Deshaun Watson’s NFL disciplinary hearing is headed for a third day.

The hearing for the Cleveland Browns quarterback ended on Wednesday without any conclusion, according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. It will continue on Thursday, which will mark the third day Watson has appeared in front of independent arbitrator Sue Robinson, who is overseeing the case.

There is still no timeline for Robinson — who was jointly appointed by the league and the players association — to make her decision once the hearing ends. Watson is present for the hearing, which is taking place in Delaware.

Once it does, per Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot, Robinson can either request briefs from both sides or either side can agree to file them, which must be done within three days after the hearing ends.

The league is reportedly pushing for a suspension of at least a full year. Watson is sure to appeal the ruling should Robinson impose a year-long suspension.

Watson was traded to the Browns from the Houston Texans in March before he signed a five-year, fully guaranteed $230 million deal. He has been accused by two dozen women in civil suits of sexual assault and other inappropriate behavior during massage sessions. One of the women involved filed a lawsuit against the Texans earlier this week, alleging that they knew about and received complaints regarding Watson’s behavior.

All but four of the 24 women who filed civil lawsuits against Watson have settled with the quarterback. Watson did not face criminal charges, as two Texas grand juries declined to indict him earlier this year. He has denied the allegations against him.
