Baker Mayfield's been thrown into the mix for the Browns.

No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft replaced Tyrod Taylor after Cleveland's
starting quarterback sustained a concussion in the first half of Thursday
night's game against the New York Jets. Taylor was slow getting up after being
sacked for the third time and after being evaluated in the medical
tent ,
was taken to the locker room for treatment.At halftime, the Browns said Taylor
has a head injury and will not return.Mayfield, who was supposed to spend his
first season learning behind Taylor, completed a 14-yard pass on his first throw
and then fired 17-yarder on his second as Browns fans roared for the Heisman
Trophy winner.Mayfield went 3 of 4 for 47 yards on his first drive, which ended
with newly signed rookie Greg Joseph kicking a 45-yard field goal to pull with
the Browns within 14-3.Cleveland's plan was to have Mayfield watch and learn
behind Taylor, but the injury could change things dramatically.Taylor was
ineffective during his time on the field, going 4 of 14 for 19 yards. The Browns
traded for Taylor in March to serve as a mentor for their young
quarterback.Mayfield's debut is giving fans a chance to see the top two QBs
taken in the draft. The Browns opened to take Mayfield over Darnold Cleveland

Browns’ Week 3 preseason game against the Philadelphia

mediocre day for the quarterbacks, who faced either faster pressure than they
are used to, or had no where to go with the football. Fortunately, it appears
that both Tyrod Taylor and Baler Mayfield survived their injury scares; can you
imagine if Cleveland was down to Drew Stanton just like that?According to Pro
Football Focus Cleveland Browns
, Mayfield was accurate when he was kept clean:When kept
clean, Mayfield was 7-of-7 for 56 yards and a 100.0 passer rating. On his eight
pressured dropbacks, however, Mayfield was just 1-of-5 passing for 20 yards,
with an interception, two throwaways, two sacks Cleveland

Hyde showed off in a major way. He has no doubt established himself as the top

Jarvis Landry, who was looking to the official one too many times for a flag
after bumping into an Eagles defender. He only caught 30% of the passes that

and should be assured a roster spot at this point.Antonio Callaway was inactive
