Browns QB Baker Mayfield isn't listed on the Week 2 injury report. It's confirmation that the wrist injury he suffered in the opener won't be a factor moving forward. Mayfield is a nice bounce-back candidate in Monday night's game against a burnable group of Jets CBs.

Browns QB Baker Mayfield left Sunday's game against the Seahawks to get an x-ray on his left hip. He was able to return but was clearly operating at less than 100% the rest of the way. We'll keep an eye on this, but Mayfield and the Browns get a well-timed Week 7 bye.

Browns HC Freddie Kitchens said Monday that QB Baker Mayfield was "good to go" after leaving the stadium Sunday with his right wrist wrapped. On Tuesday, Mayfield practiced with his team with no wrap on the hand or wrist, according to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal. Ulrich added that Mayfield was throwing the ball well. This looks like a non-issue heading into Monday night's visit to the Jets.

Browns HC Freddie Kitchens said Monday that x-rays came back clean on QB Baker Mayfield's right wrist. "We're good to go," Kitchens added. Mayfield was 1 of the bigger disappointments of Week 1. It's unclear how big a factor that wrist issue played. We'll track his practice participation this week ahead of next Monday's game against the Jets.

Browns QB Baker Mayfield left the stadium Sunday with his right wrist wrapped. An X-ray turned up negative, though, according to multiple reports. The injury is merely a bruise. It sounds like we should expect to have Mayfield available for next Monday night's visit to the Jets.

The Browns are hiring Freddie Kitchens as their HC. Kitchens took over as Cleveland's interim OC in Week 9 of this past season and immediately turned the unit around. After averaging 21.1 points and 342 total yards over the first 8 games, the Browns averaged 23.8 points and 395 yards across the last 8. QB Baker Mayfield was especially impressive under Kitchens, completing 68% of his passes, averaging 8.6 yards per attempt and tossing 19 TDs over those 8 games. This is a big step up in responsibility for Kitchens, who had never even called plays in the NFL prior to last year. But we at least like the move for the Browns offense.
