Baker Mayfield probably hasn’t played last week. He did not see himself with a chest injury against the Steelers, completing 56 percent of his passes, taking four sacks and drawing after 42 snacks, before throwing two interceptions, including a pick-six.

According to coach Kevin Stefanski, the Brons quarterback was away from reports of injury after a “great week” of practice on Friday.

Mayfield, who was confined until Wednesday, was seen in a WKYC video on Thursday, holding his chest with his left hand after a throw. Brown listed him as a full participant on Thursday.

Stefanski is confident of the injury that Mayfield won over the Colts on October 11, no longer affecting Mayfield.

“No. She’s like a lot of people: you’re healthy but that doesn’t mean you’re 100 percent,” said Stephansky, via Marla Riden Akron Beacon Journal. “You’re still feeling it a little bit, and it can be uncomfortable.”

It is the perfect rival for Mayfield to rebound.

In a 35–30 win over the Bengals in Weeks 2, Mayfield went 16-of-23 for 219 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.

“I think he’s healthy,” Stephensky said. “He’s pushing through it. In Week 7, no one is feeling 100 percent. I have faith in him.”

Mayfield has 10 touchdowns, six interceptions, a career-low 10.6 yards per attempt and an 84.3 passer rating.
