CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns made several roster moves on Monday, including placing tight end David Njoku on injured reserve following a knee injury he sustained during Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

The knee injury is apparently a sprained MCL, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Njoku will be able to return from IR, if healthy, after three weeks with the new rules this season. Normally, players who are placed on IR must miss a minimum of six weeks worth of practice and eight weeks worth of games. 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 tight end left Sunday's game with a knee injury and did not return. Prior to leaving the game, Njoku impressed with three receptions for 50 yards and a touchdown.

Last season, Njoku was placed on IR after breaking his wrist in the Browns Week 2 matchup against the New York Jets.

The Browns made additional roster moves Monday, waiving kicker Austin Seibert and signing Cody Parkey to the active roster.
