Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield had his right hand examined following the Browns' loss to Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

Mayfield was spotted leaving FirstEnergy Stadium with a soft wrap after suffering a bruised wrist, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported. The injury isn’t considered serious.

The Mayfield-led Browns had a penalty plagued game. The Browns committed 18 penalties for 182 yards – a league most in over 50 years.

Mayfield threw for 285 yards and a touchdown. He threw three interceptions in fourth-quarter that led to Browns' blowout 43-13 loss. The loss was Mayfield’s largest margin of defeat while in college or NFL. It was the Browns' 15th consecutive season-opener loss.

The Browns travel to the New York Jets (0-1) for a Monday Night Football contest next week.

Quarterback Baker Mayfield was named team captain of the Cleveland Browns only a year removed being drafted No. 1 overall in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Mayfield, one of three teams captains, took over the team in week three of the 2018 season and led the team to a respectable 7-7 record. The Browns had previously won only a single game in 37 contests.

The former Oklahoma quarterback is joined by linebacker Christian Kirksey and special teamer Charley Hughlett as team captains, the team announced on Friday.

Browns' team captains are elected by their teammates and a fourth will be designated on a week-by-week basis.

The Browns host Tennessee Titans on Sunday at noon on CBS.
