Browns' David Njoku (ankle) not ruling self out for Monday

Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku says his high-ankle sprain is feeling better every day and he hasn't ruled himself out for Week 8 against the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday night.

What It Means:

"We'll see," Njoku said on Thursday. He's reportedly expected to miss 2-5 weeks with the ankle sprain he suffered last week and Njoku isn't practicing on Thursday, so it seems unlikely that he will be able to suit up in a few days. Harrison Bryant is expected to take over as the Browns' starting tight end and there will also be more targets available for Amari Cooper and Donovan Peoples-Jones.

Through the first six games of the season, Njoku registered the highest offensive snap rate (87.6%) out of the Browns' skill players and he is second on the team with 6.0 targets per game and an 18.9% target share. numberFire's models project Bryant for 4.5 targets, 2.8 receptions, and 27.0 yards in Week 8.
