The Cleveland Browns offered a couple of major surprises about their roster, including news that a starter sustained household burn injuries on Saturday ahead of their Week 4 contest against the Baltimore Ravens.
The Browns listed Deshaun Watson as questionable to play in Week 4 due to a shoulder injury. Watson had been limited in practices this week due to the injury. If Watson cannot play, rookie quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson would get the nod.
Cleveland Browns: TE David Njoku sustained burn injuries
According to Ian Rapoport with the NFL Network, the Browns elevated another quarterback, PJ Walker, to the roster, in case Watson cannot play. That’s a critical elevation with Watson’s questionable status. Tight end David Njoku is questionable due to burn injuries he sustained in a household incident.
