Odell Beckham’s road to recovery begins next week.
Cleveland Browns general manager Andrew Berry told reporters on Wednesday Beckham is scheduled to have surgery early next week to repair the ACL tear in his left knee.
Beckham was torn apart by the ACL in the first quarter of Brown’s Week 7 win over the Bengals. Once it was known the extent of his injury, it was determined that Beckham’s season would be over.
In seven games, Beckham finished the year with 23 tackles within 319 yards and three touches. The wide range also has three shots in 72 yards and another score.
Beckham’s recovery will be closely watched by teams that are probably interested in the Pro Bowler three times. NFL Network Ian Rapoport reported on Sunday that there is a “very real possibility” Beckham may have played his last game in Cleveland.
