Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr’s two-word response to potential Week 3 return
OBJ spoke to the media on Thursday for the first time this season and had a two-word response to if he will suit up in Week 3:
Pretty self-explanatory. The Browns wideout almost played in Week 1 against the Chiefs but was then ruled out before kick-off. Last weekend vs. Houston, he also ended up sidelined again. Beckham Jr tore his ACL in Week 7 of last season and unfortunately missed the Browns’ impressive run in the playoffs where they knocked out the Pittsburgh Steelers.
OBJ also spoke on the hard work he’s put in to get back to 100% and be better than ever. Via Jake Trotter of ESPN:
“I’ve worked extremely hard to not only get back but improve and try to be better than I ever have been,” Beckham said. “So I’m definitely looking forward to it. It’s been a long time. It’s been a long time in that cave, putting yourself back together. I had a great team around me for the entire process, great support system. And it’s going to be special. Like I said, it’s been a long time.”
The Browns could certainly use Beckham Jr right now after Jarvis Landry suffered an MCL injury which is set to keep him out for a few weeks. It’s going to be interesting to see if OBJ can be the same player of the past.
