Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson talks with head coach Kevin Stefansky after minicamp on Wednesday, June 15, 2022 in Canton, Ohio, at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium.

Will Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson be suspended for six games?

Will Watson be suspended for the entire season?

Will he be forced to pay a hefty fine and keep the suspension at six games?

Will it be something else altogether?

For a few hours on Friday night, Browns fans can turn their attention away from the off-the-field issues surrounding their star quarterback and just enjoy the first NFL preseason football game involving their favorite team.

It's not likely that other Browns stars, such as Myles Garrett, Nick Chubb, Amari Cooper, Jadeveon Clowney, Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah and Joel Bitonio will play more than a few snaps. Injured cornerback Denzel Ward won't play at all.

How much will Watson play, if at all? How much will Jacoby Brissett, the backup and presumed starter in the case of Watson's absence to start the season, play?
