CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield suffered a partially torn labrum in Week 2 against the Houston Texans. 

According to multiple reports Thursday, the injury will not require surgery at this time.

Mayfield suffered the injury to his left shoulder when trying to make a tackle after throwing an interception in the win over Houston.

After the game, Mayfield said his shoulder had popped out and then it was popped back in.

Since the injury, Mayfield has been wearing a harness on his non-throwing shoulder. The Browns QB has continued to say that is hasn't impacted his throwing ability.

"It's attached. I'm alright," Mayfield said in postgame press conference on Sunday. "It's my left shoulder. I throw with my right."

Despite those comments, Mayfield turned in his worst performance of the 2021 season, completing just 15 of his 33 pass attempts for 155 yards. 

For the record, the Browns have not listed Baker Mayfield on the injury report since Week 3.
