Odell Beckham Jr. is actually a key difference-maker for a playoff team down the stretch this year when he fully recovers from the torn ACL he suffered in the Super Bowl.

Appearing on ESPN Radio’s Keyshawn, JWill and Max, Adam Schefter said he doesn’t think Beckham will undoubtedly be back on the field until Thanksgiving.

It has been the expected timeline for Beckham dating back to to early in the offseason. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler said on GET RIGHT UP in June the three-time Pro Bowler “could take his time” speaking with teams, since they don’t expect him to be healthy “until October and maybe even November, so far as ‘full-go’ back from that ACL.”

Beckham tore his ACL in the next quarter of the Super Bowl on Feb. 13. He confirmed on Feb. 23 he had surgery to correct the injury. A potential Thanksgiving return would give him nine months of recovery.

There were hints that Beckham could re-sign with the LA Rams when he could be prepared to play again. The Buffalo Bills, who play the Rams in the 2022 regular-season opener on Thursday, are also connected to the star wideout.

Following a contentious exit from the Cleveland Browns in the center of last season, Beckham performed well with the Rams down the stretch. He caught five touchdown passes in eight games with LA through the regular season.

It had been in the playoffs when Beckham’s value really stood out. The 29-year-old had 288 receiving yards and two touchdowns in four playoff games, including 113 yards on nine catches in the NFC Championship Game contrary to the SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA 49ers.
