Browns' Jarvis Landry (hip) 'little ahead of schedule'

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry (hip surgery) said he's "a little bit ahead of schedule" in rehab.

What It Means:

“The rehab process is going great,” Landry said Wednesday during a Zoom video conference with Browns beat writers. “It’s just a little difficult obviously with some of the modality type of things that I’ve been doing that obviously with quarantine and everything I hadn’t been able to have access to. So that that’s kind of been the toughest part of it. Right now, I’m a little bit ahead of schedule ... You know, I can’t predict when exactly I’ll be on the field ... But obviously my [anticipated] return date is sometime in August.” Landry is about three and a half months into a 6-8 month recovery timeline from February labrum surgery. Even if he's not ready by August, the Browns expect Landry to be ready for Week 1. He set a career-high with 1,174 yards last season.
