Cleveland Browns receiver Odell Beckham Jr. might have suffered a serious knee injury Sunday during a win over the Bengals.
OBJ went down early in the game after Baker Mayfield threw an interception, and he injured his knee while trying to make a tackle. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

According to Ian Rapoport, the fear is that the star receiver “suffered a major knee injury,” and he’ll undergo an MRI Monday to see how bad the damage is. Rapoport added that the “early indications aren’t good.”
#Browns WR Odell Beckham, who was knocked out of today’s game early, is feared to have suffered a major knee injury, source said. He’ll have an MRI in the morning and perhaps there will be some better news, but early indications aren’t good.

I know the Browns won Sunday after OBJ went down, but they’re in big trouble if he has to miss extended time with a knee injury.
The electric receiver is by far and away the best player on the offense, and now he’s facing an uncertain future.
Odell Beckham’s knee injury. His left foot being pointed inward might have saved him here from a bad injury, but we’ll see. ACL tears swell up quite fast and exam is fairly reliable, so I’d say its a good sign he’s at least questionable pic.twitter.com/DMP1Uu2ByP

Teams don’t get better when they lose their best player. NFL offenses don’t get better when a superstar receiver gets taken off of the field.
Generally speaking, things can unravel very quickly.
Hopefully, it turns out that OBJ’s issue isn’t anything too serious. You never want to see anyone get hurt.
