Browns-Niners First Injury Report: 4 Cleveland, 1 San Fran DNPs due to injuries

Elijah Mitchell the lone 49ers player not practicing Wednesday

In a story of two teams on different trajectories, so far, in the 2023 NFL season, the Cleveland Browns and San Francisco 49ers injury reports match that disparity.

Just released at 8 PM, when we normally have the Browns much earlier in the afternoon, we already knew four players who didn’t participate for the home team on Wednesday but a couple of other names popped up as well. The Niners are much more healthy.

If you missed TE David Njoku sharing the first photos of his intense facial burns, which are keeping him out of practice, you can see those here.
