Browns say Baker Mayfield X-rays were negative
Brown's quarterback Baker Mayfield took x-rays of his ribs after beating the Colts on Sunday, but they showed nothing that would keep him out of the line-up.
The Browns announced that the X-rays were negative. The quarterback was rocked by a hit from Colt's defensive end Justin Houston and looked at in the medical side tent before returning to the game.
Before the results came back, Mayfield told reporters that he didn't intend to miss Cleveland's week six game against the Steelers.
"Oh yeah. Mom didn't solve a problem," Mayfield said of Akron Beacon Journal's Nate Ulrich.
Next week's game marks the first time Brown's defensive end Myles Garrett faces the Steelers since he hit quarterback Mason Rudolph in the head with a helmet last November. That earned him a six-game suspension and angry reactions from Pittsburgh when he accused Rudolph of using a racist bow before swinging his helmet.
That would have drawn attention to next week's game regardless of the records. The fact that the Browns are 4-1 and the Steelers 4-0 only raises the eyeballs set for the AFC North matchup.
