Cleveland Browns wide recevier Jarvis Landry has decided to undergo surgery after originally opting not to have the procedure.
Well this is a bit awkward. Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry originally did not plan to have surgery for his ongoing hip issue. That is no longer the case. Landry underwent surgery earlier this month.
Landry dealt with the issue all season and believed that surgery would not be necessary. Interestingly enough that did not stop him from participating in the Pro Bowl. Although he did feel pain while playing in the Pro Bowl as he stated in his Instagram post.
Landry also mentions that rehab was originally the plan and multiple hip specialists were consulted on the matter. Even after all of that, surgery is ultimately the option here.
The recovery timetable for Jarvis Landry is expected to be six-to-eight months. That puts his return at sometime in August at the earliest and October at the latest.
You have to imagine that this should have some sort of impact on Landry’s ability to learn the new offense coming to Cleveland. Sure, Landry will be present during some of these activities (he won’t be bedridden at this time after all), but there is a clear difference between watching and doing. A player can learn a lot more by actually running the routes instead of just observing.
Cleveland’s new offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt said he had “big plans” for Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. on Wednesday. Well, those plans are on hold for the time being as Landry is recovering.
