J.J. Watt may have plastic surgery on his nose this offseason


The Texans have been bloodied figuratively several times this season and defensive end J.J. Watt has been bloodied literally.

Watt suffered a deep cut on the bridge of his nose early in the season, requiring six stitches to close, and the wound has opened at various other points this season after a violent collision with the opposition. It’s made for some good pictures of Watt as a gridiron warrior, but his mother isn’t quite as fond of the look. That’s led Watt to consider plastic surgery to close up the laceration once and for all this offseason.

“Once it gets times to heal up and rest, it goes back to pretty normal,” Watt said, via the Associated Press. “We’ll see what happens. If it doesn’t heal itself, then I will look into getting it fixed.”

The injury hasn’t stopped Watt from producing on the field and the surgery shouldn’t have any impact on his football career. His future family gatherings probably won’t be so enjoyable if he decides to ignore his mother, however.

    Glad to see Watt & Russ Wilson do well. As a Badgers’ fan that has seen a lot of great potential NFL talent fizzle out.

    They are solid guys, that should become the NFLs next greats.

    Great player: love the unstoppable motor and the blood too. Plays the game the way it should be played.

    J.J. Watt and Michael Jackson — brothers in nasal surgery!

    JJ should wait until his career is over to get it fixed up. He will just break it again at some point. Besides his nose could become the new symbol that football is back in September, just like John Ritchies forehead was.

    Just rock the Rip Hamilton face shield under his helmet.

    Nah, it’s J.J. Watt. He will have steel reinforced concrete surgery on his nose.

    J.J. figures the nose is the only thing stopping him from being an international heart throb, so he’s going to do something about it.

    That’s fine, but what will he do with the Cro-Magnon 4-Head?

    john ritchie never wanted plastic surgery… I thought defensive players were supposed to be tougher?
