BEREA, Ohio — Deshaun Watson and the Browns offense worked against the defense for the first time in camp, with Watson throwing touchdown passes in the end zone to Nick Chubb, Harrison Bryant and David Njoku.
Watson, taking all first-team reps as if a potential suspension wasn’t imminent, completed two 7-on-7 drills and made numerous attempts against Donovan Peoples-Jones, Demetric Felton on a deep ball and others .
Jacoby Brissett took the second team reps, with Josh Dobbs being third and Josh Rosen fourth.
In the 7-on-7 red zone, Watson rolled to the right and found Harrison Bryant deep in the end zone. Safety Ronnie Harrison Jr. knocked the ball off fullback Johnny Stanton into the end zone on a pass from Brissett.
Watson and Brissett also did a good job at 11v11, but without pads. The first day in the pads is Tuesday.
Fans arrive on Saturday
After three straight practices closed to the public, the Browns will welcome fans to camp for the first time on Saturday.
“It always does (feeling different with the fans),” Stefanski said. “It’s done. The players love to play in front of the fans. We’re delighted to have (the fans). This will be my first training camp where it’s a real open camp and you have both sides of the pitch with fans I think it was a bit more subdued with just one side and that kind of thing. I’m looking forward to it. I’m looking forward to that energy that it brings, because it increases the energy that players then have.

Anthony Schwartz on a daily basis
Stefanski revealed Friday that Schwartz only suffered a sprained knee in training Thursday and is day to day. He said the injury was not serious and that Schwartz would be ready for the opener in Carolina.
Schwartz participated in the morning walkthrough with a wrap on his left knee, but skipped the afternoon session. It’s a setback for Schwartz, but not as bad as it could have been.
Watson’s suspension could be announced early next week.
It was not part of a Friday news dump and could be released early next week by NFL disciplinary officer Sue L. Robinson. At that point, the NFL and the NFL Players Association will decide whether they wish to appeal, unless they agree not to do so before the penalties are announced and Robinson’s word is final.
Decision on Watson could come early next week
The Browns claimed safety Jovante Moffatt off waivers via the Jets
The Browns welcome Moffatt (5-foot-11, 213 pounds), who has spent the past two seasons here after signing with the Browns as a 2020 undrafted free agent from Middle Tennessee State. He spent most of the season on the Browns practice squad in 2021, but played in five games. In his two seasons, he played in 14 games and recorded 10 tackles. Moffatt hails from Union City, Tennessee and is officially in his third season.
Denzel Ward takes part in post-workout catch-up drills
Ward is doing everything he can while on the PUP list with his foot injury. After practice, he worked alongside his defensive teammates on catch-and-tuck drills.
“He’s still there,” defensive coordinator Joe Woods said. “He always comes to all the meetings and we have walkthroughs and teach guys techniques. I think it just gives other guys the ability to get reps – MJ Emerson can get more reps and different combinations on the court. It helps, and we know we’ll get Denzel back in a few weeks.
