Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is impressing his teammate Jarvis Landry with just how well his recovery has gone following knee surgery. Beckham participated in Landry’s charity softball event on Saturday and while his swing looked terrible, he looked fully healthy.
“Man, he looked amazing,” Landry said following the event, according to ESPN. “I can’t wait for you guys to see him. I can’t wait for him to get back out there. He’s in fantastic shape and he’s ready to go. He’s only what, 6½ months [beyond surgery], and he’s already doing some things that will blow your mind away.”
Beckham underwent surgery a few weeks after suffering a torn right anterior cruciate ligament in the opening minutes of Cleveland’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals back on October 25th, which ended his season and put a cloud of uncertainty over his future with the organization.
“I don’t expect nothing less from Odell,” Landry said. “That’s his character and that’s who he is. He’s a guy who’s always going to train hard and be prepared.”
Beckham also participated in a workout with Landry and Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield in Texas.
“He ran a post route, sticking off the same injured leg and exploding out of it, then going up, jumping off that same leg and making a catch, doing his thing — what he does with one hand,” Landry said. “You sit back and you’re like, ‘Wait. He’s even better than he was last year.'”
