CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - A reporter who covers the Cleveland Browns has sources who say quarterback Baker Mayfield injured his shoulder last month.

19 News is working to independently confirm the possible injury.

Sources told Ian Rapoport the injury happened Sept. 19 during the Texans game, he said in a tweet.

In media availability after the Houston game, Mayfield told reporters his shoulder “kind of popped in and out.”

Mayfield was inside the medical tent for a short time during the Sept. 19 game after an attempted tackle.

According to Rapoport, the sources said Mayfield suffered a partially torn labrum in his left shoulder but does not need surgery.

The Browns took home a 14-7 win Sunday in a match against the Minnesota Vikings.

Some said Mayfield, who wore a shoulder harness, did not play a great game. He is not listed in the Week 5 injury report from the Cleveland Browns.

Mayfield is expected to play Sunday in the game against the L.A. Chargers. Watch at 4 p.m. on CBS 19.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
