Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry has suffered an MCL sprain that will sideline him for multiple weeks. The team said the sprain is relatively minor and that Landry is week-to-week. General consensus is that this injury will keep Landry out for two to three weeks.
The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported the news via Twitter on Monday.
#Browns coach Kevin Stefanski told reporters that WR Jarvis Landry has an MCL sprain and is week-to-week. It’s relatively minor, so sounds like 2-3 weeks.

This will be Landry’s second year in a row missing a game after playing in all 16 games for the first six consecutive seasons of his career. He missed one game with the Browns last season and failed to start in two contests.
Since arriving in Cleveland in 2018, Landry has eclipsed 800 yards in every season. His best season came in 2019, as he racked up 1,174 yards and six touchdowns. He has made the Pro Bowl five times, from 2015-2019.
The Browns will now have to deal with two nagging injuries, as Odell Beckham, Jr. is still reeling from a season ending injury he suffered last year.
