Wilson told Rolling Stone magazine that Recovery Water was responsible for his speedy recuperation after he absorbed a vicious hit to the head by Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews in the NFC Championship Game. Wilson did not miss a play in the game.
"I banged my head during the Packers game in the playoffs, and the next day I was fine," Wilson said. "It was the water."
Wilson's agent, Mark Rodgers, clarified: "Well, we're not saying we have real medical proof."
Wilson also said he thinks the water aided in the miraculous recovery of a teammate from a knee injury -- a possible reference to safety Kam Chancellor, who suffered a sprained knee in the final practice before the Super Bowl but still played.
The company that produces the water, Reliant, says the water is enhanced with minerals and eloctrolytes to improve the "natural restoration process."
