Browns activate TE Njoku | National Post

The Cleveland Browns activated tight end David Njoku on Saturday, making him available to face the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday afternoon.

The Browns (5-7) host the Bengals (1-11) at 1 p.m. ET.

Njoku had been sidelined for eight games with a wrist injury sustained in Cleveland’s 23-3 victory over the New York Jets on Sept. 16. The 23-year-old Njoku caught four passes for 37 yards and a touchdown in Cleveland’s 43-13 season-opening loss to the Tennessee Titans. He did not record a catch against the Jets.

Njoku collected 56 receptions for 639 yards and four touchdowns last season. He has 92 catches for 1,062 yards and nine scores in 34 career games since the Browns selected him with the 29th overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft.

In a corresponding move, the Browns placed CB Robert Jackson (ankle) on injured reserve. He played in six games and made three tackles on special teams.
