receiving corps in 2019. They both finished with over 1000 yards, 70 receptions and 14.0 yards per reception.
Though only Landry made it to the Pro Bowl, he was joined by running back Nick Chubb. Chubb finished with 1494 rushing yards and 8 rushing touchdowns – both of which were in the top 10.
