BEREA, Ohio (92.3 The Fan) – Baker Mayfield let it rip with ease Thursday.

The Browns’ quarterback was back taking his usual reps during the portion of practice open to reporters.

“Baker looked good,” head coach Freddie Kitchens said.

Mayfield was not limited Thursday morning and he plans to play Sunday against the Bengals “[Because] Mama didn’t raise a wuss.”

It was the first time Mayfield threw since suffering the injury during Sunday’s 20-13 loss to the Steelers.

“[Wednesday] was just give him a little break on some of the throws,” Kitchens said. “He's going to be fine.”

Mayfield injured his right hand following through on a deep ball to receiver Odell Beckham Jr. in the closing seconds of the first half Sunday in Pittsburgh. His hand hit the helmet and face mask of Steelers linebacker Bud Dupree.

Kitchens joked when asked how Mayfield threw Thursday while wearing the brace.

“It just fluttered,” Kitchens said with a laugh. “No, Baker's fine.”
