A hip injury will not keep Baker Mayfield out of this Sunday's meeting between the Browns and Patriots.

At least if we go off Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens' thoughts on his second-year quarterback after Tuesday's practice.

“I thought [Mayfield] looked good today,” Kitchens, whose team is coming off a Week 7 bye, told reporters. “Focused, concentrated, threw the ball well, moved around well. He is good to go.”

Injured in Cleveland's Week 6 loss to the Seahawks, Mayfield departed back to the locker room but ultimately didn't miss any offensive snaps, and finished with 22 completions, a touchdown, and three interceptions on 39 attempts.

Even if he's indeed 100 percent, Mayfield will have a tall task ahead of him, as he's going up against a New England defense that's straight-up bullied their opponents en route to a 7-0 record out of the gate. Led by 'The Boogeymen,' the Patriot defense has allowed a league-low 223.1 yards per game, and given up just one touchdown through the air. The Patriots also lead the league in interceptions, with 18 through the first seven weeks of the 2019 NFL season.

Mayfield, meanwhile, has thrown a league-high 11 interceptions this season.
