David Njoku Expected To Miss Three Weeks

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku (knee) has a sprained medial collateral ligament and is expected to miss three weeks, according to a source. The Browns put Njoku on Injured Reserve on Monday, but it looks like he'll miss the minimum time with his knee injury. The 24-year-old caught all three of his targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 loss to the Ravens. Njoku will probably remain on the waiver wire in shallow leagues, but he's worth stashing in deeper formats if he continues to have a role alongside Austin Hooper when he returns. Hooper will have TE1 upside with Njoku on the sidelines for a bit, and rookie Harrison Bryant might get mixed in some more.

Browns Place David Njoku On Injured Reserve

The Cleveland Browns placed tight end David Njoku (knee) on Injured Reserve with a knee injury on Monday. It's unclear exactly what the specifics of Njoku's knee injury are, but it sounds like he won't be out too long. He'll be forced to miss at least three weeks while on IR. He caught all three of his targets in Week 1 against the Ravens for 50 yards and a touchdown, a positive sign that he can still have some fantasy value with Austin Hooper in town. With Njoku on the shelf for at least a little while, it'll open the door for rookie Harrison Bryant to get some opportunities next to Hooper. Hooper remains the team's primary pass-catching tight end, though, and he'll be more attractive as a low-end TE1/high-end TE1 for however long Njoku is out.

David Njoku Scores TD, Leaves Early With Knee Injury

Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku had a solid game in a 38-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1. Njoku caught all three of his targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in the lopsided loss. The veteran tight end found the end zone on a one-yard pass from Baker Mayfield in the first quarter and later ripped off a 28-yard reception. He surprisingly outplayed high-profile free-agent signing Austin Hooper in the game as Hooper finished with just 12 yards on two catches. It wasn't all great for Njoku, however, as he left the game in the third quarter with a knee injury and didn't return. His status for his team's Week 2 showdown against the Cincinnati Bengals is unknown at the time. His team plays on Thursday so he doesn't have much time to get ready.
