Arizona Cardinals’ J.J. Watt tweets he’s set to play days after having heart procedure

CHARLOTTE, NC — Arizona Cardinals defenseman JJ Watt tweeted Sunday, hours before he was due to play the Carolina Panthers, that he contracted atrial fibrillation on Wednesday and needed a heartbeat back on Thursday.

He sent the tweet at 12:14 p.m. ET. The Cardinals were scheduled to kick off at 4:05 p.m. ET.

Watt, who is in his second season with the Cardinals, said he will play Carolina.

Watt said he tweeted the information because news of his heart condition and the procedure was leaked.

Watt missed Wednesday and Thursday practice for what the Cardinals listed as a “calf/illness” in their injury report.

According to the Cleveland Clinic, atrial fibrillation is “an irregular heart rhythm that begins in the upper chambers of your heart.”
