Houston Texans star defensive end J.J. Watt proved yet again that he’s one of the classiest guys in the NFL with a recent tweet regarding an injured kid.

A woman tweeted a photo of her son to Watt and said, “@JJWatt here is my boy… He has a tibial plateau fracture. He says ‘I’m just like JJ, momma!'”

Watt quickly tweeted back, “Ahh man I’m so sorry to hear that, but love to see him smiling!! Tell him that this is just a test to see how tough we are and we’re gonna come back stronger than ever!!! #OneDayAtATime (and DM me his GamerTag, I’ll play some XBox with him to help pass the time!)”

There are plenty of reasons to dislike the NFL or criticize the league. J.J. Watt is not one of them.

He’s nothing but pure class, and proves it over and over again.
