Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson is expected to play this Sunday when they take on the Baltimore Ravens. Watson’s shoulder is not at 100% currently, but that should not keep from him taking the field for Week 4’s matchup. This is according to Browns offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt.
#Browns OC Alex Van Pelt said they're confident Deshaun Watson will play Sunday despite his shoulder getting banged up on Sunday against the Titans. Said they'll see how he feels today on the field to decide how much he does at practice.

The Browns need Watson if they are going to come out victorious against the Ravens. Cleveland’s passing offense finally appeared to turn the corner in Week 3’s dominant win over the Titans. This could not have come at a better time due to the team losing Nick Chubb for the season in Week 2. Watson must continue to play at a high level if this Browns team is going to have any sort of success this season.
Watson started one game for Cleveland against Baltimore last season. It was not the best performance, completing 18 of 28 pass attempts for 161 yards and one touchdown. This game came with Chubb in the lineup while the Ravens were without Lamar Jackson. The Browns are going to need a much better outing from Watson this time around if they are going to enter the bye week at 3-1. An effort similar to the first two weeks of this season could result in the team dropping to 2-2.
