According to Lima, Njoku could end up missing “significant” time with this injury and the Browns plan to hold off on making any roster moves he gets the results.
Ian Rapoport reports that Njoku has, in fact, suffered a broken wrist and could end up missing more than a month if the initial estimate holds up.
To make matters worse, Njoku also suffered a concussion.
Njoku, 23, is a former first-round pick of the Browns back in 2017. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $9.5 contract and stands to make a base salary of $1.33 million for the 2019 season.
The Browns have a fifth-year option on Njuko to pick up in 2020.
In 2019, Njuko has appeared in two games and caught four passes for 37 yards receiving and one touchdown.
