Cleveland Browns general manager Andrew Berry provided an optimistic update on quarterback Deshaun Watson’s recovery from shoulder surgery during an appearance on NFL Network’s “The Insiders.” Berry stated that Watson is ahead of schedule and eager to resume full activity, indicating he has been throwing every other day throughout the off-season program.

This regimen follows surgery to repair a displaced fracture to his throwing shoulder, an injury that sidelined him for the latter part of the 2023 season, including the playoffs.

Despite progress, Watson has not yet received full clearance to participate in unrestricted practice sessions, although he did engage in 7-on-7 drills during mandatory minicamp. The Browns are preparing to begin training camp in late July, with Berry expressing enthusiasm about Watson’s continued recovery and readiness for the upcoming season.

Since arriving in Cleveland in a high-profile trade before the 2022 season, Watson’s tenure has been marked by challenges. The Browns are hopeful that with the support of new offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey and the addition of wide receiver Jerry Jeudy, Watson will bounce back from previous struggles.

Berry emphasized Watson’s excellent progress and indicated that observers might not even notice he was injured last season, underscoring the quarterback’s determination and commitment to return to peak performance.

Looking ahead to training camp, Berry conveyed excitement about Watson’s potential once the team starts practicing in pads, highlighting a collective optimism within the Browns organization as they anticipate a productive season ahead.
