QB - CLE - OUT
Week 7 Outlook
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports Browns QB Baker Mayfield is expected to need surgery on his torn labrum following the season.
Mayfield has already been ruled out for Thursday's Week 7 game against the Broncos. It's unclear how much time he might miss, though. He'll likely attempt to play through the injury to his non-throwing shoulder, but it'll certainly have an affect on his overall production.

Case Keenum will make a spot start on Thursday Night Football. Cleveland is without both Nick Chubb (calf) and Kareem Hunt (calf). Additionally, Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) is banged up. This is a rough spot for Keenum for to be playing.

"It's my decision. I get to say whether I play or not and that's just how it is," Mayfield told reporters on Tuesday. His left shoulder surgery reportedly isn't season-ending, but it remains to be seen how effective he'll be while playing through it. Case Keenum is the team's backup if Mayfield is forced to miss any time this year.
Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield completed 19-of-28 passes for 234 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in a 37-14 loss to the Cardinals in Week 6.
Mayfield also lost two fumbles. Even worse than the turnovers, he reinjured his troublesome left shoulder while trying to recover one of his fumbles. The veteran quarterback was spotted with his left arm in a sling after the game but he said that he will try to play through it. He doesn't have much time to heal as the Browns face the Broncos on Thursday night. Mayfield will be a QB3 in fantasy for that contest.
Browns QB Baker Mayfield told reporters he once again dislocated his shoulder during Cleveland's Week 6 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
Mayfield's left arm is in a sling, though he said he'll try and play through the injury. It's not an ideal situation for a Cleveland offense that is dealing with a plethora of injuries at the moment. We'll surely receive some updates on his Week 7 status early this week.
