Cleveland Browns’ QB Baker Mayfield expected to undergo shoulder surgery following 2021 season

According to NFL Network, Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield is expected to need surgery to repair the torn labrum in his left shoulder. It is believed that Mayfield could hold off on the surgery until the offseason, as long as the pain does not become unmanageable.

Mayfield tore his labrum in Week 2 and re-injured his shoulder last Sunday in the Browns’ loss to the Cardinals after taking a hard hit from J.J. Watt. He missed the first start of his career on Thursday when the Browns played the Broncos, and will have two weeks off before the Browns’ next game on October 31 against the Steelers.
