  Baker Mayfield reportedly suffered torn labrum during Week 2 tackle vs. Texans Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield suffered a partially torn labrum when he attempted a tackle after throwing an interception in Week 2, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported on Thursday. The left shoulder injury will reportedly not require immediate surgery and Mayfield will continue on for the Browns. #Browns QB Baker Mayfield, who has been wearing a shoulder harness to play, suffered a partially torn labrum in his left shoulder on Sept 19 vs the #Texans, sources say. No surgery needed as of now. He was listed on the report after the injury and hasn’t missed a practice snap.

Cleveland (AP) -- Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield will sit out Thursday's game against the Denver Broncos with a painful left shoulder injury and backup Case Keenum will start. Cleveland announced the quarterback switch on Wednesday, ending speculation about whether Mayfield would try to push through an injury to his non-throwing shoulder that he suffered last month and has worsened in recent weeks.

Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield has been dealing with a shoulder injury since Week 2 against the Houston Texans. Mayfield was said to have partially torn the labrum in his left shoulder (non-throwing), but just this week it was reported that he has a complete tear of the labrum. With a short week to prepare for Thursday night's AFC matchup against the Denver Broncos, the Cleveland Browns announced Wednesday morning that there just isn't enough time for Mayfield to be prepared to play. This will break Mayfield 's streak of playing 51 consecutive games since his rookie season in

Baker Mayfield has made 51 consecutive starts for the Browns. That streak will come to an end on Thursday night.

The Cleveland quarterback will not be able to play against the Broncos on a short week. Mayfield has been dealing with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder for most of the season, and he aggravated in Cleveland's 34-17 loss against the Cardinals in Week 6.

Mayfield didn't miss any time during that game. He was pulled late with the Browns trailing in favor of Case Keenum, but that was largely an effort to protect him from further injury. However, the damage has already been done.

The silver lining is that despite Mayfield's rough-sounding injury, he doesn't appear to be in danger of missing too much time. The 3-3 Browns will be without him this week, and he may be questionable moving forward, but all he's guaranteed to miss right now is Thursday's game.

Injury timeline , return date , latest updates on Browns wide receiver. How long will Odell Beckham Jr. be out ? Beckham is out for the remainder of the 2020 NFL season after tearing the ACL in his left knee in Week 7 against the Bengals (Oct. 25). It's an injury that's often given a 12-month timeline but occasionally sees players beat that by a few months, so Beckham's probably got an outside chance of returning for Week 1 in 2021.

Here's the latest on Mayfield's injury, and when you can expect to see him back for the Browns.

How long will Baker Mayfield be out?

The Browns haven't put Mayfield on Injured Reserve. That means that the team is planning on him missing fewer than three games, so there's a possibility he could return to action in Weeks 8 or 9.

Mayfield said earlier in the week that he planned on playing in Week 7 before the Browns ruled him out on Wednesday. Browns coach Kevin Stefanski praised Mayfield for his effort and attempt to return to the field.

“Baker fought really hard to play, he’s a competitor and obviously wants to be out there but just couldn’t make it on a short week," Stefanski said, per the Browns' official website. "We know he will continue to do everything in his power to return as quickly as possible.”

  With Baker Mayfield banged up, are Browns better off with Case Keenum? Whenever the health of a starter at any position dips below 100 percent, the team must ask itself when and if it makes more sense to go with a backup who has no injuries over the starter who does. In Cleveland, given the recent performances of quarterback Baker Mayfield, who suffered a left shoulder injury [more]In Cleveland, given the recent performances of quarterback Baker Mayfield, who suffered a left shoulder injury in Week Two and another in Week Six, it’s fair to ask whether the team is currently better off with Case Keenum under center.

As the Cleveland Browns announced Baker Mayfield has officially been ruled out for Week 7 against the Denver Broncos, the starting quarterback also revealed his injured shoulder is worse off than previously reported. We know he will continue to do everything in his power to return as quickly as possible," Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said in a statement Wednesday, via ESPN. Mayfield 's absence means Case Keenum will get the start versus the Broncos on Sunday. Keenum has completed 6-of-13 passes for 52 yards through four games as Mayfield 's backup dating back to last season.

Stefanski didn't rule out Mayfield playing in Week 8 and even implied that Mayfield might have had a chance to play this week if the team wasn't playing on Thursday. As such, it seems like the plan is for Mayfield to just miss one or maybe two games. His status will depend on how he practices next week, but if he feels good, he will push to play.

“I think whenever we decide to give me some of these reps and throw the pads on and simulate these throws, these game throws. If I’m not able to do and be 100 percent, that’s where I’d be at," Mayfield said, per the AP.

"I have to make that decision. Only I know how my body feels. And if anyone questions whether I’m hindering the team in going out there injured, that’s just not right. so it’s my decision, I get to say whether I’m able to play or not, and that’s just how it is."

  What starting Case Keenum means for the Browns' passing offense Baker Mayfield's shoulder injury means he won't play in Week 7 for the Cleveland Browns. Fortunately for them, head coach Kevin Stefanski has a backup plan. The Browns signed Case Keenum to a three-year, $18 million contract in 2020 that made him…The Browns signed Case Keenum to a three-year, $18 million contract in 2020 that made him the league’s third-highest paid backup quarterback. The move reunited him with Stefanski, who helped craft the best season of the journeyman’s career as Minnesota Vikings’ quarterbacks coach in 2017. That fall, the Jeff Fisher exile came off the bench to lead the Vikes to a 12-3 record in games where he threw at least 20 passes.

The Cleveland Browns fell to the Arizona Cardinals 37-14 on Sunday and subsequently listed 20 — yes, 20 — players on their injury report Monday ahead of Thursday's prime- time matchup against the Denver Broncos, a showdown between a pair of 3-3 clubs. Most worrisome among Cleveland's injury woes is that quarterback Baker Mayfield appeared to re-dislocate his left (non-throwing) shoulder versus Arizona, a setback that reportedly put his season in jeopardy as recently as Monday evening. © Jeff Lange / USA TODAY NETWORK Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield .

Despite Mayfield committing to playing through the injury , head coach Kevin Stefanski didn't commit to him as the starter. The team was also waiting for a second opinion on Mayfield 's shoulder. The writing may have been on the wall later in the day. Keenum and Nick Mullens took all the throws during the portion of practice that was open to the media. " Baker fought really hard to play, he's a competitor and obviously wants to be out there but just couldn't make it on a short week. We know he will continue to do everything in his power to return as quickly as possible."

Mayfield was tripped up by J.J. Watt while scrambling to his left in an effort to complete a pass or scramble for a first down. Mayfield was in pain after the play and Browns medical staff tended to his injury on the field.

Despite the injury, Mayfield was able to return to the game, but he didn't finish it. He was replaced by Case Keenum late in Cleveland's 34-17 loss against Arizona.

Mayfield didn't practice ahead of the Browns' Thursday night game against the Broncos in Week 7. He said his shoulder "feels like s—" after the loss to the Cardinals as a result of the labrum injury. He also explained that the labrum is "completely torn" and was in worse shape after Week 6 than it was earlier in the season.
