Watson is scheduled to have surgery on his throwing shoulder, which will end his season, aiming to repair it and prevent any additional structural harm.
The Cleveland Browns stated QB Deshaun Watson’s health status.
Following his MRI on Monday, it was revealed that he sustained two injuries during Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens.
The scan on his left ankle identified a high-ankle sprain, while postgame, he reported discomfort in his right shoulder, leading to an MRI that showed a displaced fracture to the glenoid.
Despite Watson’s remarkable performance in completing the game, consultations with Browns’ Head Physician, James Voos, MD, and shoulder specialist, Neal ElAttrache, MD, concluded that immediate surgical repair is necessary to prevent further damage.
As a result, he will be placed on the injured reserve for the remainder of the season, aiming for a full recovery ahead of the 2024 season kickoff.
