“This is something I never had to deal with,” Beckham said. “It is like an extremely fast car with like a little alignment or something off and it is like right in the center of what you need. The car can still go, but it is dangerous. It is just something that I have been trying to figure out and in and out of rehab every single day. Never really dealt with anything like that.”

Beckham still expects to be a dangerous threat to the Tennessee Titans defense on Sunday in the regular season opener. But is he going to be 100 percent healthy once he steps on the field at FirstEnergy Stadium?
“I do not think so. Not really. Especially with what I have had going on, I have just been kind of afraid to open it. I would rather get to Sunday and open up than to be running around and handle myself before the game.”
If Beckham isn’t at full speed, does that limit the opportunities coming his way from quarterback Baker Mayfield?
“I think that he is excited to get back to football,” Mayfield said. “He is feeling healthy and he is ready to go. He is very excited to get back on the field with a fresh start. I would not say it has anything to do with the outside, but he is ready to do it for himself.
“I think he is getting there pretty quick” head coach Freddie Kitchens said. “We have not seen him in a game, and sometimes guys play faster in games than they do in practice. I think that is all he was referring to.”
Translation, its the start of the regular season, it will take more than a little out of alignment injury to keep Beckham from making his Browns debut.
