On Tuesday, the Browns announced that they have placed Landry on injured reserve after the five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver suffered an MCL sprain in the first quarter of Cleveland's 31-21 Week 2 win over the Houston Texans on Sunday. As a result, Landry will miss at least the Browns' upcoming Week 3 matchup against the Chicago Bears, as well as a pair of road games against the Minnesota Vikings and Los Angeles Chargers.

Speaking to reporters on Monday, Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski labeled Landry's status as "week to week."

At the earliest, Landry would be eligible to return for Cleveland's Week 7 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals at FirstEnergy Stadium, although the 28-year-old could remain on injured reserve longer than that. Last season, Browns running back Nick Chubb was out of action for five weeks, including the team's bye week, with a similar injury.

With Landry on injured reserve, Cleveland has signed defensive end Ifeadi Odenigbo from its practice squad. The Browns wide receiving corps could also see a boost this week from the potential return of Landry's close friend and former LSU teammate, Odell Beckham Jr., who has yet to make his 2021 season debut as he continues to recover from a torn ACL that cost him the final nine regular-season games and two postseason games last season.
