The NFL Players Association did not appeal the six-game suspension imposed on Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson. Thus, unless the appeal filed by the NFL results in no suspension at all (highly unlikely), Watson will miss the first six weeks of the regular season.

The question is whether he’ll return in Week Seven, at Baltimore. If a longer suspension is imposed on him via appeal, and if a lawsuit challenging the league’s process is filed, the earliest he’d return is Week Seven — if the lawsuit produces the desired results.
