Houston Texans star J.J. Watt came off injured reserve and played Saturday during his team’s Wild Card win against the Buffalo Bills. Afterward, he tweeted a couple of messages to his fans, noting playing through the injury was “worth it.”

Watt not only suited up but had a positive impact for the Texans in their overtime victory over the Bills, and his sack on Josh Allen was one for the highlight reel.

His decision to play wasn’t without potential consequences, either.

If the Texans keep winning and advance this postseason, you have to imagine that Watt will have something to do with it.
