Browns Get Bad News With Latest Baker Mayfield Injury Update

The latest on Mayfield is concerning news ahead of Thursday Night Football.
Baker Mayfield Injury
Mayfield was adamant about playing through the injury after Week 6. He's now considered TBD, however, as he's been recommended to seek a second opinion. It's certainly a cause for concern that Mayfield needs to get additional advice on how to handle his current shoulder ailment.
The fourth-year pro has had an up-and-down season so far, which is somewhat expected given his current labrum tear. Mayfield has thrown for 1,474 yards, 6 touchdowns and 3 interceptions over the first six games.
It sounds like Mayfield still has a chance to play on Thursday, but it'll depend on how his shoulder is feeling. Cleveland would be at a major disadvantage if they must face the Denver Broncos without their starting QB and both leading rushers.
The Browns are currently 3-point favorites over Denver, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
