Quarterback Baker Mayfield has right wrist wrapped after Browns rocked by Tennessee in opener

CLEVELAND — Quarterback Baker Mayfield had his right wrist wrapped after the Browns were rocked 43-13 by Tennessee in their opener.

Mayfield appeared to get hurt Sunday when he was sacked for a safety in the first half by Cameron Wake. Following the game, Mayfield said "I'll be all right" when asked if he had gotten injured.

The second-year QB went for X-rays outside Cleveland's locker room and then left FirstEnergy Stadium with his wrist heavily taped.

The team said X-rays were negative.

Mayfield was intercepted three times in the fourth quarter, when the Titans scored 21 points and ran away from the Browns.

Mayfield completed 25 of 38 passes for 285 yards and one touchdown. He wasn't the only problem as the Browns were penalized 18 times for 182 yards.

The Browns fell to 1-19-1 in season openers and disappointed a sellout crowd revved up by an offseason roster overhaul.
