He is still serving an 11 game NFL suspension for sexual misconduct allegations.

Watson was cleared to return to team practices Monday and will continue to serve his suspension until Dec. 4, WOIO reports.

Coach Kevin Stefanski would not reveal any specifics about plans to get Watson ready to play in two weeks while also preparing Jacoby Brissett for this Sunday’s game at Buffalo, the associated press reports.

“This is the next step for him, and it’s good to have him back out on the field,” Stefanski said. “What’s important is that we do everything we can to find a way to get a win versus Buffalo. That is where the players’ focus is.”

Watson took the majority of snaps with Cleveland’s starting offense in training camp and started the Browns’ exhibition opener at Jacksonville before his suspension began.

He had been banned from the team’s facility until mid-October, when he was allowed to attend meetings and work out.

Brissett will start two more games for Cleveland.

The Browns will play the Buffalo Bills in Orchard Park, New York Sunday afternoon.

Kickoff is at 1 p.m. You can watch the game on Channel 7.

The game will also be broadcast on 1290 and 95-7, WHIO.
