Fear not, Texans fans. Your favorite defensive lineman, Defensive Player of the Year candidate, and all-around star player JJ Watt did not break his legs in a serious car accident.
Yesterday, it was reported through multiple outlets that Watt had been in a serious car wreck in Miami, resulting in two broken legs. Oddly enough, Watt is perfectly fine. He wasn’t even in Miami yesterday and does not have two broken legs.
In today’s Internet age, this kind of rumor is easy to start and even easier to catch on like wildfire. I mean, how many times has Twitter killed Morgan Freeman or Owen Wilson now? It’s got to be at least five times each. Watt used Twitter to dispel the rumor and let fans know he was alright.
