LOOK: Texans' J.J. Watt surprises a boy hit by a car with new jerseys

Three-time Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt hasn't played since September due to a back injury and won't partake in the Texans' playoff game against the Raiders on Saturday, but he's still keeping his fans happy.

As ESPN's Sarah Barshop first reported Tuesday, Watt surprised 8-year-old Noah Fulmer, who was hit by a car, with new jerseys when he came out of surgery.

It began with a tweet, when someone notified Watt that the boy cried when his jersey was cut off. Watt replied, saying he would bring the boy another jersey.

And he followed through on his promise.

Watt, who had back surgery (again) in September, admitted in November that he actually considered retiring. Thankfully, he added that he doesn't intend on stepping away after spending time recharging.
