Browns receiver Jarvis Landry revealed on a Zoom call this week that he’s a little ahead of schedule in his rehab from hip surgery in February, but he also stressed that he’ll be smart about his return, and that’s exactly what the Browns need.
The target date has always been August, but players usually return on a limited basis and work themselves up to full-go.
I can’t predict when exactly when I’ll be on the field, whether that’s July, August or September, but obviously, my return date is sometime in August, he said.
Of course, Landry will want to keep his six-year streak of never missing a game alive, but even then, he’ll do what’s best for himself and the team. Yeah, it’s in my mind, but I’m really focused on this rehab to make sure that I can be ready for the season, he said.
Landry and the Browns have lofty goals again this season, and he knows he needs to be healthy in November for December even more than September. Granted, the Browns start with a bang with the opener in Baltimore and then a Thursday night game at home against the Bengals, but Landry is striking the right note with this rehab, knowing what’s at stake down the stretch.
