The Cleveland Browns enjoying a thrilling overtime victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, but the game held much more significance than that. This was quarterback Jacoby Brissett's final start for the Browns with Deshaun Watson's suspension coming to an end.

On Monday, Browns insider Mary Kay Cabot revealed the exact timeline for Watson's return from an 11-game suspension.

Cabot explains that Watson will be officially reinstated at 4 p.m. ET on Monday. This is just the start of a busy week for the quarterback who hasn't played a live down of NFL football since 2020.

Watson is slated to begin taking first-team reps with the team on Wednesday when Cleveland resumes their practice schedule ahead of a Week 13 clash with the Houston Texans. Cabot also indicates Watson will address the media "at some point this week."

This busy week concludes with a highly-anticipated return to Houston, where Watson will slot in as the Browns' new QB1. Watson spent the first four seasons of his NFL career with the Texans, marking another stroke of genius in this year's schedule.

For now, Watson and the Browns are considered 7-point road favorites against the Texans, per NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
