J.J. Watt donates $10,000 to high school player in coma

HOUSTON (AP) J.J. Watt has donated $10,000 to a Houston-area high school football player who is in a coma after suffering a brain injury in a playoff game last week.

Grant Milton, a senior at The Woodlands high school, was injured Saturday during a game in Waco and was rushed to a hospital, where he remains in a coma.

A Go Fund Me account was set up to raise money for his medical care. Watt, the Houston Texans star defensive end, signed his name to the donation on the Go Fund Me page with a note that read: ''If there's anything that I can do to help, please let me know. Sending my best wishes to Grant and the entire Milton family.''

Watt, who is out for the season after back surgery, also tweeted a link to a story about Milton's injury.
