CLEVELAND — Hours after the Browns ruled tight end David Njoku out for Sunday night’s game against the Rams, the team placed the starter on injured reserved.

Njoku left Thursday night’s game against the Jets with a concussion. After further evaluation, it was determined that he also suffered a broken wrist on that same play.

While it is not clear how long Njoku is expected to be out, once on the injured reserve list a player isn’t eligible to come off the list for at least eight weeks.

Njoku will not undergo surgery, according to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport.

The Browns will look to tight ends Demetrius Harris, Ricky Seals-Jones and Pharaoh Brown to fill Njoku’s void.
