Deshaun Watson to return to Browns amid 11-game suspension
For the first time since Deshaun Watson was handed an 11-game suspension, the Cleveland Browns quarterback will report to the team facility.
Deshaun Watson has only served four of the 11 weeks of suspension imposed on him for sexual misconduct and the quarterback has already begun his process to debut with the Browns.
According to information from The Associated Press, Watson will appear at the Browns facilities for the first time since his suspension began. During his absence at the FirstEnergy Stadium he underwent psychological treatment as part of his punishment.
At this point in the suspension, Watson is unable to practice- he can only attend meetings and work out within the club. Additionally, the coaching staff is prohibited from communicating with the Clemson product. On top of the 11-game suspension, he also paid a fine of five million dollars.
Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski, who said that he has not been able to speak with Watson since the start of the suspension, was enthusiastic about the reinstatement of the signal caller.
“I look forward to seeing him and joining his teammates,” said the coach. “I know there are limitations on what we can do now. It will be great to have him back at the facility.”
When will Watson return?
Watson’s first practice session will be on Nov. 14, after week 10, and his first official game with the Browns will be on Dec. 4 against the Houston Texans, the organization that sent him to Cleveland last offseason in exchange for six draft picks (three first-round picks).
