Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield suffered a bruised right hand in his team’s 20-13 loss to the Steelers on Sunday.
Mayfield smacked it against the facemask of Pittsburgh linebacker Bud Dupree just before halftime and played the second half with his throwing hand in a protective glove.
Mayfield completed 18 of 32 passes for 196 yards with a touchdown and an interception. He was 8 of 15 for 98 yards after getting hurt, his final throw a wayward toss in the direction of Jarvis Landry that Steelers cornerback and former Brown Joe Haden picked off with 1:06 remaining.
Mayfield declined to blame the injury, which the Browns described as a bruise, as a reason behind his so-so second half.
Also for the Browns, cornerback Greedy Williams left in the second half with a shoulder injury and cornerback Robert Jackson left in the first quarter with an ankle injury and did not return.
Panthers tight end Greg Olsen entered the concussion protocol after taking a helmet-to-helmet hit from Redskins linebacker Ryan Anderson, who was ejected after delivering the hit.
Redskins returner Trey Quinn left his team’s 29-21 win in the second quarter with a concussion after taking a shot to the head from DeAndrew White while going low to field a punt. Quinn didn’t call for a fair catch, but White was flagged for a helmet-to-helmet hit. Right tackle Morgan Moses left with a back injury and linebacker Montez Sweat injured his quadriceps.
Jets safety Jamal Adams was wearing a walking boot on his left foot after the game at Cincinnati. He said he was injured on the first series but played through it. He wasn’t sure how long he might be sidelined.
Broncos right guard Ron Leary left his team’s 23-20 win over the Chargers with a concussion in the fourth quarter. Derek Wolfe went out after injuring an elbow with 2:22 remaining.
