Browns Confirm Severity Of Tight End's Injury

The Cleveland Browns fell for the fourth straight game in Week 7 to the division rival Baltimore Ravens, bringing their season record to 2-5, a disappointing start for a team that was considered genuine playoff contenders before the 2022 NFL season began. Their starting tight end David Njoku left the game in an air cast, which had Browns fans holding their breath, but after the game, ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter reported from sources that it was an ankle sprain, and the injury isn't considered serious.

This is great news for a very talented team, who still have a shot at the NFC North, as both Baltimore and Cincinnati share first place with a 4-3 record, and if this offensive unit can get rolling with Njoku and the talented wide receiver group, there's a chance for them to come back in 2022.

Unfortunately for David, it looks like he will miss some time, but for a team with little depth at the tight end position, that's great news, as he is an integral part to this offence. Through seven weeks, Njoku has 34 catches for 418 yards and a Touchdown, and if the team is to survive until Deshaun Watson returns, they'll need him healthy, so look for updates in the coming days about the injury.
