No thank you.
That was my response when the news came out that maybe J.J. Watt is out for the season.
At least, that is the news from Adam Schefter.
Cardinals’ DE J.J. Watt will undergo what is now likely to be season-ending shoulder surgery, sources tell ESPN. No date set yet for surgery.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 28, 2021

That would be a massive blow for the Arizona Cardinals and for Watt personally who has dealt with injury issues for much of the back half of his career.
Until last season where he stayed healthy.
The Arizona Cardinals of course made the big splash of signing Watt this off-season and he had been everything the team needed and more.
While his stats were not the same eye-popping numbers he put up over his astounding start to his career, it was obvious the impact he was having on the Cardinals defense.
The Arizona Cardinals defense is ranked first in scoring defense, third in passing defense and playing at a Super Bowl level.
Now, they may have to do so without their emotional leader and someone who was an anchor along the line.
Let’s hope this is not accurate and that Watt can make it back either soon or at least for the Cardinals playoff run.
