The NFL has suspended Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson for six games for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy.

The decision, which was announced Monday (Aug. 1), was rendered by Sue L. Robinson following the NFL’s investigation of multiple women who filed civil lawsuits against Watson. He has since settled with all but one of them. Watson hired for massages, and the women have accused the QB of sexual misconduct or sexual assault.

Watson will be able to go back to the Browns in Week 7 against the Baltimore Ravens on Oct. 23.
