I'm pretty sure he isn't. The suspension starts after final roster cutdowns.

But I did find it hilarious that his first game back is against... HOU.  I daresay that is why we are seeing an 11-game suspension and not 12.

I'm shocked that you would infer the NFL would use the suffering of dozens of women to increase viewership in week 12 of the season.  Roll Eyes

I'll take that bet right now.

Unless he's injured or somehow ruled administratively ineligible to play, Watson will absolutely play against the Texans.  No question.

Just an update to this thread since I couldn't find the contract extension one.

Watson played 6 games last year and was meh at best, but he was coming back from a long layoff so that could be excused.

This year so far, he has played 3 games at mediocre production and missed the last 2 games with an injury. Weird thing is, he was medically cleared to go in Week 4 but chose not to play because he didn't feel he was ready. Then, he sat out on Sunday.....and now his coach says that he might not play in Week 6 either.

Did he quit on the season already? What an absolute disaster the trade and contract has been for the Browns.

^^^^ Between Johnny Football and Watson, the Browns are the worst at evaluating QB's.  They should bring in Kevin Costner to draft their next QB, I'll bet he does much better.

Don't forget Tim Couch, Brady Quinn and Brandon Weeden.   But other than that, I agree.   And to think the Dolphins were in that position between Marino and Tannehill although they never blew a first rounder on any of the QBs they had.

Technically, he did not play and I refuse to admit defeat.

That being said, if he may not play next week, then he definitely wasn't going to play yesterday if there was a game.

yes, TECHNICALLY, he sat out week 5.

...Along with everyone else on his team.

But you're right, he better be back on the field this week.

He is ruled out for the Niners game, refused to answer a question about his health and the local newspaper said he could miss several more weeks while his head coach called him day to day a week ago.

Something happened, this isn't an injury. I think he's angry at the team or owners and he's sitting his fully guaranteed ass out until he feels like playing.

^ It was reported that it's a deep shoulder contusion, which is acting more like a sprain. He tried to warm up before the first  game after he was cleared and said he was experiencing a lot of pain and weakness. He's reportedly been told not basically not throw the ball until the pain subsides.

I'm not ruling it out that this is the truth, but that's a colossal fuck up by the medical staff if true. To the point that they should be fired, so I'm still skeptical. Telling a player during a playoff game that he is fine when he isn't? Yeah, that happens. Telling your franchise QB that he is good to go in Week 4 when he isn't? That leaves me still questioning.

The Browns are the absolute worst organization when it comes to QB's.  Tim Couch, Johnny Football, Mayfield (when others were available), and then bringing in Watson.  It's like they're stepping up to the plate trying to hit a grand slam when their batting average is .150.
