Nursing knee injury
Njoku won't practice Wednesday due to a knee injury, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Njoku is coming off the best game of his career in the Browns' 47-42 loss to the Chargers, when he turned in seven receptions for 149 yards and a touchdown on seven targets. He appears to have gotten banged up at some point along the way, but the Browns may just be extending him some extra maintenance, as he's one of several key contributors on the Cleveland offense who won't practice Wednesday. The Browns are set for a tough Week 6 matchup against the undefeated Cardinals.
