Browns quarterback Mayfield 'probably the most beat up I've been'

Baker Mayfield says he is "probably the most beat up I've been" but still plans to play for the Cleveland Browns against the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

Mayfield has been playing through a torn labrum and also has a knee ailment on top of a shoulder issue.

He struggled mightily as the Browns were thrashed 45-7 by the New England Patriots in Week 10, completing 11 of his 21 pass attempts for 73 yards, a touchdown and an interception.

That dropped the Browns to 5-5 and last place in the AFC North. However, they are far from out of the mix in a crowded playoff picture and Mayfield has no plans on taking a week off even against the winless Lions.

Stefanski: "Baker is as tough as they come"

Asked about how he feels physically, Mayfield, who did not practice on Wednesday, said: "Pretty sore. That time of the year. One day at a time but I'll be good.

"Probably the most beat up I’ve been. Multiple things, not just one."

Head coach Kevin Stefanski added of Mayfield: "Baker is as tough as they come. He's sore. He's fighting through it."
