Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield says shoulder has fracture in addition to torn labrum

Baker Mayfield, Cleveland Browns quarterback, told Fox Sports that he had a tuberosity fracture and a torn labrum.
Mayfield stated that the non-throwing shoulder fracture is "preventing his rotator wrist from firing."

Mayfield stated that he needed the fracture to heal in order to be able to return to the field for Thursday's Cleveland game against Denver Broncos. He said that he hopes to be back for Cleveland's match against the Steelers Oct. 31.

Mayfield sustained a torn labrum in Week 2. However, he was unable to play in Sunday's game against Arizona. J.J. Watt, Cardinals defensive end, drove Mayfield's left side into the turf. He stayed there for several minutes before returning to the field to finish the game.

Mayfield trained Tuesday and promised to play against Denver. However, he was declared ineligible for Wednesday's game and Case Keenum was named the backup.

"If I'm not able to. Mayfield stated before Tuesday's practice that he would be at 100 percent. I have to make that choice. Only I can feel how my body feels. It's not right to question whether I'm hurting the team or going out there in pain. It is my choice. It's my decision whether or not I can play.
