Watson had an MRI on Monday that revealed he had a displaced fracture to the glenoid in his right shoulder and team doctors determined he required immediate surgery to avoid further structural damage, the Browns said in a statement.
According to the Browns, the 28-year-old Watson is expected to make a full recovery in time for the 2024 NFL season.
Another MRI on Monday revealed Watson also suffered a high-ankle sprain during the Ravens game.
