J.J. Watt will miss Thursday Night Football matchup against Green Bay Packers

NFL: Houston Texans at Arizona Cardinals Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

The Green Bay Packers will be missing a number of star players in their matchup with the Arizona Cardinals tomorrow night on Thursday Night Football.

Now, the Arizona Cardinals will be missing one star, as J.J. Watt will miss the game with a shoulder injury.

Watt left the game a little earlier than the other starters in his revenge matchup with the Houston Texans, then popped up on the injury report this week.

While we do not know the extent of the shoulder injury, we do know it will cost him at least one game and it is an important one.

Watt has been very good in his first seven games with the Cardinals. He has made 16 tackles, including five tackles for loss and one sack, while also producing two passes defensed and on forced fumble.

Oh, and he already has 10 quarterback hits on the season.

Let’s hope Watt is back in a hurry, as the Cardinals enter another crucial stretch of games.
