Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield has returned to practice and was spotted wearing a harness on his injured left shoulder.

Offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt shared the latest update on Mayfield’s injury.

“I think he’s feeling OK right now,” Van Pelt said prior to practice on Wednesday. “He seems to be good in meetings. He practiced yesterday a good amount and looked good. He’ll go today for sure, and then we’ll determine later in the week how he’s feeling. Obviously, it’s up to the doctors and medical staff to determine whether he’s ready to go or not.”

Mayfield’s right arm, his throwing arm, is unaffected. However, the main concern is his pain tolerance — and if he takes another hit to his damaged shoulder.

“There’s a noticeable difference in range of motion and strength,” Mayfield said on October 27. “Take it day by day and see where we are.”

The 26-year-old sustained a torn labrum last month trying to make a tackle in the game against the Houston Texans after throwing an interception. The fractured humerus occurred when he was sacked by J.J. Watt in the Arizona game on October 17.

Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry, who has been dealing with knee injuries himself, applauded Mayfield’s determination to return to the field.

“He’s been fighting to get back, trying to do everything possible, literally, to get back and it was good to see him back out there on the practice field, moving around, throwing the ball around, and still taking it day by day,” Landry said. “Obviously, it’s still an ongoing process of getting him feeling better, getting a lot of us feeling better but he’s handling it the right way. Like a pro.”

The Browns will face the Pittsburgh Steelers on October 31 at FirstEnergy Stadium.
