The tight end, 27, was listed as questionable on the report "after sustaining burn injuries to his face and arm during a household accident," according to an update on the team's website on Saturday.

However, Njoku hinted in a post on X Saturday afternoon that he would be fit to play on Sunday.

"The flesh is weak. See u tomorrow #DawgPound," he wrote, referencing the team's nickname.

Njoku, a 2017 draft pick, has had a strong season so far, with 10 catches for 92 yards. He's coming off a career high in 2022 with 58 receptions for 628 yards and four touchdowns.

Earlier this week, coach Kevin Stefanski said Njoku has been a key contributor through the season's first three games.

“He’s made a huge impact for us already,” Stefanski said, according to the Associated Press. “He’s very close to why we’re having success. He gets a ton of attention from defenses in the pass game. He does a great job competing in the run game."

“I can think back to a few plays in the last few weeks that are only having success because he’s at the point of attack. So he’s a very, very complete tight end,” he added.

The Browns are scheduled to play the Ravens at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday at the Cleveland Browns Stadium.
