Browns' Odell Beckham Jr. 'looked good' in first practice after torn ACL

Cleveland Browns star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. suffered a torn ACL on Oct. 25 and underwent surgery in November, but Browns insider Mary Kay Cabot of reported last month Beckham appears on track to be in the lineup when Cleveland begins the 2021 NFL season at the Kansas City Chiefs on Sept. 12. 

Per Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal, the 28-year-old practiced for the first time since the injury during Cleveland's opening day of mandatory minicamp. While Beckham wasn't involved in team drills, he was not wearing a brace or protective sleeve on the knee during individual work.

"He looked good to me," Browns coach Kevin Stefanski told reporters about Beckham following Tuesday's practice. "He did some individual drills. He did routes on air. He's still progressing through. I think he's seven or eight months post-ACL surgery, and he looks a lot different than I did seven or eight months post-ACL." 

Stefanski could not, however, say if Beckham will be a full participant when veterans report for training camp sessions on July 27.  

Beckham previously worked out with quarterback Baker Mayfield in Texas ahead of minicamp: 

Mayfield said in late April he was "looking forward" to having a fresh start with Beckham as the Browns prepare for the upcoming campaign.
