Post-game update: Browns HC Kevin Stefanski said Mayfield has a rib injury and is getting an x-ray on it, per Jake Trotter.

Update: Mayfield struggled on the drive and was spotted shaking out his hand after a defender got to him. Keep track of his status heading into the coming week.

Next drive update: Mayfield returned for the Browns next series and would appear to be good to go.

The Cleveland Browns are trying to hold on against the Indianapolis Colts, and they might have to do it without their starting quarterback. Colts defensive lineman Justin Houston landed a big hit on Baker Mayfield in the fourth quarter as the QB threw an interception. Mayfield quickly went to the medical tent for evaluation.

Case Keenum is the Browns backup quarterback. When Mayfield left the game, he had completed 21 of 36 passes for 247 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. He also had 17 yards on two scrambles.
