BEREA, Ohio (WKBN) – The Cleveland Browns have announced that rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson will start at quarterback against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Head Coach Kevin Stefanski announced to reporters on Wednesday afternoon.
Thompson-Robinson replaces Deshaun Watson who will miss the rest of the season with shoulder and ankle injuries.
Thompson-Robinson will be making the second start of his NFL career. He was under center earlier this season in a loss to the Baltimore Ravens. He passed for 130 yards and threw three interceptions.
Thompson-Robinson was originally a fifth-round selection by the Browns in the 2023 NFL Draft out of UCLA.
