Beckham is "right on track" in his recovery from October knee surgery, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
EDGE Analysis
The Browns haven't provided any sort of timetable when it comes to Beckham's status other than to say he's operating ahead of schedule. Perhaps more importantly, head coach Kevin Stefanski seemed to buck the notion the team could consider trading the star receiver suggesting the Browns are "in a good spot" to keep Beckham for the 2021 season. This follows numerous reports throughout the past few months detailing various ways in which the team could get out of five-year contract Beckham signed back in 2018 with the Giants. The 28-year-old's guaranteed $12.79 million salary for next season all but assures the only recourse the Browns may have, should they even want to shed the salary, would be to trade Beckham, but an equal form of compensation might be a tough ask given his injury history over the past four years.

Browns GM Andrew Berry said Beckham's recovery from knee surgery is going very well, Andrew Gribble of the Browns' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Beckham tore the ACL in his left knee Oct. 25 and underwent surgery Nov. 10. He'll presumably be held out of practices throughout the offseason program, likely hoping to return at some point during training camp. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network suggested in November that Beckham could be traded, but recent comments from both Berry and the 28-year-old wideout suggest OBJ is part of the Browns' plan for 2021, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Beckham (knee) confirmed Tuesday in a post on his personal Instagram account that he underwent surgery to repair his torn ACL.
EDGE Analysis
Beckham likely won't be able to ramp up his rehab process in earnest until early 2021, but barring any setbacks in his recovery from surgery, he'll likely be ready to go for the start of next season. The 28-year-old will head into 2021 with three seasons remaining on the five-year, $90 million contract extension he inked in August 2018, when he was still a member of the Giants.

Beckham (knee) is scheduled to undergo surgery next week to repair his torn ACL, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.
EDGE Analysis
Assuming no unexpected complications with his surgery, Beckham should be at or close to full health by the time training camp begins in 2021. Beckham's absence for the remainder of the season should free up more targets for fellow wideouts Jarvis Landry and Rashard Higgins over the second half of the Browns' schedule.

The Browns placed Beckham (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday.
EDGE Analysis
Beckham will be removed from the 53-man roster after an MRI confirmed that he suffered a season-ending ACL tear in his left knee during Sunday's 37-34 win over the Bengals. He'll wrap up his second campaign in Cleveland with four touchdown to go with 23 receptions for 319 yards and 72 rushing yards over his seven games. Beckham will turn his focus to rehabbing the knee with the aim of getting back to 100 percent health ahead of the 2021 season.

Beckham (knee) informed Josina Anderson of ESPN on Monday that he has suffered a season-ending ACL tear in his left knee.
EDGE Analysis
Beckham sustained the season-ending injury during Sunday's 37-34 win over the Bengals while attempting to chase down cornerback Darius Phillips after Baker Mayfield threw an interception on his first pass of the game. The Browns will doubtless place the star wideout on injured reserve in the near future as he sets his sights on making a recovery for 2021. With Beckham out, Rashard Higgins and Donovan Peoples-Jones, both of whom impressed during Sunday's divisional win, will be in line for added offensive reps alongside Jarvis Landry. The 27-year-old Beckham's 2020 campaign comes to an end with 23 catches for 319 yards and four touchdowns (three receiving, one rushing) in seven appearances, plus three carries for 72 yards.

There are fears that Beckham suffered a major knee injury Sunday against the Bengals, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
Beckham will undergo an MRI on Monday, but early indications regarding his knee injury aren't looking promising. If the wideout is forced to miss extended time, Rashard Higgins and Donovan Peoples-Jones would be in line for added work alongside Jarvis Landry.

Beckham will undergo an MRI on his left knee Monday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
EDGE Analysis
At a minimum, Beckham's status for the Browns' Week 8 contest against the Raiders will need to be monitored. It's quite possible that he'll need to miss some time, however, and if so, there will be added snaps and targets available for both Rashard Higgins and Donovan Peoples-Jones.

Beckham (knee) won't return to Sunday's game against the Bengals.
EDGE Analysis
If Beckham is forced to miss any time beyond Sunday, Rashard Higgins would be in line to see an expanded role in the Browns' passing offense alongside Jarvis Landry. Beckham didn't record a catch prior to exiting Sunday's contest with the left knee injury.

Beckham (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's game in Cincinnati, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
EDGE Analysis
Baker Mayfield looked Beckham's way on the Browns' first play from scrimmage, but the pass was picked off, and the wide receiver injured himself attempting to make a tackle. Beckham clutched his left knee before heading to the locker room, and his ability to return now is up in the air. As long as Beckham is sidelined, Jarvis Landry will serve as Cleveland's No. 1 wideout, while Rashard Higgins and Donovan Peoples-Jones are the only other wide receivers available Sunday.
