CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku has been designated for return after suffering a knee injury during the Baltimore Ravens game.

Njoku had three receptions for 50 yards and scored a touchdown during the season opener.

He left the game with a knee injury and was placed on injured reserve the following day.

Normally, players who are placed on IR must miss a minimum of six weeks worth of practice and eight weeks worth of games. Njoku was able to return from IR after three weeks thanks to new rules this season.

Teams are also allowed to return an unlimited number of players from IR this season when normally they are limited to two players per year.

The Browns also moved wide receiver Taywan Taylor from the practice squad to the active roster.

Taylor was acquired by the Browns in 2019 after a trade with the Tennessee Titans.
