The Browns are set to hire Kevin Stefanski as their new HC. Stefanski has spent the past 14 seasons in Minnesota under multiple coaching staffs. He took over as interim OC late in the 2018 campaign and was named OC for 2019. The Vikings ranked 16th in total yards, 10th in yards per play and 8th in points this past year. They were the league's 3rd run-heaviest offense -- although assistant coach Gary Kubiak seemingly had a lot to do with that. We'll keep an eye on Stefanski's plans for a Browns offense loaded with talent.
Browns QB Baker Mayfield has been activated from the COVID list. He'll get in a full week of practice and start in Sunday's plus matchup against the Texans.
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 (ribs) practiced all week and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll start Sunday’s game against the Bengals but is just a low-end QB2 in fantasy lineups.
Browns HC Kevin Stefanski said he pulled QB Baker Mayfield from Sunday's game in Pittsburgh because of his rib injury and that Mayfield is still the starter when healthy. We'll keep an eye on Mayfield's status this coming week. He has a much easier Week 7 draw vs. the Bengals.
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.
