Odell Beckham Jr. Has Successful Core Muscle Surgery, Full Recovery Expected


Cleveland announced that Odell Beckham Jr. went under for successful surgery on a core muscle, per Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com.

Beckham battled the injury for the entire season and had previously noted that it didn’t allow him to be his self out on the gridiron. The injury prevented him from making certain cuts, not allowing him to go 100% and noticeably affected his route running at times.

The star receiver is expected to make a full recovery from the surgery. The operation was performed by Dr. Bill Meyers in Philadelphia.

Even through injury, Beckham was able to rack up 1,035 yards and four touchdowns. A good season for any receiver, but subpar for Odell who had only once been held under 1,300 yards when playing a full healthy season. This surgery should really allow Beckham to open things up next year and be the player he can be in Cleveland. The surgery comes quickly after the controversy

Glad that he is expected to make a full recovery. I really hope he has a better season than this years.
