Deshaun Watson faced a challenging moment as he grappled with the news of missing the remainder of the season due to a shoulder injury.
The Cleveland Browns announced Watson’s season-ending surgery to repair a displaced fracture in his throwing shoulder after an MRI on Monday. Watson expressed the difficulty of processing the information and the disappointment of not being physically present to contribute to the team’s progress.
Despite the setback, he remains optimistic about the Browns’ potential and emphasized his desire to be part of their journey. Watson mentioned that continuing to play with pain-masking injections posed risks, potentially causing his arm to suffer severe damage from future hits.
Placed on injured reserve, Watson aims to return for the 2024 season, hopeful to resume throwing in two to three months.
