QB Deshaun Watson ‘looking good’ for week 7?

Browns starting QB Deshaun Watson has thrown passes in practice and although still questionable for this weekend is trending in the right direction.

After practice on Friday, Browns HC Kevin Stefanski said “I want to see how he responds over the next 48 hours based on that full workload that he just got, but he looked good today.”

Watson had seemed to downplay his chances as recently as Wednesday when he said, “Just got to continue to take it day-to-day. I’m not going to put the team in jeopardy if I can’t do certain things that is going to allow us to be handicapped in certain situations. That’s the reason why I haven’t been able to step on the field.”

BROWNS UNLIKELY TO RUSH DESHAUN WATSON

While Deshaun Watson is unquestionably the Browns starting QB, backup PJ Walker did lead the Browns to a stunning win over the 49ers last weekend that may cause Cleveland to be more circumspect with their starter. The upcoming game against the Colts, also without their starting QB, is a much easier game on paper, and the Browns may prefer to give Watson a chance to heal rather than risk further injury. There are definitely more important games on the horizon for the Browns.

Watson has still not reached the heights of the player he was before missing a season and a half with multiple civil cases for sexual assault against him. His stat line for the season is middling, 65/102- 678 yards, 4 touchdowns and 2 interceptions.
