Jacoby Brissett, QB (CLE)

Set to fill in for Watson

Brissett is in line to work as the Browns' starting QB to begin the coming season, with teammate Deshaun Watson slated to serve an 11-game suspension, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.

With Watson unavailable until Week 13, Brissett is expected to serve in the former's place, while Joshua Dobbs and Josh Rosen are in the backup mix. It's possible the Browns could explore other options in the coming weeks, but Brissett, an experienced pro capable of helming an NFL offense, has drawn the praise of coach Kevin Stefanski, who has "been very impressed" with the veteran signal-caller. "Very comfortable with him," Stefanski said of Brissett. "I think he has a very good understanding of what we're trying to do offensively."
