At some point this afternoon after Browns practice, coach Hue Jackson is expected to name Baker Mayfield his new starter.

But his former starter may be making it a moot point.

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, quarterback Tyrod Taylor is not on the practice field with the rest of the team today, after suffering a concussion in last Thursday’s game against the Jets.

While every concussion is different, few players clear the protocol in a week, and this is Taylor’s third appearance in the protocol in the last 13 months.

Jackson will address reporters after practice, at which point we can all say the news is #asexpected.
