Odell Beckham Jr. is done for the remainder of the season.

The Cleveland Browns wide receiver suffered a season-ending injury when he tore the ACL in his left knee during Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. ESPN reports that an MRI confirmed the injury on Monday morning.

Beckham was injured in the first quarter when Bengals’ Darius Phillips intercepted quarterback Baker Mayfield’s first pass of the game. Beckham chased Phillips and attempted to tackle him after the interception. The star wide receiver limped to the locker room after attempting the tackle.

“Obviously, it’s a big loss. He’s a huge part of what we do,” Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said Monday, according to ESPN. “So now we’ll just have to huddle up, and find some different ways and find some different people and put them in that role.

“You never replace a player of Odell’s caliber with one player. It’s going to take multiple guys,” Stefanski added.

After Beckham’s exit, Mayfield completed a franchise-record 21 consecutive passes and had five touchdowns in the Browns 37-34 win over the Bengals.

“Man, I know how f*cking hard you work and how invested you are to be legendary. My heart hurt!!!!! I love you brudda,” teammate Jarvis Landry posted on Instagram on Monday.

Mayfield posted, “A win is a win. That one was for you 13,” after the win.

In his seventh NFL season, Beckham finishes this year with 23 receptions for 319 yards and another 72 rushing yards.

The fire that destroyed Shaquille O’Neal’s Atlanta landmark Krispy Kreme Doughnuts location earlier this month has been ruled an act of arson.

On Friday, the Atlanta Fire Rescue Department announced its findings through social media and requested the public’s help to identify their suspect. Two photos were released of the suspect involved, and a $10,000 reward has been offered, Yahoo reports.

Officials did not say how the February 10 fire started. Two employees were working in the store’s drive-thru at the time of the tragedy but luckily escaped safely after seeing wires smoking.

Firefighters were able to salvage most of the building, the outlet reported.

The location was opened in 1965 as part of the franchise’s initial expansion away from North Carolina. Shaq acquired it in 2016, who later became a global spokesman for the company.

It’s unknown when the store will reopen, but the NBA Hall of Famer says that they “will be back stronger the

an ever.”

FBI Zeroes In On Suspect In Capitol Officer Brian Sicknick’s Death

According to officials, the FBI has zeroed in on an unidentified suspect in the death of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick. Sicknick lost his life due to injuries sustained during the January 6 siege at the U.S. Capitol Building.

CNN reports that initial reports of Sicknick being attacked with a fire extinguisher, which turned out to be untrue. Instead, the theory is he became ill from the bear spray used by the angry mob during the attacks. It was previously reported that Sicknick made it back to his office, where he collapsed. He later died at an area hospital.

“We are awaiting toxicology results and continue to work with other government agencies regarding the death investigation,” U.S. Capitol Police said in a statement.

Newly surfaced video footage is credited with helping investigators narrow down the suspect pool. Despite having video footage and photographs of the attack, investigators have struggled to build a strong murder case in Sicknick’s death. It’s not clear what charges the unknown suspect will face.

“Officer Sicknick’s family has asked for privacy during this difficult time and that the spreading of misinformation stop regarding the cause of his death,” said the statement from Capitol Police. “The Department and the Sicknick family appreciate the outpouring of support for our fallen officer.”

Sicknick, a New Jersey native, laid in state at the Capitol Building earlier this month, an honor typically reserved for the United States government leaders. President Joe Biden, First Lady Jill Biden, and congressional leaders came to the ceremony to pay their respects to the fallen officer.

The nation’s largest theater chain, AMC Entertainment, awarded its CEO with a $3.75 million bonus for handling the COVID-19 outbreak.

In addition to CEO Adam Aron receiving $3.75 million, several other execs will also be financially rewarded. Chief financial officer Sean Goodman will receive $507,500, EVP US/Canada operations; John McDonald will receive $194,550; VP Worldwide Programming and Chief Content Officer Elizabeth Frank will walk away with $180,650 and EVP, CMO Stephen Colanero will get a $173,875 bonus.

These “supplemental special incentive cash bonuses” are granted to recognize those within the organization that kept the company from going under during the pandemic. Corporate employees and theatre management will also receive bonuses that will come from the same $8.3 million designated fund for the bonuses.

AMC says that the bonuses are “to recognize the extraordinary efforts of employees to maintain the Company’s business and preserve stockholder value during the COVID-19 pandemic, encourage continued engagement and retention, and incentivize our management and employees during the continuing and unprecedented difficult business conditions.”

During the early days of the pandemic, movie theaters were forced to close their doors. AMC leaders took it upon themselves to have their salary cut by 15% and decrease other compensation over a three-year period. Aron lost $1.6 million as a result of the pay cut. About 30,000 theater employees were furloughed during the lockdowns. However, they have slowly begun returning to work as theaters continue to open across the country.
