Found May 10, 2013 on The Victory Formation:
PLAYERS: J.J. WattOwen Wilson
TEAMS: Houston Texans

Via The Victory Formation:

Texans fans, fear not.  Your star defensive lineman, perennial Defensive Player of the Year candidate, and all-around star player JJ Watt did not break his legs in a serious car accident. Or at least, not yet.

Yesterday, it was reported across multiple outlets that Watt had been seriously injured in a car wreck in Miami, including two broken legs.  However, Watt is perfectly fine.  He wasn’t even in Miami yesterday, and to the best of our knowledge, does not have two broken legs.

In today's Internet age, this kind of rumor is easy to start and even easier to catch on like wildfire. I mean, how many times has Twitter killed Morgan Freeman or Owen Wilson now? It's got to be at least five times each. Watt should be proud that his star shines brightly to even be considered the target of such a rumor — it's not just anybody that the Twitter rumor mill sets its gaze upon.

Watt took to his own Twitter account to dispel the rumors, explaining that he's fine and ready to go for the upcoming season. I'm sure quarterbacks across the NFL are just thrilled to hear the news.

Watt: Reports of injury in car wreck are fake

J.J. Watt's is not in Miami and his legs are not broken. Also, there is not a doctor somewhere out there waiting for a Facebook status to get a million likes before he can save a little girl, nor can you charge your iPhone with an onion and those photos of the 10-inch spiders in Iraq are fakes. The Internet, man. Fake media reports. I'm perfectly fine, relaxing after...

Colin Kaepernick says he played through injury last season
