The Browns will be without running back Nick Chubb for a few weeks after he injured his MCL in Sunday’s win over the Cowboys, but they expect to have another member of their offense back on the practice field this week.

Tight end David Njoku is eligible to come off of injured reserve after missing three games with a knee injury and head coach Kevin Stefanski indicated that the team would have him back on the practice field Wednesday.

“I think we will, yes,” Stefanski said, via

Njoku caught three passes for 50 yards and a touchdown in the season-opening loss to the Ravens. Austin Hooper and Harrison Bryant have combined to catch 16 passes for 135 yards and two touchdowns in three games without Njoku.

  1. From a personnel perspective, its always better to have the full strength of roster and a beloved teammate back. Welcome back to the huddle, David! From a purely football perspective this is good news, but not world beating. Hooper is better, and Bryant has stepped up in Njoku’s absence, so we’ve seen little drop-off in production from the position.

  2. Then Browns GM Sashi Brown traded back into the first round ahead of Pittsburgh to draft TJ Watt…… Oops they took David Njoku instead. Now you know the rest of the story.

  3. Browns have two TE’s that can catch better than Njoku, I hope he conforms to his blocking assignments…!!!

  4. Until Njoku learns to block he’ll have limited usefulness in this O. There’s plenty of people who can catch and do things after the catch better than he at this point.
