The second-year QB went for X-rays outside Cleveland’s locker room and then left FirstEnergy Stadium with his wrist heavily taped.
The team said X-rays were negative.
Mayfield was intercepted three times in the fourth quarter, when the Titans scored 21 points and ran away from the Browns.

The Browns fell to 1-19-1 in season openers and disappointed a sellout crowd revved up by an offseason roster overhaul.
