Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield was absent from the team's injury report, Cleveland released on Friday.

Mayfield vowed to play against AFC North divisional rival Cincinnati Bengals after being limited in practice on Wednesday, telling reporters via Adam Schefter, “mama didn’t raise no wuss.”

Mayfield was 18-of-32, throwing a touchdown and a critical game-ending interception on the final drive to seal the Steelers win.

After being hobbled in last week's 13-20 Pittsburgh loss. Mayfield arrived at practice with his hand wrapped in a bandage limiting his reps in practice on Wednesday opting not to throw.

He felt resting his bruised hand would not disrupt the rhythm of him and his receivers ahead of Sunday's game.

“If we communicate on the right depths and where we need to be, then we should not have a problem,” Mayfield said, via Browns’ official site.

Browns (5-7) host Bengals (1-11) Sunday at noon.
