Baker Mayfield says he’s got a broken humerus along with the torn labrum in his shoulder
The speculation about the intensity of Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield’s hurt shoulder simply amped approximately another level. FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer reports that Mayfield has a fractured humerus bone in his left arm in addition to the torn labrum left wing (non-throwing) shoulder.
In addition, Glazer priced estimate Mayfield as informing him that the fractured bone is avoiding him from going back to action.
“I need that fracture to heal for me to get back out there,” Glazer quotes Mayfield as stating.
The humerus is the long bone in the arm in between the shoulder and the elbow joint. Mayfield exacerbated the shoulder injury he at first suffered in Week 2 in last Sunday’s loss to the Arizona Cardinals, landing hard on the ground with his left arm extended out. He performed his postgame interview with his left arm in a sling.
Glazer did not expose precisely where the fracture is on the humerus, however based upon what Mayfield informed him it would appear to be in the shoulder joint location.
Mayfield is out for Thursday night’s video game versus the going to Denver Broncos. Case Keenum will begin. If the fracture and bigger shoulder injury require surgical treatment, it might end Mayfield’s season.
