With Deshaun Watson suspended for the first 11 games of the 2022 season, the Cleveland Browns are forced to look down on the current QB depth chart.

Primary replacement Jacoby Brissett is widely expected to take over the team’s starting role, but a new cryptic report from NFL insider Josina Anderson has league fans talking.

“Keep an eye on how things go with QB Josh Rosen in Cleveland…” Anderson wrote on Twitter.

Could this mean that Rosen is moving up the depth chart? Or is he more likely to be knocked out before Tuesday’s 53-man roster deadline?

Josh Rosen is currently listed as the third-string quarterback option behind Brissett and former fourth-round pick Joshua Dobbs.

The NFL world took to Twitter to react to this cryptic report.

“Uh why? He’ll be their 3rd string at best, freed at worst. What are we watching?” asked a fan.

“That probably means he’s cut, right? Because if that hints at anything else, it’s going to be a long, cold, dark 11 weeks in Cleveland,” another added.

“Anything not directly cut or released would shock me,” added another.

Rosen got off to a good start in his preseason debut for the Browns, going 6/7 for 56 passing yards. But in Cleveland’s loss to the Eagles last weekend, he experienced some of his typical struggles – completing just 7 of 20 passes.
