David Njoku has missed the last 10 games with a wrist injury.
Njoku could play for for the first time since injuring his wrist during the 23-3 win over the New York Jets in Week 2.
The Browns are expected to activate Njoku for Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals, according to multiple media reports.

“They told me, that’s the plan,” Njoku told ESPN.
Head coach Freddie Kitchens said Njoku is “healthy and ready to go,” but Cleveland has not decided whether to activate him from injured reserve.
The Browns have until Dec. 11 to activate Njoku for the season.
The New York Times estimates the Browns have about a 4-percent chance of making the playoffs this season.
The team’s final decision on whether Njoku is activated against the Bengals is expected before 4 p.m. ET Saturday, which is the deadline to activate players designated to return from injured reserve for Sunday’s games.
Njoku returned to full-contact practice on Nov. 20.
The third-year tight end had four receptions for 37 yards and a touchdown this season before his injury.
Last season, Njoku caught 56 passes for 639 yards and four touchdowns.
