Josh Dobbs Browns quarterback Joshua Dobbs warms up before a game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Thursday, Sept. 22, 2022, in Cleveland. Brownspregame 3

For better or worse, Deshaun Watson is back on the active roster for the Cleveland Browns. In order to make room for their superstar who missed the first 11 weeks of the season over various allegations of sexual assault and misconduct, the Browns cut quarterback Josh Dobbs.

Dobbs may clear waivers and if that happens he can return to the team as a member of their practice squad. That would apparently be their preference.

Along with Watson, Cleveland still has backup Jacoby Brissett and former Vikings third-round pick Kellen Mond on their quarterback depth chart.

Dobbs did not see any action this season after signing with the Browns in April.

Dobbs, who played college football at Tennessee, was drafted by the Steelers in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft. Buried on the depth chart in his rookie season, Dobbs saw action in five games in 2018, mostly in clean-up duty. He was traded to the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2019 but was waived a year later. He re-signed with the Steelers in 2020 and appeared in one game for them before spending all of 2021 on injured reserve.

Cleveland also announced Monday that it had signed offensive tackle Myron Cunningham to the practice squad and placed offensive tackle Will Holden on the practice squad/injured list.
