Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was reportedly taken to the locker room during the first half of Super Bowl LVI.

NFL Network's Ian Rapaport reports Beckham was "headed to the locker room following what appeared to be a non-contact knee injury."

NBC Sports sideline reporter Michele Tafoya reported Beckham's status was "questionable" just before halftime during Sunday's (February 13) live broadcast.

Beckham provided the Rams with their first touchdown of Super Bowl LVI on a 17-yard reception from Matthew Stafford with 6:22 remaining in the first quarter.

The former LSU standout had a game-high 52 receiving yards on two receptions before experiencing the injury.

Beckham signed with the eventual NFC Champion Rams days after being released by the Cleveland Browns on November 5, subjecting him to waivers, allowing any NFL team to put in a claim for him and inherit the remaining $7.25 million on his contract with Cleveland prior to the February 9 deadline, in which he officially became a free agent, allowing him to choose his own destination.

Beckham emerged as one of the NFL's brightest stars after being selected No. 12 overall by the New York Giants in the 2014 NFL Draft, following a stellar collegiate career at LSU.

The Louisiana native was the 2014 NFL Rookie of the Year and a three-time Pro Bowler during his first five seasons with the Giants, before being acquired by the Browns, along with Olivier Vernon, in exchange for Jabrill PeppersKevin Zeitler and multiple 2019 NFL Draft picks in March 2019.

Beckham's tenure in Cleveland was considered a disappointment as he's caught only 114 receptions for 1,586 yards and seven touchdowns during three seasons, while also recording eight rushes for 96 yards and one touchdown.

The 29-year-old has since returned to form with the Rams, recording 27 receptions for 305 yards and five touchdowns during seven games in the regular season, as well as 19 receptions for 236 yards and a touchdown during Los Angeles' current playoff run prior to Super Bowl LVI.
