The Cleveland Browns will name rookie Baker Mayfield their starting quarterback Monday, a source told ESPN, confirming a report by Cleveland.com.

Browns coach Hue Jackson will announce Mayfield as the team's starter after meeting with the No. 1 overall draft pick and veteran Tyrod Taylor.

Jackson has publicly said that he will wait until Monday to announce his starter for Cleveland's next game, which is against the Oakland Raiders. Jackson has given the players the weekend off, and he does not want to announce his starter without first talking to the players.

Taylor was injured in Thursday night's game against the Jets and was replaced by Mayfield, who helped the Browns erase a 14-point deficit and record their first win since Dec. 24, 2016.

Taylor is expected to clear the concussion protocol this week, sources tell ESPN's Adam Schefter.
