Browns’ Njoku questionable for Week 4 due to burn injuries from household accident
Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku was added to the injury report on Saturday and is questionable to play Week 4 against the Baltimore Ravens after sustaining burn injuries to his face and arm during a household accident, the team announced.
The incident occurred while Njoku was lighting a firepit in his backyard, according to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com.
Njoku’s agent addressed the situation Saturday on social media, saying the 27-year-old is fine.

Njoku appeared in Cleveland’s first three games this season, catching 10 passes for 92 yards. The Miami product is in his seventh campaign with the Browns, who drafted him 29th overall in 2017. He’s amassed 2,474 yards and 19 touchdowns on 216 receptions in 82 career appearances.
If Njoku can’t play Sunday, Harrison Bryant will presumably be the team’s No. 1 tight end. Bryant has been targeted only four times in 2023, catching two passes for five yards and one touchdown.
Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson is also listed as questionable for the AFC North clash against the Ravens due to a shoulder injury.
