The Cleveland wide receiver is playing through a broken rib that he suffered during the Browns win over the Indianapolis Colts.
If there is one thing that everyone knows about Jarvis Landry it is that he is extremely tough. That toughness has been put to the test as Landry is currently playing with a broken rib. Landry stated that “It hurts” when he met with the media Thursday.
Playing through a broken rib is obviously not fun, but that will not stop Jarvis Landry. Landry is yet to miss a game in his seven-year career, even though he probably should have missed more than a few games last season. Toughness can go a long way, but it is important to make sure that an injury is not impacting play on the field. It is also important to make sure that an injury does not become worse by playing through it.
Jarvis Landry has 24 receptions for 319 yards in six games this season. Landry is currently on pace for a career-low in receptions and his second-lowest receiving yardage total in a season. The last time Landry finished with fewer than 976 yards receiving was his rookie season in Miami (758). Landry’s production in the passing game trending back in the right direction would be a welcome sight for a Browns passing attach that has not been great this season.
