Cleveland Browns face challenges as star quarterback faces season-ending shoulder injury

Watson’s Double Blow: Broken Shoulder and High-Ankle Sprain
In a devastating blow to the Cleveland Browns, star quarterback Deshaun Watson will be sidelined for the remainder of the 2023 NFL season. The team announced on Wednesday that Watson sustained a broken bone in his throwing shoulder and a high-ankle sprain during their recent victory against the Baltimore Ravens.
P.J. Walker Steps In as Starting Quarterback
With Watson out, P.J. Walker is set to take the helm for the Browns as they face the Pittsburgh Steelers in the upcoming game. The team looks to adapt to this unexpected change and maintain its momentum in the league.
Watson’s Determination Meets Medical Caution
Despite Watson’s desire to continue playing through the season, medical professionals warned of the potential catastrophic damage to his shoulder if subjected to further hits in the same spot. This cautionary advice influenced the decision to opt for surgical intervention.
Watson’s Journey with the Browns
Acquired in a trade with the Houston Texans in 2022, Watson’s time with the Browns has been marred by controversy and suspension. Accusations of sexual assault led to a half-season suspension, but the Browns signed him to a lucrative five-year, $230 million contract. Watson’s on-field performance has been limited, playing in only 12 games and achieving an 8-4 record with 2,217 passing yards, 14 touchdowns, and nine interceptions.
Looking Ahead for the Browns
Cleveland, currently boasting a 6-3 record this season and featuring one of the league’s top defenses, faces the challenge of regrouping in the absence of their star quarterback. The team’s resilience will be tested as they navigate the remainder of the season without Watson.
