Woodson: Mayfield to take advantage of Buccaneers' pass D (0:52)

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

The Browns have scored six points in the first quarter this season, by far an NFL low. Initial plays are scripted and practiced, so in theory a team should run the initial plays efficiently. Todd Haley said the early struggles have been a major point of discussion among the coaching staff. "This week we need to do something to get the Browns going early," Haley said. "We can't sit around and wait for somebody else to do it."

Todd Haley stressed that the way Baker Mayfield reacts to a bad loss to the Chargers is vital in his development.

Cornerback E.J. Gaines is in concussion protocol. Gaines was starting because Terrance Mitchell broke a bone in his wrist. That's two corners out. Jameis Winston threw for 395 yards and four touchdowns last weekend.

Baker Mayfield talks about working with young receivers, then very succintly sums up the condition of his ankle, which he turned Sunday against the Chargers.

Center JC Tretter did not practice due to a sprained ankle. Coach Hue Jackson was optimistice that Tretter would be able to play Sunday, provided things go well during the week. If he can't, rookie Austin Corbett would get the start.

The Browns signed receiver Da'Mari Scott and linebacker Xavier Woodson-Luster off their practice squad. Scott is a 6-foot rookie from Fresno State who was with the Browns in training camp; he had eight preseason receptions. Rod Streater was placed on injured reserve; he fractured a bone in his neck in a freak collision on Sunday. The team waived/injured linebacker James Burgess Jr. (hamstring) and signed offensive lineman Jake Eldrenkamp and receiver Blake Jackson to the practice squad.

Bills QB Allen week-to-week after elbow injury

With Josh Allen in doubt for Sunday after injuring his elbow, Bills coach Sean McDermott said the team will "work through" whether Nathan Peterman or Derek Anderson gets to replace the rookie.

Jarvis Landry and Joel Bitonio promise the loss to the Chargers was just a bad day, not an example of the team getting ahead of itself after getting to .500. "We don't want to lay another egg like that," Bitonio said.

Wide receiver Rod Streater fractured a bone in his neck in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. He will miss the season, but the team said he does not need surgery and doctors expect a full recovery. Rookie receiver Derrick Willies had surgery today to repair his broken collarbone; Willies is on injured reserve and will be a candidate to return this season.

The fact that the Browns signed Breshad Perriman shows the wide receiver talent available on the free agent market. Damion Ratley played well Sunday after the missed TD pass, and Rashard Higgins will be back at some point. If the Browns want to upgrade a position that needs upgrading, it's worth checking to see if Oakland might trade Amari Cooper, and for what. Cooper's health status is in question, though; he took a big hit Sunday and left the game with a concussion.

Baker Mayfield said he turned his right ankle running out of bounds in the first quarter, but said he it did not affect him. Asked if the issue may linger, he simply said "no."

The false start by Russell Okung that wasn't called -- the Chargers scored their third touchdown despite an obvious false start -- happened on the Chargers side of the field. But Hue Jackson said the official on his side of the field told him the refs simply "missed it." Defensive tackle Larry Obunjobi offered this thought: "It was one of those plays where you have to keep playing, even though sometimes the referees miss things. You still have to finish the play."

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers was asked what advice he'd give Baker Mayfield. Rivers' response:

Baker Mayfield said he will be hard on himself after losing to the Chargers: "It doesn't matter what they do. I gotta do my job."
