Rams wide receiver Odell Beckam, Jr. suffered a torn ACL in Super Bowl LVI. He went down in the second quarter with a non-contact injury, and did not return for the remainder of the game.
The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported the news on Monday via Twitter.
#Rams WR Odell Beckham Jr is believed to have torn his ACL in last night’s Super Bowl win, source said. That means a long road of recovery for the free agent, who has a challenge to be ready for 2022. Beckham had 2 catches for 52 yards, 1 TD and 1 moonwalk before the injury.

Beckham is slated to be a free agent in 2022. The ACL tear will make it difficult for him to return to the field, regardless of which team signs him. He was grabbed by the Rams after a very public divorce with the Cleveland Browns.
The receiver had two catches for 52 yards and a touchdown before exiting the game. Los Angeles would go on to win despite an injury to their second-best receiver. His running mate, Cooper Kupp won the Super Bowl MVP in the franchise’s first Super Bowl victory since returning to Los Angeles.
