The Cleveland Browns will kick off their season with a serious test on the road against the Kansas City Chiefs. And there's a chance they enter that contest without wideout Odell Beckham Jr., who is officially questionable after being limited in practice.

However, the latest on Beckham is great news ahead of this AFC clash.

Odell Beckham Jr. Injury

"All signs" point to Beckham suiting up in Week 1, accoridng to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal. Head coach Kevin Stefanski tried to be coy about Beckham's injury status recently, but it appears it's just smoke and mirrors.

OBJ went down in Week 7 last year after tearing his ACL. However, he's drawn rave reviews in camp, and that could mean a huge bounce-back year for the three-time Pro Bowler.

Though Beckham has struggled to regain his early form, he's still a perennial 1,000-yard pass-catcher when healthy. His sheer presence is enough to open up the Browns' offense, which makes things easier for everyone. A true return to his peak could lift Cleveland to new heights in 2021.

The Browns own +1500 odds to win Super Bowl LVI, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
