Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield to start Sunday vs. Pittsburgh Steelers, coach Kevin Stefanski says

Marcus Spears warns Browns about the dangers they take by starting Baker Mayfield Sunday. (1:22).
BEREA, Ohio -- Baker Mayfield, the Cleveland quarterback, will face off against Steelers Sunday, Browns coach Kevin Stefanski announced Friday.

Mayfield missed last week's game against Denver Broncos because of a labrum tear in his left shoulder. He suffered it in Week 2. After a game off Mayfield stated that the inflammation in his left shoulder, which now has a fracture, was noticeably less.

Mayfield was able to take the starter's snaps in front of backup Case Keenum, and practiced all week with a shoulder harness under his shoulder pads.

Stefanski stated that Mayfield is ready to go medically. "Baker believes that he is ready to win this team's championship."

Mayfield sustained the injury to his shoulder while trying to tackle a defender following an interception.

He played through the injury. On Oct. 17, Mayfield's left shoulder was crushed by J.J. Watt, Cardinals pass-rusher. Mayfield did not miss one snap in that game. However, Mayfield was unable to play last Thursday against Broncos because of the swelling in his shoulder. Instead, Keenum was given the start and the Browns defeated Denver 17-14.

"I stated it last week: If I feel that I'm not capable of being close to 100 percent, and be able help this team, and if my situation is going to harm the team, then I'm not going." Mayfield stated Wednesday. "I think you guys understand how I feel. "I want to be out there playing."
