Cleveland Browns QB Deshaun Watson suspended 6 games for violating NFL's personal conduct policy

Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson will serve a six-game suspension for violating the league's

personal conduct policy following accusations of sexual misconduct,

disciplinary officer Sue L. Robinson ruled Monday, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Watson will not be fined, the source told Schefter. Robinson's comprehensive 15-page conclusion stated that though Watson violated the personal conduct policy,

there was not enough evidence to justify an indefinite suspension, a source told ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

Watson is eligible to return for the Browns' Oct. 23 game at Baltimore.

The NFL Players Association, in a statement Sunday night, made it clear that it will "stand by" Robinson's ruling and urged the NFL to do the same.

Sources close to Watson believe six games is too much, but they respect the decision, sources told ESPN's Dianna Russini.

Either side would have three days to submit an appeal in writing. In that case,

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell or his designee "will issue a written decision that will constitute full, final and

complete disposition of the dispute,'' per terms of Article 46 in the league's collective bargaining agreement.
