Someone tell Miller that's not much of a prediction. The 4th string tackle or a DLinemen trying to play tackle. Might as well have said he thinks it will be dark out in Cleveland when the game starts.

Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield will not play Thursday night against the Broncos, the team announced Wednesday. 

Case Keenum will start in place of Mayfield. 

Mayfield had said Wednesday that he expected to play despite dealing with a torn labrum in his left shoulder. But the team ruled him out one day later.

Mayfield underwent an MRI earlier this week on his left shoulder after re-injuring it on Sunday against the Cardinals when taking a hit by J.J. Watt. 

It was initially reported that Mayfield suffered a partially torn labrum in his left shoulder in Week 2. But Mayfield said Tuesday that it was a fully torn labrum.

Keenum, 33, is in his second year with the franchise. He has appeared in two games this season, but has thrown just three passes.

Mayfield had not missed a game in his professional career. On the season, he has thrown for 1,474 yards and tossed six touchdowns and three interceptions. 

Cleveland will also be without starting running backs Kareem Hunt and Nick Chubb. Both are dealing with calf injuries.

Cleveland enters Thursday Night Football 3-3 and tied for third place in the AFC North.

IF they get Chubb back and the OL line together, they could still make a run; the rest of schedule is pretty dang soft (other than having to play Balt. twice).

Hopefully they can eek out a win vs Denver, then get healthier in the week and a half they get off before Pittsburgh. 

Because this schedule is no walk-in-the-park. Detroit is about the only dud the Browns play from here out (New England?)

Captain Check Down will need a lot of help. But you KNOW what? Our team can give it to him. It's time for us to make some plays, get a few bounces rolled our way, and get a defensive TD or some shit like that. Let's steal this game any way possible and get back to healing.

Pats are a team on the rise. If we played them on a neutral field in the current health, I'd take them to win.

I think it is safe to say this schedule is much tougher than a lot of us thought it would be. Anyone still think the Browns are going 4-0 vs Pittsburgh and Cincinnati?

Well JJ Watt never even had so much of a finger on a QB this season UNTIL they played us and he looked like D player of the year. So I am sure Von will destroy us like he always seems to do. But No matter What GO BROWNS. Or until the 2nd when we are down 24-0 before half time.

well...we had both our tackles out....Hudson is a rookie. Hudson had a terrible time. Baker was hurt.... Landry was out, OBJ left the game, Hance had a tough game.......

good read:

Yes, Von will kill us, but we have to find a way to limit the mauling. It's very rare to completely shut down Hall of Fame players, but the trick isn't to stop them, but to prevent game-changing plays. If he gets a sack, make sure you don't fumble. If you fumble, recover it. And so on. One of the problems facing us is that if we do give up a sack, that's likely the end of the drive. Any sack, holding penalty, or even dropped pass can put us behind the sticks and punting before you know it. 

You can only take SO much from preseason, but if you remember, Case Keenum was definitely Captain Checkdown. I mean he threw NOTHING past 6 yards and I'm hardly exaggerating. I honestly do not know how good of a grasp Case has on the offense, but I do know this:  We will NOT be able to run ball. Not just because Chubb and Hunt are out, and not because our Tackles are out (likely) but because the Broncos have an excellent defense and they're going to put 38 defenders on the line of scrimmage. 

Look, I have faith in our backup RBs, and I believe they have skill for being 3rd, 4th, and 5th stringers, but it's almost impossible to run on a 6 man front. They're literally going to DARE us to throw the ball on them, which is exactly what Arizona did. If you remember, we came out passing the ball almost exclusively. That's precisely what we'll have to do in order to win. If you manage to shred their 6 man front early, they'll adjust, and THAT'S when you run behind Teller. 

The season feels like it's almost over, and I get it. This was supposed to be a magical season, and to be honest, we're a few plays away from it. Our idiot punter drops an effing snap, our defense has multiple blown coverages, and poof! We're 3-3. But guess what? Guess what a win does? It takes us to 4-3 with about 10 days of rest until a showdown at Pittsburgh. It'll be potentially the healthiest we've been in weeks and it comes at the biggest point of our season. Win tomorrow, save the season. I don't care if it's 3-2. FIND A WAY.

Oh, horse feathers.

Miller, Miller, Miller.

All we have to do, is have Garrett play both ways, put him at offensive tackle whatever side Von Miller lines up on....

and there ya go.

Denver is going to be missing two of their ILBs, and Miller's backup is out too.  Do they have the bodies to put 6-8 in the box?

That's a fair point. They'll obviously have SOMEONE out there, but I don't know anything about how good they are. I'm curious as to how good their corners are. Also, I could be mistaken, but I remember Keenum throwing a pretty nice jump ball while at Minnesota. I would not mind seeing a few of those tonight.

I used to have a Plain Dealer and Press route when I was a kid.  We had to do our own collections also.  I quit the PD a couple of years ago because half the time I wouldn't receive my paper anyways.  Now, it's kind of useless because all the news is old news by the time you receive the paper.  They are going to quit printed news soon.  They a re trying to sell the Cleveland.com as an online news paper.

We better beat Denver for a secondary reason.

I can't stand Goldhammer.  A Denver fan and a fraud. Pretends to be upset when the Browns lose when you know inside he's lovin it.
