Baker Mayfield briefly goes to locker room after turnover, returns to game

It was a quick turnaround, but Baker Mayfield might be dealing with something. It will be worth tracking the rest of the way.

Editor’s update: Mayfield finished out the game after whatever this was. He finished the game 22 of 37 for 249 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions. He also rushed four times for 35 yards and a touchdown.

The Cleveland Browns had a brief question arise as they work to come back after blowing a Week 6 lead to the Seattle Seahawks. Quarterback Baker Mayfield ran to the Browns locker room with the medical staff following Nick Chubb’s fumble. He came back to the sideline, but Garrett Gilbert was warming up for the Browns. Mayfield has since returned to the game.

Mayfield apparently came up wincing after a run and then dropped to a knee in pain after a throw, according to Pro Football Talk.

Mayfield was 17 of 29 for 230 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions before the injury. He also had three runs for 20 yards and a touchdown. The Browns trail 25-20 late in the third quarter after blowing a 20-6 early second quarter lead.
