Landry caught five of six targets for 48 yards, rushed twice for four yards and completed a 19-yard pass in Sunday's 37-34 win over the Bengals.
Analysis: Landry's 28-yard catch-and-run in the second quarter was the first completion for quarterback Baker Mayfield after five misses, and it started a streak of 21 consecutive Mayfield completions. The veteran wide receiver tied Rashard Higgins for the team lead in targets, and Landry also put his throwing ability on display with a 19-yard pass to Donovan Peoples-Jones in the fourth quarter. Fellow wideout Odell Beckham exited with a knee injury on the opening drive, leaving Landry as Mayfield's most established receiving option. If Beckham can't go against the Raiders in Week 8, Landry could have a chance to surpass his season high of nine targets, even considering the run-first nature of Cleveland's offense.
Landry (hip/ribs) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Bengals, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Analysis: Landry created a stir earlier this week when he admitted that he's been playing through a broken rib since Oct. 11, but the injury won't keep him off the field. The wideout remained limited in practice throughout the week, which could be par for the course moving forward as the Browns look to limit the wear and tear on his body heading into gamedays. Coming off offseason hip surgery, Landry hasn't seemed to recapture top form just yet, as he's averaging four receptions for 53.1 yards per game through six contests.
Landry (ribs/hip) remained limited at practice Thursday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Analysis: Landry's continued limitations at practice gained added context Thursday when the wideout revealed that he's been dealing with a broken rib that he suffered Oct. 11. That said, Landry hasn't missed a game durting his seven-year NFL career and that's almost assuredly not going to change this week, though he'll probably end up being officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals.
Landry (hip/ribs) logged a limited practice Wednesday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Analysis: Landry didn't practice last Wednesday and Thursday before returning to limited session Friday, so he's already off to a better start in Week 7, as he continues to manage his aches and pains. While seeing the field for 44 of the Browns' 57 snaps on offense in Sunday's 38-7 loss to the Steelers, Landry -- who drew the start along with fellow WR Odell Beckham -- hauled in three of his five targets for 40 yards.
Landry recorded three receptions on five targets for 40 yards in Week 6 against the Steelers.
Analysis: Landry struggled along with the rest of the Browns' offense, as he failed to command volume or provide splash plays. His longest gain of the day went for 24 yards, the second most explosive play for Cleveland. Landry has battled both a hip and rib injury throughout the season, and in an offense that doesn't produce significant passing volume, it may be difficult for him to post robust stat lines. Nevertheless, Landry will face a positive matchup in Week 7 against the Bengals.
Landry (ribs) is active Week 6 against the Steelers.
Analysis: Known for his durability, Landry wasn't going to let a few missed practices this week jeopardize his streak of six consecutive seasons with 16 games played. The remainder of his offensive will have similar fortune, as starting quarterback Baker Mayfield (chest) and fellow wideout Odell Beckham (illness) have both been cleared to play as well. Landry will face a middle-of-the-road Pittsburgh secondary that ranks No. 14 in the league in fantasy points per game allowed to opposing wide receivers in PPR formats.
Landry (ribs/hip) is expected to play Sunday against the Steelers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Analysis: The same applies to fellow wide receiver Odell Beckham (illness), as well as quarterback Baker Mayfield. The Browns are thus in line to face the Steelers in Week 6 with the key components of their passing attack available. Landry has yet to score a TD through five contests to date, but his 21 catches (on 28 targets) for 279 yards have yielded a degree of PPR utility.
Landry (ribs/hip) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's contest in Pittsburgh, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Analysis: Landry logged his first practice session of the week as a limited participant Friday, after having previously put forth back-to-back absences due to hip and rib injuries. Coach Kevin Stefanski said that Landry is " making a push to Sunday like he always does," a hint that the veteran wideout is trending in the right direction to face the Steelers. Quarterback Baker Mayfield (chest/ribs) and fellow top wideout Odell Beckham (illness) are both also listed as questionable.
Landry (ribs/hip) was on the field at Friday's practice Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Analysis: The 27-year-old sat out practice Wednesday and Thursday, so even finishing the week as a limited participant is a step in the right direction. Landry's improvement puts him on track to be available Sunday at Pittsburgh, though his outlook will receive more clarity when Cleveland's official injury report is published later in the day.
Landry (ribs/hip) didn't practice Thursday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Analysis: Back-to-back absences set the stage for Landry's Friday practice participation to be pivotal with regard to his status for Sunday's game against the Steelers. Fellow starting wideout Odell Beckham was sent home with an illness Thursday and QB Baker Mayfield (chest/ribs) is also banged up, so there's a few moving parts relative to the Browns' Week 6 passing attack in advance of the team's final practice of the week.
Landry (ribs/hip) didn't practice Wednesday, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Analysis: Landry has been managing a hip issue, but has appeared in all five of Cleveland's games to date. His listed rib injury is new, but coach Kevin Stefanski noted Wednesday that he hoped to have Landry back at practice later this week.
Landry caught four of nine targets for 88 yards during Sunday's 32-23 win over the Colts.
Analysis: Landry led the team in targets and receiving yards while finishing second in receptions. He set a new season high in receiving yardage thanks in large part to a season-long gain of 32 yards. Landry, who was held under 50 yards in each of the last three games, will look to build on this productive outing in next Sunday's matchup against a Pittsburgh secondary that hasn't played to its full potential yet this season.
Landry caught five of six targets for 48 yards and threw a 37-yard touchdown pass during Sunday's 49-38 win over the Cowboys.
Analysis: Landry got the scoring started early in the first quarter when he launched a long touchdown pass to O'dell Beckham Jr. He tied for the team lead in catches and finished second in receiving yardage, but he still failed to surpass 50 receiving yards for the third straight game. Landry has uncharacteristically drawn just 19 targets through four games this season and still hasn't scored a touchdown of his own. He'll hope for better results next Sunday against the Colts.
Browns offensive coordinator admitted Thursday that Landry probably isn't 100 percent healthy following his February hip surgery, but the receiver isn't expected to miss any time because of the injury, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Analysis: The Browns have listed Landry on their injury reports for three straight weeks with the hip issue, but since he was a full participant Thursday for a fifth straight practice, fantasy managers don't have reason to fret about his status for Sunday's game in Dallas. Instead, Landry's lackluster production to date is the greater concern, as he's been limited to 12 receptions for 143 yards and no touchdowns across 13 targets through the Browns' first three games. Landry may still be in the process of working his way back to full speed following the hip surgery, but a downturn in playing time also helps explain his lagging numbers. After playing north of 90 percent of the Browns' offensive snaps in 13 of his 16 games last season, Landry has been limited to snap shares between 60 and 71 percent in each of his three outings in 2020.
Landry totaled four receptions on four targets for 36 yards in Week 3 against Washington.
Analysis: Landry got off to a hot start in the game, totaling 28 yards and three catches in the first quarter. However, he added only one additional reception in the second quarter before being shut out in the second half. This performance is one additional reason for concern regarding Landry, as he has not surpassed five receptions or 65 yards in any of the Browns' three games this season.
Landry said he's getting closer to being 100 percent following offseason hip surgery, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Analysis: Landry acknowledge he's not fully back from the surgery he underwent in February. At the time he was given a six-to-eight month recovery timeline, and he's still a few weeks away from the eight-month mark. "I'm still working through things,'' he said. "I'm giving it my best, giving it my all when I am out there. Obviously, whatever my 100 percent is on Sunday, that's what I'm giving." Landry's had a modest start to the season with eight catches (nine targets) and 107 receiving yards through the first two weeks. If the Browns continue to run like they did in last week's win over the Bengals -- they ran 60 percent of the time and attempted just 23 passes -- targets will be capped for Landry and fellow wideout Odell Beckham.
Landry (hip) brought in all three of his targets for 46 yards in the Browns' 35-30 win over the Bengals on Thursday.
Analysis: The veteran managed his hip issues throughout the short practice week with limited practice reps, and it appears to have worked well in terms of keeping Landry upright and out on the field for the second straight week. As in the season-opening loss to the Ravens, Landry's numbers were nothing spectacular, and in fact, checked in a tick below his 5-61 line against Baltimore. The passing game hasn't been much of a point of emphasis over the first two contests under new head coach Kevin Stefanski in part due to game script, but there will undoubtedly be times this season when Baker Mayfield and company will be called upon to do more. For the moment, Landry will try to benefit from the extra rest ahead of a Week 3 home date against the Washington Football Team on Sunday, Sept. 27.
Landry (hip) is listed as active Thursday against the Bengals, Andrew Gribble of the Browns' official site reports.
Analysis: As expected, Landry will suit up after having his practice reps capped this week. Expect Landry to work in conjunction with Odell Beckham as the Browns' top wide receiver duo.
Adam Schefter of ESPN confirms that Landry (hip) is expected to suit up for Thursday night's contest against the Bengals.
Analysis: Landry's Week 2 status will be confirmed upon the release of the Browns' inactives in advance of Thursday's 8:20 ET kickoff, but it looks like he'll be out there, barring any setbacks. In that scenario, he'll look to build off the five-catch, 61-yard effort he managed in this past Sunday's 38-6 blowout loss to the Ravens, a game in which Landry logged 52 of a possible 73 snaps on offense.
Landry (hip) is expected to play Thursday night against the Bengals, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Landry officially carries a "questionable" tag into this week's AFC North matchup after logging a limited practice session Wednesday. It appears the wideout is on track to play, but stay tuned for the official inactives report 90 minutes before kickoff to confirm Landry's status.
