Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield dismissed the idea that his injured left shoulder affected his underperformance in his final game.
Mayfield admitted Wednesday he was wearing a harness on his non-throwing shoulder when Browns beat the Minnesota Vikings 14-7 on Sunday. He made 15 of 33 passes at 155 yards, more than two weeks away from his left shoulder popping out while attempting a tackle after an interception against the Houston Texans.
When asked if the harness might affect its accuracy, Mayfield replied, “It shouldn’t be.”
Mayfield, 26, described his footwork as clean and compares poorly with the Vikings.
“You fucking gotta play,” he said. “As simple as that.”
Mayfield threw 935 yards this season in two touchdowns and two intercepts for the Browns (3-1), who will visit the Los Angeles Chargers (3-1) on Sunday.
