Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt, quarterback Baker Mayfield and linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah will undergo MRI exams after leaving Sunday's 37-14 loss to the visiting Arizona Cardinals with various injuries.

Hunt was carted off in the fourth quarter with a non-contact calf injury. Coach Kevin Stefanski confirmed after the game that Hunt's injury was to his calf, not his Achilles.

The Browns were already playing without their other top back, Nick Chubb, who has a calf injury of his own.

Mayfield landed on his left (non-throwing) shoulder on a strip-sack in the third quarter. He was already playing with a partially torn labrum in that shoulder.

After two brief visits to the medical tent, Mayfield returned to the field, but with the game out of reach, he was pulled for the final five minutes and backup Case Keenum finished the game out.

Owusu-Koramoah, who suffered a throat bruise a week ago during a game against the Los Angeles Chargers, left Sunday's contest with an ankle injury.

Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. also briefly left with an apparent right shoulder injury.

He visited the medical tent and then headed to the locker room in the second quarter but returned to the field in the third quarter.

Beckham was screaming in pain on the sideline after being driven into the turf by two Cardinal defenders following a 17-yard reception. He finished the first half with two catches for 42 yards.
