Cleveland Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski was tight-lipped when asked about the status of his starting quarterback on Monday.
Cleveland passer Baker Mayfield, who missed the team’s Thursday night game against the Denver Broncos while recovering from a non-throwing shoulder fracture and labrum tear, did not return to practice on Monday, in what was a bonus day for the Browns.
Stefanski wasn’t willing to rule him in or out for Sunday’s game, didn’t say whether he would practice this week, and wouldn’t say if he needs to practice in order to play.
“We will see,” he answered repeatedly when questioned by the Cleveland media.
Mayfield will eventually require surgery on the shoulder, but his hope is to forestall that until the offseason and return to the lineup sooner rather than later.
But he was unable to play in Week 6 and has yet to be cleared to practice in order to face the Steelers.
