Deshaun Watson handed six-game suspension over sexual misconduct accusations
Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson has been handed a six-game suspension by the NFL for violating the league's personal conduct policy following accusations of sexual misconduct.
The NFL has been holding an independent investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct by 24 massage therapists.
Former federal Sue L. Robinson issued the ruling on Monday, and the players' union have already agreed to stand by the decision, although they, Watson and the NFL have three days to appeal.
Watson has maintained he is innocent throughout the process. Two grand juries in Texas declined to pursue criminal charges against Watson earlier this year.
