Odell Beckham Jr. won't play Sunday when the Cleveland Browns host the Houston Texans, coach Kevin Stefanski said.

Beckham, 28, is still trying to return from the torn left ACL he suffered last October. The wide receiver had surgery the second week of November.

"I'm going to hold Odell out this week," Stefanski told reporters Wednesday. "Just felt like that was the right thing to do. Last week, I thought we had a good plan, he was close, working very hard on the side."

Beckham was a gametime decision before Sunday's Week 1 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs and wound up inactive. Stefanski said the decision was made early this week to help with planning for practices and the Texans.

"I just felt like, for this week, the prudent thing to do was let's let those other guys get all those reps, although they got a bunch last week, let's gameplan accordingly and then we'll update you guys as we get into next week."
