Odell Beckham Jr. Update: Rams Reportedly Fear Receiver Tore Same ACL

Beckham tore his left ACL last season


Feb 14, 2022

Odell Beckham Jr. might be facing another long, arduous injury recovery.

The superstar receiver left Sunday’s Super Bowl LVI after injuring his left knee during the first half at SoFi Stadium. Beckham, who tore his left ACL last season while playing for the Cleveland Browns, eventually watched his team earn a 23-20 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

In a column published Monday morning, Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated revealed that Los Angeles fears Beckham tore the same ACL.

Check out this excerpt:

Over the last month, McVay talked about winning a Lombardi Trophy for Stafford. Eric Weddle talked about winning one for Donald. Everyone wanted to win one for Whitworth.

Which, really, is what McVay strived to build — we, not me — since he got the job in 2017.

That he’s accomplished it mattered a lot in Super Bowl LVI. It mattered when Beckham went down, with what the Rams fear to be a torn ACL. It mattered when the second half couldn’t have started worse, with a 75-yard touchdown heave from Joe Burrow followed by a Stafford pick. It mattered when Stafford and the offense got the ball back with 6:13 left and 79 yards to go. It definitely mattered when the defense needed one last stop.

And because the Rams could count on their best players, and their best players could count on one another, the team won it all.

Beckham, 29, caught two balls for 52 yards and a touchdown before exiting the game. He is scheduled to become a free agent this offseason.

He and the Rams reportedly hope to work out a new contract this spring. It remains to be seen how Beckham’s potentially serious knee injury affects his free agency.
