J.J. Watt told reporters that he broke his left hand during practice yesterday but plans to play against the New England Patriots on Sunday. Why? Because Watt is a warrior, that’s why.

Watt’s week has been a study in the highs and lows of life. One day you’re enjoying the Victoria’s Secret Show, the next you’ve got a broken hand. What are the chances?
