It was long expected that the New York Jets would most likely not face Deshaun Watson when the team travels to Cleveland to face the Browns. Now that’s official.

Retired federal judge Sue Robinson ruled that the QB deserves a six-game suspension, according to Browns Wire.

The NFLPA, on Watson’s behalf, could appeal Robinson’s decision but announced Sunday night that they would not do so. That appeal would go back to the NFL and Roger Goodell. The NFL could appeal for stronger discipline as well.

Regardless, it would be shocking if Watson’s suspension would be lowered to one game. The Jets are slated to visit the Browns in Week 2, so more than likely it won’t be Watson under center against New York.

Behind Watson on the depth chart for Cleveland is Jacoby Brissett.

The Browns originally traded for Watson in March. Days later, Cleveland also signed Brissett.
