Watt wrote, “That was my 2015 season. Believe it or not, the scariest was probably the staph infection.” How they took care of the infection was even more unbelievable.
“I thought he was joking at first. But then I could see in his face that he was serious and actually a bit panicked,” Watt wrote. “As it turned out, he saved me in a big way. At the hospital, they immediately put me on three hours of the strongest antibiotic IVs. I went straight from the hospital to the team plane and we flew to Jacksonville. Once we landed, there were two more hours of antibiotics that night and two more the next morning before the game. The medicine had completely drained me, but I played — and we won.”
Pretty remarkable that he was even able to play after taking care of the infection. He currently sits on the disabled list with a back injury but there’s no question Watt will be back, and better than ever.
