BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Deshaun Watson's first practice of training camp with the Browns was unusual: indoors, helmetless and brief. He did take snaps with the starters. It's unclear if it will stay that way. Cleveland's controversial quarterback practiced Wednesday as the Browns began preparing for the upcoming season still not knowing if Watson will be suspended by the NFL for violating its personal conduct policy. Watson has been accused by two dozen massage therapists in Texas of sexual misconduct, and the three-time Pro Bowler faces possible punishment from league disciplinary officer Sue L. Robinson, who has been weighing his case for weeks.
