Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson is ready to have a bounce-back campaign in 2024 after an injury-riddled season last year.

Last season, Watson had to undergo season-ending surgery for a fracture in his throwing shoulder after just six games played. He then watched Joe Flacco step in and lead Cleveland to the postseason.

As we look forward to 2024, Watson has taken a nice step in his rehab. In an article by Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, Watson could begin light throwing as soon as next week.

Watson's private quarterback coach Quincy Avery and tight end David Njoku are with him in Los Angeles as he rehabs.

The former Clemson standout, who underwent surgery on Nov. 21, has been rehabbing in Los Angeles, under the instruction of his surgeon Dr. Neal ElAttrache.

Cabot added in her article that Watson will have some light throwing at UCLA and plans to be a part of the Browns' offseason programs.

Cleveland doesn't plan to rush Watson back but this is trending in the right direction for the 28-year-old signal caller.

In 2024, Watson has a $63 million cap hit and the pressure to come through is starting to add up.
