AFC Notes: David Njoku, Kenny Pickett, Browns, Ravens, Steelers


Browns HC Kevin Stefanski praised TE David Njoku for playing in Week 4’s game despite suffering burns to his face and arms in a household incident. 

“The way he played was unbelievable to me with what he went through. Not just the pass game, the run game, he was the first guy picking his teammates up off the ground, it felt like every single play. He was a warrior,” Stefanski said, via ProFootballTalk. “It was impressive to watch.”
