NFL star Deshaun Watson was launched at the center of many sexual assault allegations. After an inquiry into his alleged sexual assaults, Deshaun Watson was first given a six-game suspension. However, as of tomorrow the Browns quarterback will be permitted to return to work.
According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Watson will be able to go back to the team facilities on Monday. This implies that he will be permitted to attend meetings as well as lift weights and engage in conditioning exercises. He may also help with game preparation and planning.
However, he won’t be allowed to throw with the team or attend practice until November 14. He’s due to be reinstated on November 28, subject to his compliance with the NFL’s treatment mandate. It’s surely a major setback in his career.
Cabot also explained that Watson has maintained constant communication with the team’s other quarterbacks and has been regularly working out with his own quarterback coach. It all culminates in Watson’s return for a Week 13 game against the Texans in Houston. Per Cabot, Watson will start that game, regardless of how quarterback Jacoby Brissett performs over the next seven weeks.
Given that the Browns are presently 2-2, that makes sense. It is quite unlikely that Jacoby Brissett would suddenly transform into Johnny Unitas and ignite a seven-game winning streak. That is precisely what would be required to put off Watson’s return to duty. Stay tuned to Thirsty.
