Browns tight end David Njoku just revealed what his face looked like in the aftermath of the serious fire pit accident at his home a little more than a week ago, and it’s gruesome.
Of course, the 27-year-old appeared on the Browns injury report before their week 4 game against the Ravens … which stated he suffered injuries to his arm and face.
Njoku somehow played through the pain of the burns and actually caught 6 passes for 46 yards in a loss to Baltimore.

Prior to the game, Njoku wore a mask that fully covered his face as he walked into the stadium, meaning no one got an up-close look at the former first-round draft pick.
That changed on Wednesday when Njoku posted a selfie from his car, presumably sometime shortly after the burn.
He also shared an updated look at his face … which appears to have substantially healed.
Njoku’s turning the accident into a positive. He launched a clothing line and is donating a portion of the money from sales to the American Burn Association.
“I want to use my platform to help bring awareness to an all too common issue,” Njoku said.
“The doctors at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center were instrumental in my recovery, and I am forever grateful for their expertise and care. By working with the ABA, I hope to provide resources and support to burn survivors and their families.”
