The Cleveland Browns await news on Odell Beckham Jr after he suffered a game-ending knee injury in their 37-34 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

The wide receiver was involved in an awkward first-quarter collision while attempting to chase down Darius Phillips after he had intercepted Baker Mayfield.

Beckham received treatment on the field and was taken straight to the locker room before later being ruled out of the game. NFL Network‘s Ian Rapoport has reported, per a source, that it is feared OBJ has suffered a ‘major injury’.

OBJ had entered the game with 23 catches for 319 yards and three touchdowns, and off the back of a down week last Sunday in which he had just two catches for 25 yards in a heavy defeat to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
