Friday PM update: Njoku has been ruled out as expected. Harrison Bryant will get the start and has some deep league appeal in a good matchup.

Friday update: Njoku wasn’t practicing on Friday, per Tom Withers. The writing appears to be on the wall for Njoku this week against the Texans. Harrison Bryant should get the TE 1 reps on Sunday.
