Friday update: Landry has been taken off the injury report and will play against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Thursday update: Jarvis Landry, when asked if he’ll play on Sunday, replied, “for sure,” per Zack Jackson. He says his knee is feeling better and that this game against the Steelers feels like a must win.
Wednesday update: Landry won’t practice on Wednesday, but Kevin Stefanski hopes he’ll be able to practice later in the week.
#Browns Kevin Stefanski said Jarvis Landry (knee) not practicing today because of injury suffered on late play Thursday. Said it’s unrelated to sprained MCL that kept him out previous 4 games. Hopes he can practice later in week.— Scott Petrak ct (@ScottPetrak) October 27, 2021
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry did not practice on Monday as the team prepares to play the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 8, per Nate Ulrich. Landry is dealing with a knee injury that he suffered in last Thursday night’s game against the Denver Broncos.
Fantasy football implications
After missing the previous four games because of an injury, Landry made his return to the field in Week 7 against the Broncos. Landry had five receptions (eight targets) for 37 yards and a touchdown in Cleveland's’ 17-14 win. The veteran wide receiver also played 54% of offensive snaps and scored 3.7 fantasy points.
Since it’s still early in the week, it’s hard to make a firm designation on if Landry will play or not. If he does play, then that would be great news as the Steelers’ pass defense has not been the greatest this season. However, if Landry cannot go, we could see Rashard Higgins and Donovan Peoples-Jones fill in that void once again.
