CLEVELAND, Ohio (92.3 The Fan) – Following one of the most consequential wins since the franchise returned in 1999 Sunday afternoon in Baltimore, the Cleveland Browns received devastating news.
Quarterback Deshaun Watson's season is over.
Watson suffered a broken right shoulder during the first half of Sunday’s 33-31 victory over the Ravens that will require immediate surgery.
Watson also suffered a high ankle sprain in the win that sent him to the locker room in the first half and forced backup P.J. Walker to take a few snaps before Watson returned.
MRIs taken Monday revealed both injuries.
Watson becomes the third key offensive starter lost for the season due to injury.
Right tackle Jack Conklin suffered a torn ACL in Week 1 and running back Nick Chubb suffered a massive knee injury in Week 2. Chubb underwent a second surgery to repair his ACL on Tuesday.
In leading the Browns back from a 15-half third quarter deficit Sunday, Watson completed all 14 of his passes in the half for 134 yards with a touchdown. He also ran for 18 yards, including a 16-yard scramble in the final drive to help set up the game-winning field goal, and a two-point conversion.
