Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield suffered a hand injury during the team’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday but is vowing to play in the next game.

“Mama didn’t raise no wuss,” he said when asked why he was confident he will play, according to ESPN.

The second-year quarterback suffered a hand contusion and didn’t throw a pass in practice on Wednesday. He suffered the bruise in the first half of the game. According to FOX8 Cleveland, Mayfield’s hand was heavily taped but coach Freddie Kitchens said he wouldn’t limit the quarterback.
