Source: Browns hopeful Mayfield not out for ’21

BEREA, Ohio – The Cleveland Browns, at this point, do not fear quarterback Baker Mayfield‘s left shoulder injury is season-ending or will require surgery immediately, a league source told ESPN.

Mayfield, however, is still waiting on a second opinion from his own doctor. That doctor is expected to review his MRI scans later Tuesday.

Mayfield initially suffered the shoulder injury – a partially torn labrum – on Sept 19 while attempting to make a tackle after an interception. He continued to play through it, wearing a harness on the shoulder for support. But then Sunday, against the Arizona Cardinals, Mayfield reaggravated the shoulder injury.

During the third quarter, Cardinals pass rusher J.J. Watt drove Mayfield’s left shoulder into the ground, resulting in a fumble. Mayfield stayed down for several minutes and had to be helped off the field, though he didn’t miss a snap.

After the game, Mayfield, who was wearing a sling, said his shoulder had popped back out earlier on the drive during a non-contact play.

Still, Mayfield vowed to play Thursday against the Denver Broncos. The Browns are scheduled to practice Tuesday. If Mayfield can’t go, backup Case Keenum will get the start in his place.
