Though the Browns are still in limbo because they do not know if or for how long Deshaun Watson may be suspended, it is time to put the game faces on and begin preparing in earnest for the 2022 NFL season.
There is no indication that a Deshaun Watson disciplinary decision is coming today, per sources, with expectation of ruling next week at the earliest from former Delaware federal Judge Sue L Robinson, the jointly appointed disciplinary officer.

The first newsworthy injury of the 2022 season headlines the Saturday edition of Browns Nation news and notes.
1. WR David Bell On PUP List
The Browns’ wide receiving depth will be tested from the beginning of camp.
Rookie David Bell reported to camp but was put on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list with a foot injury that is expected to sideline him for a “couple of weeks” according to Mary Kay Cabot.

2. Nick Chubb’s Latest Weight Room Video Is Astounding
Nick Chubb is using the last days of the offseason to get stronger.
Video footage of him squatting 610 pounds at his high school gym has made its rounds on the internet.
.@NickChubb21 is stronger than you. 😳💪

Even better than that are the reactions of those watching the video including Chubb’s teammate Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah.
Owusu-Koramoah wrote what everyone else was thinking.
“Do we not got camp like Wednesday?”

Then again, Chubb does not seem like the kind of guy that rests; he is all about getting bigger, stronger, faster, and better year after year.
3. Uniform Talk
With other teams unveiling alternate helmets, it brings us back to the groundswell of demand for the Browns to wear orange jerseys in 2022.
— J Money💰 (@C_J_Money_) July 22, 2022
To be fair, this has been a standing request for the past few years, but could this be the year fans actually get them?

White helmets appear to be less popular according to those voicing an opinion on social media.
On that note, Happy Saturday Browns fans!
