  • Browns' Case Keenum: Pair of TD tosses in finale

    Keenum completed 17 of 24 passes for 176 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in the Browns' 21-16 win over the Bengals on Sunday. He also rushed five times for 15 yards and lost a fumble.

    Keenum once again did a serviceable job in Baker Mayfield's (shoulder) stead, connecting with Jarvis Landry and Demetric Felton on touchdown passes of 26 and 10 yards, respectively. The veteran is under contract through next season and therefore figures to remain as a trusted veteran No. 2 option behind Mayfield or a possible offseason addition.

  • Browns' Case Keenum: Named Week 18 starter

    Head coach Kevin Stefanski named Keenum the Browns' starting quarterback for Sunday's season finale against the Bengals, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Stefanski revealed Tuesday that Baker Mayfield wouldn't be available for Week 18 while planning to move forward with a procedure to repair a torn labrum in his left (non-throwing) shoulder, but the coach didn't immediately appoint a replacement for the signal-caller in the lineup. Keenum, who has served as Mayfield's top understudy all season, was always the top candidate to get the start, and Stefanski made the matter official Wednesday. Meanwhile, Nick Mullens is back from the practice squad COVID-19 list and will be elevated to the 53-man roster later this week to serve as Cleveland's No. 2 quarterback.

  • Browns' Case Keenum: Frontrunner for Week 18 start

    Keenum is expected to start Sunday's game against the Bengals after head coach Kevin Stefanski said Tuesday that Baker Mayfield (shoulder) is scheduled to undergo surgery "as soon as possible" and won't be available for the season finale, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Though Stefanski didn't officially name a Week 18 starter, Keenum will presumptively receive the nod, considering he's served as the No. 2 signal-caller behind Mayfield all season when both have been available. Kyle Lauletta, meanwhile, is another option at the position, though he's bounced around multiple organizations since entering the league in 2018 and has only had a few weeks to get up to speed with the Cleveland playbook since being signed off Jacksonville's practice squad Dec. 17. Keenum previously filled in as a starter in place of Mayfield on a Thursday night game against the Broncos back in Week 7. The Browns leaned heavily on a D'Ernest Johnson-led ground attack in that contest, but Keenum was competent when his number was called, as he completed 21 of 33 attempts for 199 yards and a touchdown in Cleveland's 17-14 win.

  • Browns' Case Keenum: Could play Week 18

    Keenum could start in the Browns' season finale Sunday against the Bengals with Baker Mayfield weighing whether to undergo surgery to repair the torn labrum in his left non-throwing shoulder prior to the Week 18 game or during the offseason, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.

    Mayfield fought through multiple injuries this season that contributed to his poor play, but he also struggled with accuracy and made poor decisions. The No. 1 overall pick from the 2018 NFL Draft remains on the books through 2022 after the Browns exercised his $18.86 million team option this past spring, but Monday's 26-14 loss to the Steelers could mark his last outing as a starter if Cleveland elects to pursue an upgrade this offseason. With the Browns eliminated from playoff contention, the team could be reluctant to expose Mayfield to further injury, potentially paving the way for Keenum to pick up his second start of the season. Keenum's first start came against the Broncos back in Week 7, when he completed 21 of 33 attempts for 199 yards and a touchdown in a Cleveland victory.

  • Browns' Case Keenum: Suits up Saturday

    Keenum (illness) is listed as active for Saturday's game against the Packers, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    As is Baker Mayfield, who is slated to start the contest. In that context, Keenum, who was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, is in line to serve as Cleveland's No. 2 QB on Saturday.

  • Browns' Case Keenum: Clears COVID protocols

    Keenum (illness) has cleared COVID protocols and is available for Saturday's game against Green Bay, per Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal and Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer.

    Keenum was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, but he was subsequently listed as questionable by the Browns as he navigated through the league's COVID protocols. His Week 16 status will be finalized upon the release of the team's inactives in advance of Saturday's 4:30 ET kickoff, but Keenum is now poised to back up Baker Mayfield versus Green Bay.

  • Browns' Case Keenum: Returns from COVID list

    Cleveland activated Keenum (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday.

    The Browns also brought back Baker Mayfield (illness), who is in line to start Saturday's game in Green Bay. Keenum should fill his usual role as the backup, after both he and Mayfield missed last week's loss to the Raiders, which allowed Nick Mullens to step in for a spot start.

  • Browns' Case Keenum: Officially questionable for Week 16

    Keenum (illness), who was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, will be listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Packers, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    The designation is only procedural with Keenum being one week removed from testing positive for the virus, but because he's cleared the NFL's COVID-19 return-to-play protocol, he's on track to play Saturday. With Baker Mayfield (illness) also coming off the same list Friday, he's expected to handle his usual starting role, while Keenum backs him up.
