Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku

The Cleveland Browns will likely be without one of their top young skill-position players for a foreseeable future. Tight end David Njoku exited Monday’s game against the New York Jets with that was initially described as a head injury.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media is reporting that not only did Njoku suffer a concussion, he broke his wrist. Initial estimates indicate that the third-year tight end will be out of action for a month plus.

This is a huge blow for the Browns as they begin a stretch of five consecutive games against teams that are currently 2-0, starting Sunday night against the Los Angeles Rams.

Njoku, 23, was a first-round pick of the Browns back in 2017. He recorded 56 receptions for 639 yards and four touchdowns as a sophomore last season. The Miami (F) product followed that up with a touchdown in Monday night’s win over the Jets.
