When will Odell Beckham Jr. make his season debut? That's anyone's guess. It won't be in Week 2. Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski ruled him out for Sunday's home opener against the Texans.

OBJ is coming off of a torn ACL, but was a participant in 7-on-7 scrimmaging drills prior to the start of the regular season. He seemed to indicate on social media that he was frustrated with being sidelined.
From FOX News:
Around the time of Stefanski’s announcement, Beckham Jr. shared a video of himself driving, while listening to "7am on Bridle Path" — a song on Drake’s "Certified Lover Boy" album.
He filmed a specific portion of the song, in which Drake raps about secrecy.
"I wish everyone could tell me exactly what they need from me / The first second they speak to me / I’m not with all the secrecy / Secretly beefin’ me behind closed doors But playin’ it peacefully for the streets to see My n—a, have some decency."
On Tuesday, fans speculated about his impending return to action when he shared a cryptic photo to his Instagram Story. The image showed a group of four dogs racing, while a cheetah, circled in red, sat behind and watched.

Who knows what's really going on. Is OBJ not 100% yet or are the Browns keeping off the field to keep him healthy so they can trade him? With OBJ it never seems to be straightforward.
