Cleveland Browns star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is recovering from surgery to repair a core muscle injury.

Beckham played most of his first season in Cleveland with a sports hernia. He didn’t miss a game, but the three-time Pro Bowler didn’t make the same kind of game-breaking plays that made him so dangerous for the New York Giants.

The Browns say Beckham’s operation was performed Tuesday in Philadelphia.

The team did not provide a timeline on his his return but says Beckham is expected to make a full recovery.
