Cleveland receiver Odell Beckham and Washington safety Landon Collins will have more tests Monday to determine the extent of what could be season-ending injuries.

Beckham injured his left knee while attempting to make a tackle after Baker Mayfield threw an interception on the team’s opening pass play. Beckham limped to the locker room and didn’t return.

Losing Beckham would be a significant setback for the Browns (5-2). He has 23 receptions for 319 yards and three touchdowns this season.

Collins injured his left ankle/Achilles tendon in noncontact fashion early in the second quarter. He limped off to the injury tent before being ruled out minutes later and carted off the sideline with his helmet on and head down. Collins has been an integral part of a Washington defense that allowed its fewest points in three seasons.
