Earlier: What started out as a great afternoon for the Cleveland Browns has turned dark. The Seahawks have rallied, and Baker Mayfield has been shaken up.
Cleveland led 20-6 in this game, but is now trailing 25-20. Mayfield, meanwhile, had to head to the locker room at one point in the third quarter.
The second-year quarterback had been getting checked out on the sideline for an apparent leg injury. It appears he needed further evaluation.
Fortunately, Mayfield has jogged back to the sideline and is presumably okay to reenter the game.
Baker just jogged back to the sideline.

We’ll keep you posted on Mayfield’s status. If he has to leave the game again, backup Garrett Gilbert would be next in line.
Cleveland badly needs a win today to even its record at 2-3. The Browns have been a disappointment through the season’s first month.
Seattle, meanwhile, is looking to move to 5-1 with a victory.
Update: It appears it is Mayfield’s hip that is giving him trouble. He’s been stretching it on the sideline.
