While the Browns put together an impressive comeback to knock off the Bengals on Sunday afternoon, the game got off to a brutal start for Cleveland. On the team’s first offensive possession, Baker Mayfield threw an interception in an attempt to find Odell Beckham Jr. down the field. OBJ attempted to chase down Darius Phillips and got tossed up into the air awkwardly.
OBJ limped to the locker room and did not return to the game after the freak play and now it appears the worst-case scenario has come to life as the wide receiver reportedly texted Josina Anderson telling her that he has torn his ACL and his season is over.

It goes without saying that this is a massive blow to the Browns who sit at 5-2 on the year after their 37-34 win over Cincinnati on Sunday.
OBJ had 319 yards on 23 catches and four total touchdowns before suffering the injury. Mayfield’s No. 1 target this year has been Jarvis Landry who has 367 receiving yards on the year but zero touchdowns.
