TheCleveland Brownswill be without their starting tight end for a while.
David Njokusuffered a broken wrist Monday against theJets, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, via a source. The initial expectation is Njoku, who is still seeking opinions on surgery, will be out for more than a month.
The third-year tight end suffered the injury in the first half of Cleveland’s Week 2 win and exited without a reception. He caught four passes in the season opener, including a touchdown. Njoku, who is also in the league’s concussion protocol, has been backed up by veteranDemetrius Harris, as well asPharaoh BrownandRicky Seals-Jones.
A first-round pick in 2017, Njoku experienced a semi-breakout last year as he caught 56 balls for 639 yards and four touchdowns.
