Browns Get Good News on Latest Jarvis Landry Injury Update
The battle for the AFC North is a tight one and the Cleveland Browns are in the thick of it with a 3-2 record. Fortunately, help is on the way to give Cleveland a boost in the form of Jarvis Landry.
The Browns announced on Friday that Landry has been designated to come off of the injured reserve list. The 28-year-old has been sidelined since Week 2 with an MCL sprain.
Jarvis Landry Injury Update
Landry is now free to return to practice and the Browns have 21 days to add him to the 53-man roster. There's no indication on when he'll actually play a game, but this development is encouraging.
Landry caught all six of his targets for 80 yards in his first two games this season before his MCL injury. Considering that he's recorded at least 70 receptions and 840 yards in his previous three seasons in Cleveland, expect him to be a big part of the team's passing game when he returns.
The veteran wideout's eventual return should give a boost to a Browns passing game that's struggled so far. Cleveland is averaging just 230.0 passing yards per game (25th) and the team's wide receiver room has combined for a total of one touchdown in five games.
The Browns currently have +160 odds to win the AFC North, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, which ranks only behind the Baltimore Ravens (-135).
