CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield underwent surgery Wednesday morning to repair the torn labrum in his shoulder.

Mayfield shared on his Instagram pagethat the surgery went great and was a complete success.

"This is one of those steps to get back to my true self. This past year hasn't been very easy. A lot of stuff has gone down and it wasn't easy on me or my family," Mayfield said in the video.

The Cleveland Browns released the following statement on Mayfield's surgery:

Mayfield tore his labrum in his non-throwing arm in Week 2 of the season and injured it more after a hit against the Cardinals during Week 6.

The quarterback missed just one game with the injury and wore a shoulder harness to limit his range of motion to prevent further injury for the majority of the season.

A league source told News 5 Mayfield will begin physical therapy next week following today's successful shoulder surgery, and that there will be a better idea of how long the rehabilitation process will last then.

Mayfield is expected to fully recover and play next season.
