#TSRSports: Odell Beckham Jr. Out For The The rest Of The NFL Season With A Torn ACL
Roommate We send our prayers to Odell Beckham Jr. after suffering a cruciate ligament rupture in his left knee after Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
According to ESPN, the injury was found at the end of the season on Monday after an MRI scan that confirmed the tear in his knee.
Speaking of OBJ’s injury, Cleveland Brown coach Kevin Stefanski said, “Obviously it’s a big loss. It’s a big part of what we do. Now all we have to do is crouch and find different ways and find different people and put them in that role. “
He went on to say, “You will never replace a player of Odell’s caliber with a player. It will take several people. This is the challenge we have and I think our guys will be up to the challenge. “
OBJ was injured after attempting to chase Bengali defender Darius Phillips after Baker Mayfield’s passport was dropped and intercepted on him. In the end, however, he fell on Phillips and Cleveland’s full-back Andy Janovich, who was also trying to take up the tackle.
After the team won, Mayfield expressed guilt for OBJ’s injury and said, “I will probably grapple with this for a long time. He’s the guy who fights for this team and he got injured in the process. … it sucks.”
He also revealed that OBJ told him to “be great” in the second half, which helped keep him motivated. Eventually the Browns beat the Bengals 37-34.
Unfortunately, this is not OBJ’s first injury. He suffered a foot injury in 2017 while still playing for the New York Giants. He also suffered a hip and groin injury at training camp last year.
We send good wishes to Odell and a speedy recovery!
