ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Browns TE David Njoku is dealing with more than just a concussion. He also suffered a wrist injury that might require surgery. Njoku is reportedly collecting medical opinions now before deciding his next step. At the least, we should expect him to miss Week 3. And you should start looking into longer-term options if Njoku is your guy.

Update: Insider Mary Kay Cabot reports that Njoku has a broken wrist. We're still waiting for a rehab timeline, but he'll miss multiple games. That leaves Demetrius Harris, who goes 6'7 and 235 pounds with 4.5 speed, as Cleveland's top TE. He's an intriguing add in deep and TE-premium fantasy leagues.

Browns TE David Njoku has been placed on IR with his broken wrist. That knocks him out for at least the next 8 weeks. Njoku can be dropped in fantasy leagues without an IR spot. Demetrius Harris should get the 1st shot to step in as Cleveland's lead pass-catching TE and is at least worth an add in FFPC leagues. TE Ricky Seals-Jones is also on the Browns' roster.

Browns TE David Njoku (concussion) didn't practice on Wednesday. With just 6 days to get cleared after Monday night's concussion, Njoku is in real danger of missing Sunday night's game against the Rams.

Browns TE David Njoku left in the 1st quarter of the game against the Jets after being upended while going up for a pass and landing on the side of his head and neck. Njoku is reportedly being evaluated or a concussion and is questionable to return. We'll confirm his status once they're done testing him.

Browns TE David Njoku (knee, ribs) is active for today’s game against the Falcons. The injuries add some risk to his outlook, but Njoku remains safely inside TE1 territory in the Week 10 Rankings.

The Browns expect TE David Njoku to play against the Falcons today, despite knee and rib injuries that have him questionable. That's barring a setback to either issue in pregame, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We'll confirm Njoku's status when inactives come out later this morning.
