Odell Beckham Jr. shares heartfelt message with fans following season-ending injury
Odell Beckham Jr.’s 2020 season came to an unexpected end last week when the Cleveland Browns wide receiver suffered a torn left ACL in the team’s win over the Cincinnati Bengals. It was tough to see the former LSU standout’s year end only seven games into the campaign.
Now, Beckham will have to start shifting his focus to his recovery and trying to get ready for the 2021 season. But it appears the former Tiger is still upset about the injury, and understandably so.
On Friday, Beckham shared a message with his fans via his Instagram story:

In seven games this season, Beckham had 23 receptions for 319 yards and three touchdowns. It was his second year in Cleveland after spending his first five NFL seasons with the New York Giants.
Beckham was a first-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, going to the Giants at the No. 12 overall pick, after playing at LSU from 2011-13.
This isn’t the first time that Beckham’s season has been cut short due to a major injury. In 2017, while with New York, he played only four games due to a fractured ankle. He returned from that to have solid seasons in both 2018 and 2019, so there should be optimism that the 27-year-old will do that again.
