A Cleveland Browns player has been punished by the NFL for 6 games. For breaking the NFL’s personal conduct rules, wide receiver Michael Woods of the Browns has been suspended for the last six games of the season.
Not the largest loss, as Woods tore his Achilles tendon while working out with Browns QB Deshaun Watson over the offseason, and he is already on the non-football injury list. Woods was never going to play.
According to NFL insider Tom Pelissero, the “incident” that happened last summer that resulted in a breach of the NFL’s personal conduct policy is what led to the suspension.
Browns WR Mike Woods, who is out for the year due to injury, has been suspended for the next six games of the season, which he will serve while on the NFI list.

Prior to his injury, the Browns had hoped that Woods would play a bigger part in the 2023 campaign.
A sixth-round selection in 2022, Woods was selected from the University of Oklahoma. After sitting out the first five games of the 2022 season, he made his NFL debut against the New England Patriots in Week 6.
During the previous season, the 23-year-old saw action in 10 games with the Browns. He collected 155 offensive and 85 special teams snaps, resulting in five receptions for 45 yards on 10 targets.
