Cleveland Browns starting quarterback Baker Mayfield is dealing with a broken bone in addition to a torn labrum in his injured left shoulder, a source told The Associated Press on Thursday night.

“I need that fracture to heal for me to get back out there,” Mayfield said prior to Cleveland’s game against the Denver Broncos, which the Browns won 17-14.

Jay Glazer of Fox Sports confirmed the news as well via Twitter after his conversation with Mayfield.

Glazer wrote: “Breaking: Baker Mayfield tells me in addition to his torn labrum he also fractured his humerus bone (shoulder) according to a scan this week. Baker said the fracture is preventing his rotator cuff from firing,”

Backup QB Case Keenum took Mayfield’s place against Denver, ending his streak of 53 consecutive starts for the struggling Browns.

The former Texas Tech player also had his shoulder pop out of its socket twice last week in a loss to the Arizona Cardinals, worsening the condition.

A source familiar with Mayfield’s health said the 28-year-old expects to get back on the field against the Pittsburgh Steelers on October 31.
