Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield is dealing with a fractured humerus bone in his shoulder, he confirmed to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports.

Mayfield, who also has a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder, said the fracture is preventing his rotator cuff from firing, Glazer adds.

"I need that fracture to heal for me to get back out there," said the signal-caller, who's reportedly expected to require offseason surgery in his shoulder.

The 26-year-old, who was inactive against the Denver Broncos on Thursday Night Football, hopes he'll be available in Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to Glazer.

Mayfield suffered the torn labrum in Week 2 and then re-injured the non-throwing shoulder during Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

The first overall pick in 2018, Mayfield is 3-3 this season and has tossed 1,474 yards with six touchdowns against three interceptions over six appearances.
