US time on Tuesday, ESPN reporters reported that Brown quarterback Baker Mayfield (Baker Mayfield) will not play next week’s game against the Tigers. He will undergo surgery as soon as possible to repair the sprained lip joint of his left shoulder.
Brown coach Kevin Stefanski (Kevin Stefanski) said that the operation will be performed as soon as this week. Mayfield still has the opportunity to participate in the off-season training program.
Mayfield has been suffering from a shoulder injury since the second week and admitted that he was in poor condition after losing to the Steelers. He was sacked and killed a total of 9 times in the game.
Brown, with a current record of 7-9, has determined that he missed the playoffs, while the Tigers have locked in the top spot in the North Division of the American League. Stefansky also admitted that a shoulder injury affected Mayfield’s performance, but did not regret his decision to play with the injury.
“In this process, we have been trying to make the right decision based on the existing information.” Stefansky said, “We have been communicating with medical staff, communicating with Baker, but also based on these beliefs that he can play.”
Brown previously implemented Mayfield’s fifth-year contract option, and his contract will expire after the end of the 2022 season.
