Deshaun Watson Suspension Official As Browns QB’s Absence Extended

Watson is set to return in Week 13


Aug 18, 2022

A ruling has been made on Deshaun Watson.

The Cleveland Browns quarterback has been suspended 11 games and fined $5 million for violating the league’s personal conduct policy, as announced by the league.

NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport shared the announcement Thursday.

Disciplinary officer Sue L. Robinson suggested a six-game suspension for Watson, a ruling the NFLPA supported — despite the QB facing over 20 civil lawsuits alleging sexual misconduct. The NFL appealed the decision. Though he did settle most of them, commissioner Roger Goodell called for a harsher suspension, calling Watson’s actions “predatory.”

Watson now is slated to return in Week 13 against his former team, the Houston Texans.
