Baker Mayfield did not practice with his Cleveland Browns teammates on Wednesday. The starting quarterback is nursing several injuries, including a knee injury added to his ongoing left shoulder issues.

After acknowledging that he’s feeling better than he did after Sunday’s blowout loss to the New England Patriots, Mayfield let on how much he’s hurting.

“This is probably the most beat up I have been in my career, and it is not like it is one particular thing; it is multiple,” Mayfield said on Wednesday. “It is just that time of the year, and things add up. Just a couple of things after another. It is what it is.”

Mayfield is intent upon playing Sunday when the Browns host the Detroit Lions. But he did leave open the possibility that the injuries could keep him limited.

“At this point, I am just taking it one day at a time. I have plenty of time until Sunday. We will see what happens,” Mayfield told reporters.

The Browns have suffered several key injuries on offense over the last few weeks. Mayfield, Nick Chubb, Kareem Hunt, Jack Conklin and others have been in and out of the lineup in recent weeks. But Mayfield doesn’t want — or expect — any sympathy.

“It has been tough, but I do not think anybody gives a damn. There is no reason to get into that. Nobody cares. Nobody wants to feel bad for us. It is what it is. That is alright.”
