The Browns have had three weeks to activate Njoku, but they’re getting towards the end of this timeline, so a move needs to be made in the near future or he will revert back to injured reserve.
Njoku has been out since breaking his wrist earlier in the season. The injury was projected to take a month to heal but the Browns elected to give him the full eight weeks by placing him on IR.
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, Njoku has appeared in two games and caught four passes for 37 yards receiving and one touchdown.
