What Odell Beckham's injury update means for the Eagles originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia

When the Eagles face the Browns in Week 11, Cleveland will be without its most dynamic playmaker on offense.

Odell Beckham Jr. suffered a torn ACL in the Browns' win over the Bengals on Sunday, and is done for the season, according to NFL reporter Josina Anderson:

Beckham suffered the injury attempting to make a tackle after a Baker Mayfield interception in the first quarter.

Beckham had 23 catches for 319 yards and 3 TDs through six games this season before suffering the injury early in Sunday's win.

Historically, the dynamic wideout has been a problem for the Eagles. 

In nine career games against the Eagles, Beckham has 61 catches for 732 yards and 6 touchdowns during his seven-year career, the most catches and yards he has against any team in the league.

Beckham's injury will likely force Cleveland to become even more tight end-dependent than they already were, a bad sign for the Eagles. Browns tight ends Austin Hooper, Harrison Bryant, and David Njoku have combined for 41 catches for 414 yards and six touchdowns.

Opposing No. 1 tight ends this year vs. the Eagles, through seven games: 38 catches, 385 yards, 5 TDs.

Jarvis Landry will be the Browns' No. 1 wide receiver the rest of the season. Landry has 29 catches for 367 yards so far this year, but doesn't have a receiving touchdown. The Browns also have Rashard Higgins at wide receiver, who has caught 11 passes for 163 yards and two touchdowns, and Donovan Peoples-Jones, who has three catches for 56 yards and a touchdown.

The Eagles face the Browns in Cleveland on Nov. 22.
