BEREA, Ohio - Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield practiced Tuesday and threw the ball well without a wrap or any other type of protection on his right hand.

So Mayfield is preparing for the Browns' upcoming "Monday Night Football" matchup against the New York Jets the way coach Freddie Kitchens expected he would.

"Baker's fine. He's good," Kitchens said.

X-rays taken on Mayfield's throwing hand after Sunday's season-opening 43-13 loss to the Tennessee Titans came back negative, but Mayfield left FirstEnergy Stadium with his wrist and hand wrapped as if he were wearing a fingerless glove.

Mayfield winced in pain after Titans outside linebacker Cameron Wake rushed around right tackle Chris Hubbard and sacked him in the end zone for a safety with 1:42 left in the second quarter.

Kitchens said linebacker Adarius Taylor suffered a high-ankle sprain and starting free safety Damarious Randall has a stomach virus. Both players did not practice Tuesday.

No. 3 wide receiver Rashard Higgins (ankle) was in uniform and on the field during the open portion of practice, but his activity was very limited. After practice, Higgins said he'll be able to play against the Jets. Backup tight end Demetrius Harris (shoulder) also practiced and afterward said he's feeling "good."

Backup offensive tackle Kendall Lamm (knee) and backup running back Dontrell Hilliard (concussion) did not practice.

"Lamm is going to be out for a little bit," Kitchens said. "I don't know how long. It may be a couple of days. It may be a couple weeks. I'm not sure."

The Browns will likely add a backup tackle.
