Coach Freddie Kitchens said Wednesday that Njoku (wrist) is "getting closer" to rejoining the active roster, Andrew Gribble of the Browns' official site reports.

Njoku would be eligible to play Sunday against the Bengals if activated from injured reserve, but the Browns have until Dec. 11 to make a decision on his reinstatement. The Browns will presumably observe Njoku in practices Wednesday through Friday before deciding as late as Saturday whether he's fit to play in Week 14. If Njoku remains out this weekend, Demetrius Harris (shoulder) and Ricky Seals-Jones would handle the bulk of the snaps at tight end.
