Deshaun Watson is ruled OUT week 4 Vs the Ravens

Cleveland Browns QB Deshaun Watson had been practicing in a limited capacity all week. He did not throw much if any passes while nursing a shoulder injury but reassured us all week he would be ready to play Sunday. Turns out that was a lie. Watson will miss week 4s matchup Vs the Baltimore Ravens after evaluating his shoulder in warmup throws led to a meeting and subsequently a deactivation.

The injury to Watsons shoulder leads to a downgrade to the overall offense and pass catchers especially for Cleveland. Rookie QB Dorian Thompson Robinson will take over as the teams starting quarterback and although he had an impressive preseason real NFL action is much different (see Kenny Picket).

Dorian Thompson Robinson, AKA DTR, is a highly athletic young QB that has earned praise from the likes of Aaron Rodgers, and has shown promise early; but again this is a real NFL game against a divisional rival Baltimore Ravens squad that is hungry to get back on track after a devastating loss last week. The Ravens will make life difficult for DTR and his pass catchers are all downgraded in this game. Expect to see a lot more focus on the running game, with usage of DTR in that area as he runs a 4.56 forty yard dash and will be utilized in that fashion.
