J.J. Watt’s drive to raise money for Hurricane Harvey relief passed a remarkable milestone Thursday, pushing past the $10 million mark, the Texans defensive end tweeted.
Absolutely incredible, he wrote in a post accompanied by a video. The $10 million represents 50 times more than Watt’s initial goal of raising $200,000.
In the video accompanying the news, Watt thanked those who have donated and said some of the money already is being used to help those affected in Texas.

We’re filling the semi trucks as we speak. Many people have donated their trucks, their time, donated food, water, clothing, generators, things like that, Watt said. We’re going to get those trucks down here by this weekend. … The tentative plan is Sunday we’re going to have a bunch of my teammates help me out in a few different locations around town to be determined, and we’re going to hand out those supplies.

We’re basically trying to find, A) the safest areas we can get to — obviously we don’t want to put anybody in danger — but then, B) the areas that need it the absolute most. So, we’re going to try and set up — literally, it’s going to be open up the back of a semi truck and start handing out water, start handing out clothes.
A team can never have enough depth on the defensive line (especially with the recent injury history of the Bears), so it will be shocking if Robertson-Harris isn’t on the final roster.
The Leos get little respect as a returning playoff team with Jim Caldwell, but there’s plenty of reason to keep respecting counterpart Bruce Arians. Detroit’s defense doesn’t have answers for Carson Palmer, Larry Fitzgerald or David Johnson. Matthew Stafford faces a much trickier pressure package and secondary, especially when Ameer Abdulllah and the running game are contained. The Cards’ desert drive to Ford Field is fruitful. Cardinals win 27-23 and cover the spread.
