Deshaun Watson's hearing before the NFL and NFL Players Association's jointly appointed disciplinary officer is scheduled to begin Tuesday, according to sources.

Sue L. Robinson will listen as the NFL expects to push for a "lengthy" suspension for Watson while the NFLPA defends the Cleveland Browns quarterback.

Watson has been accused of harassing, assaulting or touching 26 women during massage appointments when he was with the Houston Texans.

He was at one point facing 24 civil lawsuits that accused him of sexual assault and inappropriate conduct during massage sessions. He has agreed to settle 20 of those suits.
