This news directly impacts the Houston Texans, as Watson's first game after the 11 game suspension will be against Houston in NRG Stadium on December 4th.
One thing is for sure, the ratings will see an uptick when Watson makes his return to H-Town.
The Cleveland Browns released this statement on Thursday.
