Browns vs. Broncos Live Score, Updates, NFL “Thursday Night Football” Highlights
Case Keenum will make his first NFL start since 2019 when the Browns host the Broncos in “Thursday Night Football”.
Keenum is in the lineup for quarterback Baker Mayfield, one of many injured Cleveland starters who will miss the game. The team pre-match injury report included 19 players, with half of them listed as questionable or absent. Mayfield suffered a torn labrum to his left shoulder in the Browns’ 37-14 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday. He was not placed in the casualty reserve, so there is a chance he could return by week 8.

The five-time Pro Bowler will return from an MCL sprain suffered in Week 2. Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was also activated hours before the game.
Teddy Bridgewater is set to start as Broncos quarterback despite a foot injury. He was stomped on by a teammate in the closing stages of the team’s Sunday loss to the Raiders.
