CLEVELAND — While the Cleveland Browns left Sunday's Week 2 matchup against the Houston Texans with a 31-21 victory, they lost one of their key offensive players in the process. On Monday, Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski announced that wide receiver Jarvis Landry is week to week after suffering an MCL sprain in the first quarter of Sunday's win.
Stefanski didn't rule out the possibility of Landry being placed on injured reserve, in which he would miss, at a minimum, Cleveland's next three games. That would include this Sunday's home matchup against the Chicago Bears and a pair of road contests against the Minnesota Vikings and Los Angeles Chargers.
Landry suffered the injury on his first and only catch against the Texans, a nine-yard reception on the Browns' opening drive. After initially being listed as questionable to return, the five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver was ruled out for the remainder of the game following halftime.
Following the game, Stefanski revealed that Landry had suffered an MCL injury and would undergo further testing.
Now in his fourth season with the Browns, Landry tallied five receptions for 71 yards and rushed for a five-yard touchdown in Cleveland's Week 1 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. With Odell Beckham Jr. also out of the lineup as he continues to recover from a torn ACL, the Browns found themselves relying on Donovan Peoples-Jones, Rashard Higgins and Anthony Schwartz at wide receiver, with the team's tight end trio of Austin Hooper, David Njoku and Harrison Bryant, as well as rookie running back Demetric Felton also seeing increases in reps.
