The Cleveland Browns were given some sobering news on Monday.

The team confirmed that star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. sustained a torn ACL in his left leg during Sunday’s 37-34 win against the Cincinnati Bengals, and will be sidelined for the remainder of the 2020 season.

The 27-year old has amassed 23 receptions for 319 yards, three rushes for 72 yards, and five combined touchdowns in seven games this season.

The three-time Pro Bowler has failed to connect with QB Baker Mayfield, and live up to lofty expectations placed on him since being acquired in a blockbuster deal with the New York Giants prior to the 2018 NFL season.

The Browns (5-2) are on pace to make the postseason for the first time since 2002.

His story was straight out of a movie, but the Washington Football Team is ready to move on from the veteran quarterback.

According to reports, the 2020 NFC East champions are parting ways with Alex Smith and going in a new direction for the 2021 campaign.

Smith, 36, came back this past season after miraculously recovering from a devastating leg injury nearly two years ago that resulted in life-threatening necrotizing fasciitis and sepsis which required him to undergo a total of 17 surgeries.

He ended up playing a total of eight games in 2020, amassing 168 pass completions for 1582 yards, six touchdowns and eight interceptions.
