Found January 28, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
PLAYERS: J.J. Watt
TEAMS: Houston Texans
Houston Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt was one of the players to take the Pro Bowl a bit more seriously this season, and doing so cost him a cut pinky finger. The potential Defensive Player of the Year sliced open his finger early in the contest, causing it to bleed “pretty good,” Watt told Nick Scurfield of HoustonTexans.com. "I didn’t even realize how bad it bled, but it bled pretty good. That’s football. It’s not fun if you’re not going to get bloody." @jjwatt — Nick Scurfield (@NickScurfield) January 28, 2013 Watt’s injury resulted in a blood-spattered jersey which he sported for the remainder of the contest. The injury wasn’t serious, but the blood was gushing out of the cut pinky for enough time to garner national attention. Watt said after sustaining the injury that football isn’t “fun if you’re not going to get bloody.” He certainly did his share of 'bloodying' the opponent during the regular season, accounting for 81 tackles, four forced fumbles, 20.5 sacks and 16 passes defensed for the Texans.

According to Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post, former NFL defensive tackle Warren Sapp had some interesting...

Who said they don’t play hard in the pro bowl? Don’t tell J.J. Watt that, he stood on the sidelines with blood pouring out of his hand. It looked like he almost had a finger ripped off as he sent a clear message to the NFL Commissionaire telling him they work hard at the pro bowl. Watt seems to play hard no matter what game he is playing in, I’m sure Watt would have rather...

Was the 2012 Texans’ Offensive Line That Bad?

There has been plenty to say about the Houston Texans’ offensive line, especially the right side of the 2012 line. There has been plenty of blame to push around for the Texans lack of success but we decided to look a little deeper into the offensive line from this past season. We looked back to the 2009 season to do a good comparison of the Texans’ offensive lines for the past...

NFL Defensive Player of the Year: Who Should/Will Win?

Withe the regular season in the books and only one game left to play, I figured this would be a good time to discuss the major awards for the 2012 season and who should win them, as well as who will. I’m a defense guy, so I think I’ll kick off this series with the defensive player of the year. First, the candidates. Aldon Smith, OLB, San Francisco 49ers After a stellar season...

Stop the insanity, end the Pro Bowl in 2014

The NFL held it’s annual All-Star event yesterday, hopefully for the last time. The Pro Bowl has been under scrutiny since last year’s blowout, lackluster event. Last year, the AFC trounced the NFC 59-41 enroute to scoring 100 total points. This year the NFC returned the favor, whipping the AFC 62-35 for the third highest point total in the history of the game. Stop this madness...
