The Browns and Ravens are two of the top teams in the AFC playoff hunt, but Cleveland’s postseason fate could rest in the hands of a rookie quarterback or P.J. Walker.

According to Tom Pelissero, Deshaun Watson will have season-ending shoulder surgery.

The Browns released this statement on Wednesday morning:

“An MRI of his right shoulder revealed a displaced fracture to the glenoid. Despite performing at a high level and finishing the game, after consultation with Browns’ Head Physician, James Voos, MD, and industry-leading shoulder specialist, Neal ElAttrache, MD, it has been determined that this injury will require immediate surgical repair to avoid further structural damage. Deshaun will be placed on season-ending injured reserve and a full recovery is expected for the start of the 2024 season.”

Acquired in a trade with the Texans in March of 2022 for three first-round picks and more, Watson was in the second year of his contract worth a fully guaranteed $230 million.

In 2022, Wastson missed the first 11 games of the season.

Watson suffered the injury n the first quarter this past Sunday, and played through the shoulder fracture in the comeback win over Baltimore, completing 20 of 34 passes for 213 yards, one touchdown, one interception, and a passer rating of 74.8.
