The Cleveland Browns will be without wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. for the rest of the 2020 season after Beckham suffered a torn ACL during Sunday’s win against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The news was first reported on Twitter by Josina Anderson and then confirmed by the Browns.

Beckham injured his left knee on Cleveland’s second offensive play of the game while making an awkward tackle attempt following an interception by quarterback Baker Mayfield.

Beckham is the second starter on offensive to go down with a knee injury this season. The Browns lost running back Nick Chubb during the Week 4 win against the Dallas Cowboys. Chubb luckily avoided a major injury, but his injury still landed him on injured reserve and he is not expected back until sometime after the November 8 bye week.

Beckham has 23 receptions for 319 yards and three touchdown receptions, plus a rushing touchdown, on the season.

In Beckham’s absence, wide receivers Rashard Higgins and Donovan Peoples-Jones filled the gap by catching nine passes on nine targets for 166 yards and a touchdown.

The Browns will now find out if they can continue to receive that kind of production as the team will play the rest of the season without their top wide receiver.
