CLEVELAND — Editor's note: the video in the player above is from a previous story.

While quarterback Baker Mayfield was able to return after suffering an apparent shoulder injury vs. the Houston Texans on Sunday, another key member of the Cleveland Browns' offense missed most of the game, as wide receiver Jarvis Landry hurt his knee in the first quarter of the Browns' Week 2 matchup.

Landry sustained the injury following his first and only catch versus Houston — a nine-yard gain. While the five-time Pro Bowl selection's return was originally listed as questionable, he was officially downgraded to out for the remainder of the game shortly after halftime.

Already missing Odell Beckham Jr., who has yet to make his 2021 debut as he continues to recover from a torn ACL, the Browns relied on Rashard Higgins, Anthony Schwartz and Donovan Peoples-Jones at wide receiver following Landry's first-quarter exit. Rookie running back Demetric Felton also possesses experience at wide receiver and caught Mayfield's first touchdown pass of the season with a 33-yard reception on Cleveland's opening drive of the second half, giving the Browns a 21-14 lead on the way to a 31-21 win.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, it is believed that Landry suffered a sprained MCL and is undergoing further evaluations.

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 him and Beckham both out, the Browns often had no more than three wideouts on the field at any one time.
