CLEVELAND (AP) Baker Mayfield had to surrender to the pain.
Cleveland's starting quarterback, who has played the past four weeks with a torn labrum in his left shoulder, will sit out Thursday's game against the Denver Broncos and backup Case Keenum will start.
"I feel very ready. I've been ready," said Keenum, who hasn't started since 2019 with Washington. "You can say, `You don't have to get ready if you stay ready' and I've been ready since I got here."
