Browns OC Alex Van Pelt said Baker Mayfield's shoulder injury has "definitely hindered" him this season. "It definitely shows. Hopefully next year without the harness you’ll see Baker back to normal with his throwing mechanics. Got a lot of respect for the fact he’s battled through that, we know he’s injured." Mayfield has been playing through a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder since Week 2 and fracture in his shoulder since Week 6. The Browns have downplayed the injury, but it's been a clear factor in Mayfield's regression, who's expected to have surgery after the year. Cleveland has Mayfield signed through 2022 after picking up his option last offseason and could make him play out his final year without a new contract.

Ben Roethlisberger suggested that Week 17 against the Cleveland Browns will likely be his final game at Heinz Field. Roethlisberger is usually one to tease his retirement in hopes of a coronation at the end of every year but all signs point towards Monday night truly being the end of the 39-year-old's career at Heinz Field. Expect a standing applause from the crowd in Pittsburgh no matter the final score. Roethlisberger's last game will take place in Baltimore in Week 18.
