Houston Texans star JJ Watt informed his fans Tuesday evening of his successful shoulder surgery.
During Sunday's game against the Raiders, Watt suffered an injury to his pectoral muscle. He left the game with about 5 1/2 minutes left in the second quarter after he spent a few minutes in the medical tent.
Following the injury, Watt tweeted that he was absolutely gutted about missing the rest of the season.
This game can be beautiful and it can also be brutal. Absolutely gutted that I won’t be able to finish the season with my guys and give the fans what they deserve. I truly love this game and can’t stand letting you guys down. Thank you for all of the thoughts & well-wishes.— JJ Watt (@JJWatt) October 28, 2019
