When the Pittsburgh Steelers take on the Cleveland Browns this week they will not be going against quarterback Deshaun Watson. The Browns released the statement below that Watson will have season-ending surgery on a broken bone in his shoulder.
With Watson out, rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson will be the starting quarterback this week against the Steelers. Thompson-Robinson struggled in his lone start this season, throwing three interceptions in a 28-3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Oct. 1.

The Browns are in a similar situation to the Steelers at this point — questionable quarterback play counterbalanced by a stout defense and solid running game. The Steelers and Browns go into this week’s game 6-3 and battling for second place in the AFC North. The Steelers have the edge after beating the Browns in Week 2.
