Browns QB Deshaun Watson to Undergo Season-Ending Shoulder Surgery

Cleve­land Browns quar­ter­back Deshaun Wat­son requires surgery to repair a shoul­der frac­ture, end­ing his 2023 sea­son. Doc­tors act­ing imme­di­ate­ly avoids fur­ther dam­age for Wat­son, expect­ed back for 2024.

Deshaun Wat­son missed four games ear­li­er with a rota­tor cuff strain in the same shoul­der. Despite injuries, he led Cleve­land to a last-minute win over Bal­ti­more last Sun­day. How­ev­er, MRIs after found the frac­ture occurred that day along with a high ankle sprain.

Back­up quar­ter­back PJ Walk­er now takes over the start­ing role. As the new starter, Walk­er will aim to keep Cleve­land com­pet­i­tive in the cru­cial AFC North matchups as they seek a play­off berth.

The injury impacts Deshaun Wat­son’s team and fan­ta­sy foot­ball val­ue. It also impacts bet­ting mar­kets, low­er­ing Browns odds for divi­sion title and Super Bowl win. Cleve­land remains favorites over Pitts­burgh this week­end but by a small­er mar­gin as the sea­son-end­ing set­back side­lines their star quarterback.
