He got the DAWG in him - Volume 5. JJ Watt is a super human.

JJ Watt is a generational player and a sure first ballot Hall of Famer. His resume speaks for itself. 3× NFL Defensive Player of the Year, Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year, 5× First-team All-Pro, 5× Pro Bowl, 2× NFL sacks leader, and NFL 2010s All-Decade Teamer.

He also has a laundry list of injuries dating back to 2012. Calf/hamstring/ strains, torn rotator cuffs/biceps/labrums/pecs, hip sprains, tibial plateau fractures, finger and elbow dislocations, plus herniated discs. You name it.

You can also add atrial fibrillation to the list. A-Fib is an irregular and often very rapid heart rhythm (arrhythmia) that can lead to blood clots in the heart. A-fib increases the risk of stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications. Watt went in at the end of the week to shock it back to normal, then played in Sunday's game. Incredible.

Just casually dropping that, and then quite literally playing his heart out on the field is purely inspirational. He finished the game with 3 tackles, but still, what he's been trough, JJ Watt has that DAWG in him.
