Man, poor Baker Mayfield took two L’s on this play. In the fourth quarter against the Eagles, Mayfield tried making something happen, but ended up throwing an interception. To make matters even worse, Mayfield’s head slammed into the body of an offensive lineman. Just brutal.

Mayfield somehow made it to the sidelines on his own, but then immediately went into the medical tent to get checked on by the team doctors.
With how serious concussions are being treated, this was the right move by the Browns. With it being a preseason game too, there’s no need to rush Baker back onto the field.
