Browns QB Baker Mayfield is considering sitting out Sunday's finale vs. the Bengals. He's dealt with a plethora of injuries this season, including a torn labrum in his left shoulder that will require surgery this offseason. "I'm an extremely competitive guy," Mayfield said after taking 9 sacks in Monday night's loss to the Steelers. "Now it's time for me to start looking at what's in the best interest of me and my health. ... Right now, I'm pretty damn beat up, to be honest with you. There's no way around it." QB Case Keenum figures to start for Cleveland this weekend if Mayfield doesn't.

Browns QBs Baker Mayfield and Case Keenum have been activated from the COVID list. Mayfield should start Saturday's game vs. the Packers -- but will do so without having practiced all week. He's just a low-end QB2 in what figures to be a run-heavy attack from the Browns.

Browns QB Baker Mayfield, QB Case Keenum, WR Jarvis Landry and TE Austin Hooper will not be activated from the COVID list for tonight's game vs. the Raiders, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. So QB Nick Mullens will get the start for Cleveland. His top 2 WRs figure to be Donovan Peoples-Jones and Rashard Higgins. David Njoku should top the TE depth chart. We'll see if TE Harrison Bryant (ankle) is able to play. Expect a run-heavy game plan featuring Nick Chubb from the Browns.

The Raiders at Browns game originally scheduled to kick off at 4:30 pm ET on Saturday is being moved to Monday due to the rash of COVID positives on the Browns, according to insider Josina Anderson. Even that is probably still subject to change based on more positive COVID tests in Cleveland. We'll see if any of the Browns currently on the COVID list -- namely Baker Mayfield, Case Keenum, Jarvis Landry and Austin Hooper -- are activated before Monday. But, as of now, we'd still plan on not having those guys in Week 15 fantasy lineups.

Update: Raiders-Browns will kick off at 5 pm ET on Monday, per Fox Sports' Jay Glazer.

Browns QB Case Keenum has joined QB Baker Mayfield on the COVID list. That leaves QB Nick Mullens to start Saturday's game vs. the Raiders. Mullens has been on the practice squad since September 1, so he at least has some familiarity with the offense. Mullens made 8 starts for the 49ers between 2018 and 2020 and owns a career 64.5% completion rate, 7.9 yards-per-attempt average and 25 TDs vs. 22 INTs. He's probably not a significant downgrade from Keenum. We're still expecting a run-heavy attack from Cleveland on Saturday.

Browns QB Baker Mayfield landed on the COVID list Tuesday after a positive test. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that "there are more positive tests with more Cleveland players," indicating that more names will be added today. The Browns had already placed 8 players on the list Monday. We'll see whether the outbreak winds up postponing Saturday's game against the Raiders -- which is in Cleveland. If it doesn't, then Mayfield looks likely to miss the game. Case Keenum would start in his place.

Browns QB Baker Mayfield suffered a knee injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game vs. New England. He's officially questionable to return, but QB Case Keenum is now in the game. We'll update Mayfield's status when we know more.

Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reports that Browns QB Baker Mayfield has a fractured humerus bone in his left shoulder, in addition to the torn labrum. He needs that fracture to heal before he'll be cleared to play. Mayfield told Glazer that he's "hoping" to return next week, but that feels unlikely. We'll keep you updated on the situation.

The forecast for tonight's Broncos-Browns game calls for sustained winds up to 20 mph and gusts around 30 mph. That's enough to impact some longer throws and kicks -- and another reason to expect this to be a low-scoring game.

Browns HC Kevin Stefanski said Wednesday that QB Baker Mayfield (shoulder) is out for Thursday night's game vs. the Broncos and that QB Case Keenum will get the start. "Baker obviously wants to be out there but just couldn’t make it on a short week," Stefanski said. “We know he will continue to do everything in his power to return as quickly as possible." We'll see if Mayfield can make it back for Week 8. Keenum, meanwhile, will make his 1st start since Week 17 of the 2019 season. The 33-year-old has 62 career starts under his belt and sports a 62.3% completion rate, 6.9 yards-per-attempt average and 75 TDs vs. 47 INTs. Keenum is a capable backup but still a downgrade from Mayfield.

Browns QB Baker Mayfield appeared to injure his left arm while trying to make a tackle on an INT in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Texans. Stay tuned for an update. QB Case Keenum is Cleveland's backup.

Update: Mayfield returned on the next series.

The Browns have placed QB Baker Mayfield on the COVID list. We don't yet know whether he tested positive for the virus or came in contact with someone who did. Mayfield has a chance to be cleared in time for next weekend's game against the Texans if he doesn't have a positive test between now and then. If Mayfield is out for that one, Cleveland would turn to QB Case Keenum.

Update: NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that Mayfield came in contact with a COVID-positive individual. So he could be cleared as soon as Wednesday if he tests negative.

Browns QB Baker Mayfield was pulled late in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game in Pittsburgh. No word yet on whether he's hurt or benched. Mayfield entered this one dealing with a rib injury and struggled mightily, completing 10 of 18 passes for 119 yards, 1 TD and 2 INTs. He was sacked 4 times. QB Case Keenum is in for Cleveland.

The Browns agreed to a 3-year, $18 million deal with QB Case Keenum on Monday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The deal includes $10 million guaranteed and likely locks Keenum in as Baker Mayfield's backup for at least the next couple of seasons. Keenum played for new Cleveland HC Kevin Stefanski in Minnesota in 2017, when Stefanski served as the Vikings' QBs coach.

Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins (ankle) is out for Sunday's finale against the Cowboys, HC Bill Callahan said. Washington will turn back to QB Case Keenum, who has tossed multiple scores in 4 of 5 full games this season. That includes a 221-2-0 passing line vs. Dallas. Keenum will be on the QB2 and DFS radar for Week 17.

Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins is believed to have suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Giants, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The rookie is undergoing additional testing. If that confirms this initial diagnosis, he won't play in Sunday's finale against the Cowboys. That'd put Case Keenum back under center for the 'Skins.

Redskins QB Case Keenum sustained a concussion in the 1st half of Thursday night's game in Minnesota. Rookie QB Dwayne Haskins will be under center for the final 30 minutes. We'll track Keenum's progress through the protocol. It's his 2nd documented concussion.

Redskins QB Case Keenum is expected to start Sunday's game against the Dolphins, "assuming his foot injury allows him," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Keenum actually ranked 11th among QBs in fantasy points over the season's first 3 weeks and now draws a Miami squad sitting 30th in adjusted fantasy points allowed to QBs. But we'd still consider Keenum more of a QB2 option than a QB1 spot starter.

2:09pm EDT 9/29/19

Redskins QB Case Keenum was benched in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Giants after completing 6 of 11 passes for 37 yards and an INT. Rookie QB Dwayne Haskins has entered for Washington and figures to be under center the rest of today -- and probably the rest of the season.

Redskins QB Case Keenum (foot) isn’t listed on the final Week 4 injury report after putting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. He’ll start this weekend’s game against the Giants. There’s upside in that plus matchup — but Keenum also comes with risk after his 3-INT Week 3. His stock will take a hit if WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring) isn’t able to play.
