Jarvis Landry undergoes hip surgery

Pro Bowl wide receiver Jarvis Landry underwent hip surgery earlier this month, the Browns announced Thursday.

Landry, who was dogged by the injury throughout the 2019 season but did not miss a game, is expected to make a full recovery for the 2020 season. The surgery was performed Feb. 4 by Dr. Chris Larson in Minnesota.

Landry is coming off one of the best individual seasons of his career after leading the Browns in most receiving categories. He caught 83 passes -- two more than his 2018 total on 11 fewer targets -- for a career-best 1,174 yards and six touchdowns. His 564 career receptions are the most-ever by a wide receiver in his first six seasons. He's made the Pro Bowl in five of his six seasons.

New offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt expressed excitement Wednesday about working with Landry and fellow wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

"I see not just talented guys; I see guys who can be leaders because they are vocal and they are voices in that locker room," Van Pelt said. "It is our job to help them be positive leaders, and that is what I think both guys want to do."
