BEREA, Ohio (WKBN) – In addition to losing Sunday’s game in Baltimore, the Browns also lost a pair of starters in the setback.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that tight end David Njoku suffered a high-ankle sprain. He is expected to miss two to five weeks of action.
This season, Njoku has piled up 34 receptions for 418 yards and a touchdown.
Fellow tight-end Pharaoh Brown is currently in concussion protocol.
In addition, starting linebacker Jacob Phillips suffered a pec injury. Head Coach Kevin Stefanski said on Monday that the injury is likely season-ending. Phillips had taken over as the starter following the season-ending injury to veteran linebacker Anthony Walker.
Newly-acquired Deion Jones now assumes the role of starting middle linebacker.
