The Cleveland Browns lost yet another game this week, dropping to 5-7 after a 20-13 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. But as bad as losing the game was, they were almost in full-panic mode when quarterback Baker Mayfield had to leave with a hand injury.
On Monday, Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens gave an update on Mayfield. Luckily for the Browns, it’s all good.
Kitchens told the media that Mayfield won’t miss any practice with his injury.
Backup Garrett Gilbert came in briefly and only threw two passes, both of which were incomplete.
Mayfield finished the day with 196 yards, one touchdown and one interception while completing 56.3-percent of his passes.

But as relieved as the Browns may be to have a good prognosis on Mayfield, they now need him to get back on track, and soon.
Mayfield is currently completing 60-percent of his passes for 2,917 yards and 15 touchdowns. He also has 14 interceptions and five fumbles this year.
The Browns need to win out to avoid a 12th straight season without a winning record.
Can the Cleveland Browns turn things around in the final four games of the season?
