J.J. Watt announces on Twitter his season is over

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Just a couple of hours after exiting Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders with what appeared to be a pectoral injury, J.J. Watt's season appears to be over.

Watt took to Twitter Sunday evening and said he is "gutted" that he can't finish the season with his teammates.



He left the game Sunday with five minutes remaining in the first half and went straight for the medical tent. Watt had three tackles before exiting the game.
