Odell Beckham Jr. has knee surgery scheduled next week. For now, the Browns have him penciled into their plans well beyond that.

The star receiver, who suffered a season-ending knee injury in an Oct. 25 game at Cincinnati, will have his torn anterior cruciate ligament repaired and will likely need up to one year to recover.

Andrew Berry, Cleveland’s general manager and executive vice president, said Wednesday on a Zoom call that Beckham will have the procedure “early next week.”

Beckham’s injury and long-term rehab have prompted questions about whether the three-time Pro Bowler — and one of the NFL’s best deep threats — has played his last game with the Browns.

It’s a subject Berry has dealt with since returning to the club’s front office earlier this year. Berry has repeatedly said he values Beckham — and nothing has changed his stance.

“I feel like this is a question I’ve literally addressed every week since I took the job,” Berry said when asked if he sees Beckham as part of the Browns’ long-term plans. “So really at this point in time, I really don’t see a difference. To me, I feel like I’ve answered this question enough.

“I can’t control what the outside noise says.”

After dealing with an injury for much of 2019, Beckham was playing well in his second season with Cleveland, which acquired him in a trade from the New York Giants in March of last year.

There has always been speculation — some of it driven by Beckham’s behavior — about his fit with the Browns, but Berry indicated he’s happy to have Beckham on his roster.

“Odell is one of the best receivers in the NFL,” he said. “He played really good football for us before he was injured. He’s done a fantastic job with his teammates at practice, he’s embraced the organization, he’s under contract for multiple years.

“So our focus with Odell is making sure he recovers from the ACL tear. We want him to be healthy and ready to go next year. But we’re pleased with him.”
