Browns WR Jarvis Landry expected to be activated off IR; Odell Beckham Jr. has ‘significant’ shoulder injury

The Cleveland Browns will likely welcome back one Pro Bowl wide receiver for Thursday’s Week 7 game against the Denver Broncos, but another one is facing an “uphill battle” to suit up.

Per James Palmer of the NFL Network, Jarvis Landry has a good shot of playing on Thursday, while Odell Beckham Jr.’s chances of seeing the field are a bit murkier.

Landry went on IR on Sept. 21 with an MCL sprain, but was designated to return last week. Beckham injured his shoulder during the Browns’ Week 6 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Cleveland has been hit with the injury bug unlike virtually any other team in the NFL this season. Starting quarterback Baker Mayfield has been playing through a “completely torn” labrum since early in the fall and although he’s played through it thus far, he will pass the baton to Case Keenum for the game against the Broncos.

Additionally, both members of the team’s powerful rushing attack are out for at least another week. Nick Chubb missed the Browns loss against the Cardinals and was ruled out earlier this week due to his lingering calf injury, while Kareem Hunt exited the tilt against Arizona early and was placed on IR this week with a calf ailment as well.

Palmer further reported that the Browns will be without right tackle Jack Conklin against Denver due to a knee injury, but left tackle Jedrick Wills is expected to return after missing the last two weeks with an ankle injury.
