Deshaun Watson Injury
Watson returned to practice for the first time this week after missing the last couple of weeks to a shoulder injury. He provided an update yesterday saying that he is unsure if he can start on Sunday. Now, head coach Kevin Stefanski said that the quarterback is off of the injury report and is expected to start.
The team has been very cautious with Watson’s injury after they downplayed it when it initially happened. Backup P.J. Walker has been starting in the absence of Watson and has not performed very well. If it weren’t for the Browns’ stout defense, they would have most likely lost their last two games. Watson has been taking his injury day by day, and it seems now that he is ready to return to playing.
So far this season, the quarterback has gone for 683 passing yards and four touchdowns. He was injured in week four against the Indianapolis Colts and has not played since. He has dealt with much criticism this year for his mediocre play, but he will look to come back better than before.
Cleveland is currently sitting in third place in the highly competitive AFC North with a 4-3 record. They will look to take care of business this week against the Cardinals who have been struggling all season long. As for Watson, we will see if he is still able to perform at a high level after coming back from a serious injury.
