Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield took a big shot that forced him to leave Sunday’s game versus the Patriots.

After the game, Mayfield was asked if he thinks he’ll be a go for next week’s matchup against the Detroit Lions.

The 26-year-old QB didn’t mince words when asked about his status for Week 11.

“I’ve got to find a way to get as healthy as possible. Pretty beat up right now. We’ll see. Awkward landing.”

The quote comes via the excellent Mary Kay Cabot.

One thing that can’t be questioned about the Browns’ fourth year QB is his toughness. Mayfield has battled through a left shoulder separation, torn labrum, tuberosity fracture, and now a knee issue.

Just when it looked like things couldn’t get any worse for Texas football, they did. After an embarrassing overtime loss to the Kansas Jayhawks on Saturday, Texas coach Steve Sarkisian had more bad news to share.

According to Sark, 1,000-yard running back Bijan Robinson is out for the year after dislocating his elbow.

In many ways, the sophomore star was the Longhorns offense.

Robinson recorded 1,127 yards on 195 carries for 11 touchdowns this season. The 6-foot, 214-pound back also added 26 catches, almost 300 yards and four scores in the passing game.

Texas’ loss to Kansas marked its fifth-straight. That’s the longest Longhorns losing streak since 1956.

The ugly 57-56 OT loss came to a head when Texas found itself down 35-14 at the half.

UT has two more chances to attempt to finish with a winning record this year.

The Denver Nuggets will be without Michael Porter Jr. for the “foreseeable future.”

Nuggets head coach Michael Malone said Monday night that Porter is dealing with a back injury he suffered on Saturday against the Houston Rockets, and that he has no idea when he’ll return.

“This is a process where we’re being very cautious, talking to doctors, getting imaging all that kind of stuff,” Malone said, via The Athletic.

“Michael could be back in a week. It could be more than that. I don’t know. When I say foreseeable future, I don’t really know what that means. I just know he’s not playing tonight.”
