    Probably from watching film at the same time as the Victoria's Secret fashion show.

    It happened in the third or fourth quarter in Buffalo. I saw him go off the field shaking it. I believe it was his left hand, if memory serves me correct. Looked like he was grabbing near the base of the thumb or 2nd metacarpal area (just above the wrist). He was only out for two plays. It happened on the bomb that Taylor threw to Watkins from inside their 20. The one he burned Joseph on. The throw was a duck, but Watkins had burned Joseph enough on a double move that he had time to redirect and come back to the ball.


    I may have posted about it in the game thread.
    (Edit: I didn't. Didn't think it was serious since he returned so quickly)

    Between his groin and his hand, he was definitely not 100% in Buffalo.

    I didn't see the article until just now.


    This definitely happened in the Buffalo game, and not at practice. I posted the specific play above. Wonder if I can find video.

    JJ is scouting on one and prospecting on the other.

    It just looks small next to his 298" screen.

    Or maybe he's uncomfortable with something in his house that would actually be taller than him so he decided on 2ft tall tree.

    You can see Watt's house from space.

    JPP's making an impact with his club hand, so there's hope for Watt, as long as he's adjusted to whatever grip he's losing. More worried about the groin.

    I'm sure Watt will work people over with his club and then we'll hear people talk nationally about how it's not fair or whatever.

    Broken hand. Injured groin. Victoria Secret and football on at the same time.

    I see what you did there, JJ. Could happen to any of us.
