    Cleveland Browns Baker Mayfield Suffers Torn Labrum, Shoulder Fracture

    Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield told reporters Thursday that he suffered a tuberosity fracture in his left shoulder. He also endured a torn labrum, per ESPN. Mayfield added that the injury was on his non-throwing shoulder and is “preventing his rotator cuff from firing.”

    Optimistic News for the Cleveland Browns

    Great news for the Browns, Mayfield returned to practice Tuesday attempting to gear up for the Broncos. Unfortunately, he was ruled out on Wednesday, and backup Case Keenum took over.

    “I need that fracture to heal for me to get back out there,” Mayfield said shortly before their Thursday night matchup against the Denver Broncos. He emphasized that he’s hoping to return for the Browns home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, late October.

    Mayfield suffered a torn labrum early in the season; however, he reaggravated the injury this past Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. Veteran defensive end J.J. Watt drove Mayfield’s left shoulder into the dirt. He returned back to the game, after appearing seriously hurt moments after the hit.

    Here is the play, he suffered the injury:

    “If I am not able to … by 100 percent, that is where I would be out,” Mayfield told reporters. “I have to make that decision. Only I know how my body feels. If anyone questions whether I’m hindering the team and going out there injured, that’s just not right. It’s my decision. I get to say whether I am able to play or not, and that’s just how it is.”
