Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson has been dealing with a shoulder injury that has caused him to miss the last couple of games. His status for this week against the Arizona Cardinals is still up in the air, but he gave reporters an interesting answer as to whether he will be ready to go this week or not.

Deshaun Watson Injury
Watson says that his shoulder is getting better every day, however, he also says that he is not sure that he will be playing on Sunday. This marks yet another week of uncertainty for the Browns regarding getting their quarterback back from injury. He also says he is taking it day by day and does not want to give an official update until he knows for certain.
Watson is back at practice this week after not practicing all of last week and was limited this week after coming back. The team has been very cautious with his injury they initially downplayed but ended up turning into a season-altering injury.
Impact On Team
Watson so far this year has amounted to just 683 passing yards and four touchdowns along with three interceptions. Backup P.J. Walker has been the starter for the last couple of games for Cleveland and has not exactly played well, but has done enough for the Browns to get some wins against big teams. A big reason is the stout defense that they have, which has been one of if not the best defense in the entire league.
Cleveland is currently sitting at a 4-3 record and third place in the highly competitive AFC North. They will be facing the Cardinals this week, which should get them another win. As for Watson, his status for this week is still unknown, but it seems unlikely that he will be playing.
