The status of Browns tight end David Njoku remains up in the air for Week 4 against the Ravens after he suffered facial burns on Saturday, per an official team announcement. But while his status is in question, there are still numerous questions surrounding what happened, although the team described it as a “household incident” that led to burns on his face and arm.
Njoku arrived for the team’s matchup with the Ravens, but did so while wearing a full mask, as Cleveland.com’s Hayden Grove detailed. The scene adds to looming questions about the severity of the injuries, but it does appear he at least has a chance to suit up this week.
Cleveland, 2-1 on the season, needs all the active playmakers possible, assuming Njoku is heahy enough to go. After losing running back Nick Chubb to a brutal lower leg injury, the team brought back former running back Kareem Hunt to help fill the void at the position. As for Njoku, he's caught 10-of-11 targets this season for 92 yards to start the year.
