Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson received all the first-team reps during the portion of Friday’s practice open to the media and was listed as questionable to play against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.

Watson was wearing a harness on his shoulder and a compression sleeve on his right arm Friday. He has not played since bruising the rotator cuff in his right (throwing) shoulder in Week 3.

Coach Kevin Stefanski said he wants to see how Watson responds to the workload from Friday’s practice.

Watson, running back Kareem Hunt (thigh), cornerback Greg Newsome II (hamstring) and tight end Harrison Bryant (hip) are questionable for Sunday’s game and linebacker Sione Takitaki (hamstring) is out, per Stefanski.

PJ Walker, 28, would get the nod against the Colts if Watson is unable to play on Sunday. Walker completed 18 of 34 passes for 192 yards with two interceptions in Cleveland’s 19-17 upset victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

Watson, 28, has thrown for 678 yards and four touchdowns against two interceptions in three games this season while getting sacked 12 times.
