After a few months of considering the option, Browns receiver Jarvis Landry underwent hip surgery earlier this month. Following a successful operation, the Browns have issued an injury update.
Landry is expected to make a full recovery ahead of the 2020 season, according to the Browns’ official statement. Cleveland also clarified the hip surgery was performed due to an injury that “limited” Landry throughout the 2019-20 season.
The exact timetable for the Pro Bowl receiver’s return is still unclear as further rehab tests will be performed down the line. But Landry’s expected to return to full-go “at some point in July,” according to Cleveland.com. The Browns’ full statement can be found below:
“Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry underwent successful hip surgery after dealing with an injury that limited him throughout the 2019 season. The surgery was performed by Dr. Chris Larson in Minnesota on Tuesday, February 4th. He is expected to make a full recovery for the 2020 season.”

Landry is a critical piece for Cleveland as the Browns attempt to turn things around under rookie head coach Kevin Stefanski.
Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. remain one of the best WR duos in the NFL. Now, it’s just a matter of QB Baker Mayfield taking the next step and getting his play-makers the ball on a consistent basis.
Fortunately for the Browns, Landry is expected to be fully healthy by the start of the 2020 season.
