The Cleveland Browns will be without their starting tight end for a while.
David Njoku suffered a broken wrist Monday against the Jets, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, via a source. The initial expectation is Njoku, who is still seeking opinions on surgery, will be out for more than a month.
The third-year tight end suffered the injury in the first half of Cleveland's Week 2 win and exited without a reception. He caught four passes in the season opener, including a touchdown. Njoku has been backed up by veteran Demetrius Harris, as well as Pharaoh Brown and Ricky Seals-Jones.
A first-round pick in 2017, Njoku experienced a semi-breakout last year as he caught 56 balls for 639 yards and four touchdowns.
