Deshaun Watson

After missing the first 11 weeks of the season due to a suspension over various allegations of sexual assault and misconduct, Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson is back from his suspension and ready to start for the Cleveland Browns. And his head coach Kevin Stefanski praised his quarterback’s preparation.

Ahead of Deshaun Watson‘s first start of the season against the Houston Texans – Watson’s former team – Stefanski said that he has confidence in the quarterback because of his focus and preparation.

“I have confidence in Deshaun based on his preparation and, really, the focus is on just him doing his job,” Stefanski said, according to Mary Kay Cabot of “I mean, we’re still gonna be all about the team effort, still offense, defense and special teams. So this is never, ever gonna be about one person. But as it relates to Deshaun, I believe in his preparation, I believe that he worked really hard on a bunch of things to be ready to go.”

Though this is the first week that Watson is eligible to play in a game, he has been practicing with the team for a few weeks and he has already turned some heads on the practice field.
