Shortly after outside linebacker Whitney Mercilus went down with an injury, cameras noticed Houston Texans defensive end JJ Watt on the ground and writhing in pain. Not a voice could be heard in the entire NRG Stadium.

During every stage of Watt’s injury, NBC made sure to have every single update and a camera nearby in case he even looked one way or the other. There were constant replays of his injury and countless shots following Watt into the locker room.

Then it got really weird.

First, cameras caught Watt hobbling on crutches to board an ambulance in the team tunnel. Then NBC gave an aerial shot of Watt in the ambulance leaving NRG, en route to a near-by hospital.

Social media couldn’t help but notice and they spoke out about it on Twitter:


The Houston Texans eventually announced that J.J. Watt suffered a tibial plateau fracture to his left leg and would miss the rest of the season.
