The surgery kept Watt from playing in the Pro Bowl, but that looks like it will be the only football activity that Watt misses as a result of the injury. Watt emerged from his log cabin on Monday evening to announce on social media that it was his first day back on a full training schedule after the procedure.
“Day 1 allowed back to full training since surgery,” Watt wrote. “At first I was frustrated. Now I embrace adversity #HuntGreatness”
Watt also broke his hand during the season, although that injury didn’t cost him any time on the field after he was outfitted with a club. That injury shouldn’t have any impact on his readiness for offseason workouts and it doesn’t look like the sports hernia will limit him either.
