Browns to make "game-time decision" on Deshaun Watson, David Njoku out?
The Cleveland Browns listed QB Deshaun Watson as "questionable" for Sunday, and it's looking like his availability is coming down to a "game-time decision," per James Palmer of NFL Network.
Watson is expected to play, but according to reports emerging late Saturday the Browns coaches plan to make the final decision right before kick-off and during pregame warmups.
In another bizarre news, the Browns might not have their starting tight end available on Sunday following injuries sustained by David Njoku on Friday.
Njoku is questionable after he suffered "burn injuries to his face and arm during a household accident," per Jake Trotter of ESPN.
According to Trotter, Njoku was "trying to light a fire pit Friday night." The Browns would use a combination of Jordan Akins and Harrison Bryant if Njoku misses Week 4.
If Watson cannot start against the Ravens, the Browns will deploy rookie quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson, who had a great preseason but is far from ready to get regular-season snaps according to Cleveland beat reporters.
That might explain why the Browns also activated veteran QB P.J. Walker for Sunday, making him the QB3/emergency quarterback for Week 4.
