The Facts: Landry suffered a knee injury in the first quarter and did not return against the Texans. Head Coach Kevin Stefanski said that Landry will undergo an MRI.
Diehards Line:With teammate Odell Beckham still not ready to play in game action yet this season, Landry's injury is a big loss for the Browns.
The Facts: Taylor was forced to leave the game against the Browns after injuring his hamstring during a touchdown run. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that Taylor is not expected to play Thursday night vs. the Panthers, as the team is awaiting results of an MRI exam.
Diehards Line:Rookie Davis Mills filled in for Taylor and completed 8/18 pass attempts for 102 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT.
The Facts: HC Kevin Stefanski said today that Beckham will not play Sunday against the Texans.
Diehards Line: That’s surprising, given that last week the Browns listed Beckham as questionable and didn’t rule him out until 90 minutes before kickoff. Stefanski described ruling Beckham out as giving more clarity to the situation this week. Whatever the reasons, everyone in Cleveland is left to wonder just how long it will be until Beckham’s torn ACL is healed sufficiently that he can play. It may be a while.
The Facts: Engram is not ready to begin the 2021 season yet. Engram has been ruled out for Thursday night’s game against Washington.
Diehards Line: The Giants have said Engram is making progress in recovery from his calf injury, but he missed Week One and will now miss Week Two as well. Kyle Rudolph is the Giants’ top tight end while Engram is out. Saquon Barkley has been listed as questionable as he continues to recover from last year’s knee injury. Barkley played on Sunday and appears likely to play on Thursday as well. The Giants have also ruled out Out: linebacker Cam Brown (hamstring) and guard Shane Lemieux (knee).
