Houston Texans' star defensive end JJ Watt will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn pectoral on Sunday. You can read the details regarding that report here.

Watt has already undergone surgery to repair the torn pectoral and took to Instagram to update fans regarding his status on Tuesday evening. He's clearly being a good sport, despite the unfortunate season ending injury.

Here's what he had to say in his caption.

"Everything went smooth with the surgery, thank you for all of the kind words," Watt said in his Instagram post. "If I tweet anything crazy during the Stros [Astros] game tonight, just blame it on the pain meds."

That's quite a positive update Watt had to share regarding the surgery. As he points out in his caption, "Everything went smooth in the surgery."

It looks like Watt will spend his recovery cheering on another Houston team. The Astros have a chance to win the World Series tonight if they can win game 6 against the Washington Nationals. Watt has been a long time supporter of all Houston sports including both the Astros and Rockets.

For the Texans, they'll have to adjust without him this season. Houston faces the Jaguars on Sunday.
