Jarvis Landry has landed on IR. The Browns’ wide receiver suffered an MCL twist in Sunday’s game against Texas, and the Cleveland brass ultimately decided to put Landry on the injured reserve. He will miss at least the next three weeks due to injury. MORE: NFL Power Rankings – Brown climbed to fourth, Brown defeated Houston 31-21 even in Landry’s absence. Landry only had one catch for nine yards in the team’s opening campaign, which resulted in injury. Cleveland was effectively running the ball, with Nick Chubb and Karim Hunt teaming up for 146 yards. Here’s the latest on Landry’s injury news and when we can expect him to return: Injury update Jarvis Landry was originally described as week to week in an MCL sprain, and he will be officially out for at least the next three weeks after being put into injured reserve. He would be eligible to return to Week Six against the Cardinals, and Landry earned one pass Sunday for nine yards in the opening round of the Browns-Texas game. He will not return after sustaining a knee injury. Good news for Cleveland and their fans: Beckham could return to the field this Sunday for the Chargers in Los Angeles after missing most of last year to a rupture in the AFC Champions League. MORE: NFL Week 3 Picks Live | Against the spread: With Landry out, the Browns turn to Donovan Peoples-Jones, Rashard Higgins and Anthony Schwarz as their top competitors. Somewhat unsurprisingly, the Browns still did not have a 100-yard receiver at two weeks, with tight end David Njoku closest to the 100-yard mark with 94 yards. Expect Cleveland to bend a bit in the running game and tight ends if Beckham doesn’t return to the field on Sunday. Cleveland’s plan was to have Beckham back on the field by week three, and he looks set to make his season debut on Sunday, and within two games the Browns put together one of the best lunge attacks in the league, with a total of seven touchdowns. Chubb led the way with three quick touchdowns in the early rounds.
