J.J. Watt shows off his Pro Bowl injury


It’s no longer spurting blood, thanks to four stitches that closed the wound.  And he still doesn’t quite know how it happened.

But it was the most memorable moment from the Pro Bowl, creating the impression that guys were indeed going harder than usual in what otherwise at times seems to be a game of glorified two-hand touch.

Texans defensive end J.J. Watt joined Pro Football Talk on Thursday to discuss his Pro Bowl battle scar and various other topics.  After meeting Watt in person, Erik Kuselias and I agreed that there is a list of guys on whose bad side we never want to be — and Watt just made the list.

    Same here. Guy had as good a season as any DL I’ve ever seen. He would usually make a game-changing, impact play not just every game, but every half.

    Test this kid already. He has gotta be on something. He wasnt this player in college. Now all of a sudden he is all-world. Not buying it. But you guys LOVE the kid so I KNOW most will turn their heads to this.

    dangernearing, I’ve been a Badger fan for many years and I disagree. I was 100% certain JJ would be a major NFL star and his performance is just what I expected at this point. He will get even better!
