David Njoku Drops Mask Reveals Severity Of Facial Burns After Fire Pit Accident

David Njoku, a tight end for the Cleveland Browns, disclosed on Wednesday that a home fire pit accident left him with severe facial burns. He now wants to collect money for burn victims and research.

The 27-year-old New Jersey native developed a clothing company, “Withstand,” to raise those monies, according to remarks made by the American Burn Association and on his own social media.

“I want to use my platform to help bring awareness to an all too common issue and shed some positive light on an otherwise unfortunate incident,” Njoku said.

Njoku was involved in an accident on September 29 in Cleveland, but two days later, in Week 4, he played for the Browns against the Baltimore Ravens, according to Brandon Austin, co-founder of the company Millions, which promotes the player’s stuff.

Njoku arrived at the venue for that game on October 1 using a full mask over his face.

Amari Cooper, a wide receiver for the Browns, expressed his admiration for his friend for persevering despite what must have been tremendous suffering.

“It was crazy. I was just like, how the heck did he do this?” Cooper told reporters Thursday. “Just putting the helmet on … imagine getting tackled, your helmet (is) always coming down, you’re sweating, it was a lot, it was lot he had to deal with. I commend him for that.”

In a later photo without the mask, Njoku may be seen with severe burns.

T-shirts with Njoku attending the Ravens-Browns game while wearing that mask are part of the fundraising merchandise.

“I understand firsthand how suddenly life can change due to a burn injury,” Njoku said in a statement released by the American Burn Association.

The footballer expressed gratitude to the medical personnel at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, saying they were “instrumental in my recovery, and I am forever grateful for their expertise and care.”

Following a bye last week, the Browns will play at home on Sunday against the unbeaten San Francisco 49ers.

“We are grateful to have a dedicated athlete like David Njoku show support as we work to bring attention to the critical issues surrounding burn injuries,” American Burn Association Chief Executive Kimberly Hoarle said.

“His willingness to turn a personal setback into an opportunity for positive change is truly commendable. Together, we hope to increase burn prevention efforts and make a lasting impact on burn survivors and their families.”
