|After almost being cast off the roster as recently as last offseason, Cleveland inked Njoku to an eye-popping contract that made him the 5th highest paid tight end in the NFL. Lofty numbers for a player that has certainly been more bark than bite over his first five seasons. While he's flashed at times, Njoku has been hard pressed to even sniff the numbers he put up in his 2nd season when he finished with a 56-639-4 line on 88 targets. Even with the team desperate for playmakers last year, Njoku couldn't reach 40 yards in any game past week 5. The Browns certainly aren't paying Njoku for past production, so they must know something we don't. With Watson under center, Njoku makes for a sneaky TE1 play, without, he might be barely rosterable, as the talent just hasn't been able to overcome mediocre quarterback play.

FFToday's Take: Njoku picked up a knee injury in last week's game on top of a sprained ankle that he dealt with earlier in the season. In his absence, Harrison Bryant will slide back into the starter's role at tight end and be a low-upside dart throw at the position.

Won't practice Wednesday

|#Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said TE David Njoku's knee injury is different than the one he missed practice time with last week. Will work through it this week, not ruling him out for Sunday vs. #Texans. (Scott Petrak on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Njoku played 81% of the snaps last week and would be great tight end play this week should he be active. We'll monitor practice reports and have a better idea of his status late Friday afternoon.

Suffered high-ankle sprain in Week 7

FFToday's Take: Njoku's high-ankle sprain was reportedly not serious. It would appear he believes as much. With that said, high-ankle sprains tend to linger and bother an athlete all season long if they aren't given proper time to heal. In other words, Njoku is pushing the most optimistic time here. Perhaps he did suffer the most minor of high-ankle sprains and will end up being the exception, but expectations need to be down back until we see proof.
