Browns await Jarvis Landry to be prepared for the season after hip surgery

Cleveland Browns’ wide receiver Jarvis Landry experienced surgery recently to repair a nagging hip injury that hampered him all through the 2019 season.

Landry had the surgery Feb. 4. A team source said Landry is relied upon to return sooner or later during training camp. The team said he is relied upon to make a full recuperation for the 2020 season.

Dr. Chris Larson played out the surgery in Minnesota.

Landry, who was selected to his fifth Pro Bowl, got 83 passes for 1,174 yards and 6 touchdowns in 2019. He didn’t miss a game, however, was limited in practice on the injury report for most of the season.

Landry said in a video he posted on Instagram that going into the Pro Bowl, he figured he could work with doctors to “formulate a plan to manage me again throughout the year” without the surgery.

He altered his mind after the Pro Bowl.

“I realized how much pain I was in,” he said. “… I was kind of happy I went to Pro Bowl because that was more of an indication that I needed the surgery.”
