Ruling in Cleveland Browns QB Deshaun Watson's disciplinary case expected Monday, sources say

NFL disciplinary officer Sue L. Robinson is expected to issue a decision Monday on whether Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson violated the league's personal conduct policy, sources confirmed to ESPN.

Watson has been accused of sexual assault and inappropriate conduct during massage sessions in civil lawsuits filed by 25 women. The encounters cited in the lawsuits took place between March 2020 and March 2021, while Watson was a member of the Houston Texans. One of the 25 lawsuits was dropped following a judge's ruling in April 2021 that plaintiffs needed to amend their petitions to disclose their names.
