The Browns’ season-opening blowout loss has actually produced a flurry of Monday workers activity.Out is kicker Austin Seibert, who was waived Monday following an empty efficiency in which he missed his lone basket attempt and only extra-point try. In is Cody Parkey, signed to the 53-man roster from Cleveland’s practice squad to change the previous fifth-round pick just in time to prepare for Thursday night’s video game against the Bengals.Also out, at least for the rest of September, is tight end David Njoku.
Cleveland placed him on injured reserve Monday with a knee injury . Rapoport reported Njoku has an MCL sprain and need to return after three weeks on IR.The tight end took advantage of his opportunities Sunday, capturing the Browns’only goal of the
day and making an acrobatic grab over Baltimore protective back Tavon Young for a 28-yard gain.Njoku finished with three receptions for 50 yards and the goal, a great start to a season that will now satisfy an interruption.The news is a bit disappointing for Njoku, who suffered a damaged wrist and concussion in Week 2 of 2019, all however rinsing the rest of his season.
After Cleveland bought the tight end room in the offseason– signing Austin Hooper and drafting Harrison Bryant– Njoku required to show something to management in his fourth NFL season.It sounds as if he’ll get such an opportunity at some point following a strong start to 2020.
