Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will miss the remainder of the season with a torn ACL, the team announced Monday.

Beckham went down Sunday in the first quarter while attempting to tackle Cincinnati Bengals defensive back Darius Phillips, who was returning a Baker Mayfield interception. The Browns feared Beckham had suffered a significant injury on the play.

"The ball to Odell, we knew we were going to have a one-on-one and wanted to give him a chance," Mayfield lamented after the game, which the Browns won. "I didn't do that and left it short and inside. I am probably going to beat myself up about that one for a long time. He is a guy who fights for this team, and in doing that, he got hurt. Prayers and hopes for the best. That one sucks."

Beckham will finish his second campaign in Cleveland with 23 receptions for 319 yards and four total touchdowns across seven appearances. He had 74 receptions for 1,035 yards and four touchdowns last year, marking the least productive season of his career outside of 2017, when he played only four games.

The Browns acquired Beckham in a blockbuster trade with the New York Giants in March 2019. He will turn 28 on Nov. 5 and is signed through the 2023 season.

Beckham is on the books for $15.75 million in 2021, with $12.8 million of it guaranteed for injury.
