CLEVELAND, Ohio (92.3 The Fan) – Odell Beckham Jr. will require sports hernia surgery in the offseason, Ian Rapoport of NFL Netowrk reported Sunday morning but he will continue to play through the injury.

Beckham admitted earlier in the week he’s been playing hurt this season.

“I’ve been pretty much banged up all year since whatever happened in camp,” Beckham said earlier this week. “I’ve been playing through it, doing whatever I can just to make it to Sunday for the game. So anytime that Sunday comes around, 1 o’clock, 4 o’clock, 8, Monday night, Thursday, I’m going to give this team everything that I have, no matter what.”

Beckham told ESPN’s Josina Anderson Sunday morning that “there is no decision on surgery yet.”

Jay Glazer reported on Fox Sports' NFL pregame show that “Odell Beckham has told opposing players and coaches before games 'hey come get me'....I don't see the relationship ending well.”

Beckham has caught 57 catches for 805 yards, which rank second on the team behind Jarvis Landry, and two touchdowns this season. His 14.1 yards per catch average ranks third in his career.

The Browns will be without starting right tackle Chris Hubbard and defensive end Olivier Vernon.
