The Cleveland Browns have been dealt almost exclusively bad news on the injury front over the past few days. But ahead of tonight’s big game against the Denver Broncos, they made a big decision on star wide receiver Jarvis Landry.
On Thursday, the Browns officially activated Landry off injured reserve. If all goes well, he should return to the field tonight for the first time since suffering an MCL sprain in Week 2.
Landry has six receptions for 80 yards this season and has caught every ball thrown his way. He has led the Browns in receiving yards in each of the last three seasons.
But it won’t be Baker Mayfield throwing Landry the ball tonight (if anyone throws to him at all). It’s going to be veteran backup Case Keenum.
We have activated WR Jarvis Landry to the active roster.

The Cleveland Browns’ injury report for tonight’s game is pretty excessive. On top of not having Baker Mayfield, they’ll also be without star running back Nick Chubb and defensive back A.J. Green.
The team has also has a number of players currently dealing with a variety of injuries. Odell Beckham Jr. is still out, while players like Jadeveon Clowney, Jack Conklin, Malik Jackson, JC Tretter and Jedrick Wills are all battling injuries.
The Browns are 3-3 and slowly losing ground in the AFC North title race. A loss tonight could put them as many as three games out of that race heading into midseason.
Will Jarvis Landry be able to lift the Browns over the Broncos tonight?
