Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry said Thursday that he's been playing with a broken rib.

Landry said he sustained the injury on the opening series of the Browns' 32-23 win over Indianapolis on Oct. 11.

Landry absorbed a big hit on a 32-yard reception and left the game, missing just five plays. Landry was able to finish the contest and play the following week against Pittsburgh, catching three passes for 40 yards.

Landry has a team-leading 24 catches for 319 yards and no touchdowns this season. He has 588 catches for 6,507 yards and 32 touchdowns in 102 career games (93 starts) for the Browns and Miami Dolphins (2014-17).

Landry was limited in practice Wednesday. He hasn't missed a game in his seven-year career.

Landry had hip surgery in February and claims he's not yet 100 percent recovered from that. Landry revealed last December that he played the 2019 season with a fractured sacrum. The sacrum is a large triangular bone that fits like a wedge between the two hip bones.
