Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield already was ruled out for Sunday’s season finale as the team is eliminated from playoff contention.
The Browns made the procedural move of placing Mayfield on injured reserve Wednesday. Mayfield originally injured his shoulder in Week 2 against the Texans and aggravated it against the Cardinals on Oct. 17.
The Browns also announced they placed linebacker Sione Takitaki on injured reserve.
They signed quarterback Nick Mullens from the practice squad to serve as Case Keenum’s backup this week.
