The Browns will be without Jarvis Landry for a little while. The wide receiver has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL and will be week-to-week, according to head coach Kevin Stefanski (Twitter link via NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport).
Landry went down with a knee injury during the Browns’ opening drive on Sunday and did not return. The Browns still went on to win 31-21, thanks in part to Tyrod Taylor‘s early exit. Still, credit goes to the Browns’ offense, which managed to find pay dirt in each quarter.
The Browns will be without Landry when they face the Bears on Sunday. They may or may not also be without Odell Beckham Jr. — he’s yet to play this year as he recovers from knee surgery. Rashard Higgins, who replaced Landry in the lineup, figures to pick up more of Baker Mayfield‘s targets. Preseason standout Davion Davis — now eligible to return from suspension — could also be called upon to fill in.
There’s no word yet on whether the Browns will park Landry on short-term injured reserve to open up a roster spot. But, given the week-to-week nature of the injury, it might make sense for them to leave him on the 53-man roster.
