Baker Mayfield’s shocking revelation about shoulder injury in Browns’ win over Texans

Browns, Baker Mayfield

Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield briefly left their Week 2 game against the Houston Texans with a shoulder injury. Fortunately, he was able to return and finish the game.

It wasn’t without any hurdle, though, as Mayfield told reporters after the contest that his left shoulder “popped in and out” after attempting a tackle. He did note that he’ll be fine and that the issue is nothing serious.

Baker Mayfield sustained the injury early in the second quarter. After throwing an interception to Texans defensive back Justin Reid, he tried to tackle him only to be hit hard on his left shoulder.

Here’s the full sequence of events that led to the injury to the Browns quarterback:

Veteran backup QB Case Keenum replaced Mayfield, who went to the locker room to get his shoulder checked. However, as mentioned, it didn’t take long for the 26-year-old to return. He finished the contest with one touchdown and 213 yards on 19-of-23 pass completion. His second quarter interception was the only one he threw in the game as the Browns went on to win 31-21.

The victory is the Browns’ first of the season after falling to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 1. They’ll now prepare for a Week 3 clash against the Chicago Bears, who also saw an injury to their starting quarterback Andy Dalton.

It remains to be seen if Mayfield’s injury will bother him given the fact that it seems to have been dislocated. Nonetheless, the Browns QB is seemingly positive it won’t be an issue.
