It was a long day on Sunday for Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield.
Mayfield took five sacks from the Tennessee Titans as he tried to survive behind a poor Browns offensive line that was weakened further by the ejection of left tackle Greg Robinson and an injury to Robinson’s backup, Kendall Lamm.
If that wasn’t bad enough, Mayfield had X-rays taken of his right arm following the game, according to Tom Withers of The Associated Press:

And if that wasn’t enough, Mayfield was later spotted leaving FirstEnergy Stadium with a soft wrap on his right wrist:

Mayfield took a proper pounding during Cleveland’s 43-13 loss and was visibly in pain following a sack that resulted in a safety near the end of the first half.
Mayfield - who said he will “be all right,” according to Withers - finished the game 25-of-38 for 285 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions.
While the Browns announced after the game that the X-rays came back negative, if they don’t do something about the offensive line, this is going to be a long year for Mayfield.
