Cleveland Browns starting quarterback Baker Mayfield is confident that he can play against the Denver Broncos this Thursday night.

“It’s my decision,” Mayfield told reporters on Tuesday. “I get to say whether I play or not and that’s just how it is,”

The 26-year-old is still dealing with a torn labrum in his left shoulder and underwent an MRI scan earlier this week after taking a hit from Cardinals’ J.J. Watt on Sunday.

“I work with my physiotherapist Dave [Matthews] and do everything I possibly can,” Mayfield said. “After that, it’s pain tolerance and wanting to be out there for my guys. It was actually completely torn. Other stuff that was frayed within it. With shoulder injuries like that, you try and stabilize it, strengthen the muscles and ligaments around it to where you feel that stability and it doesn’t have the likelihood of popping out nearly as much.”

Mayfield and the Browns are hoping for the best as they wait on a second opinion on the MRI result from the medical team.

“Obviously if I was in a physical state where I wasn’t able to play to the best of my abilities and I was hurting the team, I wouldn’t do that because I care about winning,” Mayfield said. “… Only I know how my body feels.”
