Arizona Cardinals pass rusher JJ Watt has had a pretty unique week when it comes to his health. The veteran defensive end was ruled questionable to play with the Carolina Panthers on Sunday due to a calf injury, but announced on Sunday morning he had been dealing with something more serious this week.

Just after noon ET, Watts went to twitter to reveal that a personal information report on him would be released on Sunday.

I have just been told that someone has released some personal information about me and this is being reported today.

I went into A-Fib on Wednesday, my heart got back into rhythm on Thursday and I’m playing today.

That’s it.

Afib is atrial fibrillation, which is a type of arrhythmia or abnormal heartbeat, according to Johns Hopkins medicine. It’s caused by faulty electrical signals that cause the atria to contract irregularly and faster than normal. Symptoms include dizziness, fatigue, and weakness, and Afib can lead to serious complications such as blood clots, heart failure, or stroke.

After missing the season opener against the Kansas City Chiefs, Watt has recorded a sack in each of the last two games. The 33-year-old did not train on Wednesday and Thursday but was a restricted participant on Friday.
