The fourth-year signal-caller left the contest with 2:26 remaining in the third quarter after taking a hit from outside linebacker Matthew Judon on a 2nd and 10 from the Patriots' 40-yard line. Mayfield left the game to be evaluated in the team's medical tent and was replaced by backup Case Keenum, who took a pair of sacks on third and fourth down with the Browns trailing 31-7.

While Mayfield had previously been dealing with a shoulder injury throughout the 2021 campaign, he suffered a right knee injury on Sunday, according to CBS Sports sideline reporter Evan Washburn. The No. 1 pick of the 2018 NFL Draft hobbled off the field after taking the fit from Judon and was seen walking gingerly on the sideline after returning from the medical tent.

Earlier this year, Mayfield suffered a torn labrum in his left shoulder while attempting to make a tackle following an interception in Cleveland's Week 2 win over the Houston Texans. He later reaggravated the injury and suffered a fracture in the same shoulder taking a sack from J.J. Watt in the Browns' Week 6 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

The injury forced Mayfield to miss Cleveland's Week 7 win over the Denver Broncos -- the first missed game of his NFL career. He has since returned to make three consecutive starts while wearing a harness on his left shoulder to aid the injury.
