According to ESPN, Watt tore his pectoral muscle. The injury happened when he tackled Raiders running back Josh Jacobs.

“This game can be beautiful and it can also be brutal,” Watt tweeted after suffering the injury Sunday. “Absolutely gutted that I won’t be able to finish the season with my guys and give the fans what they deserve. I truly love this game and can’t stand letting you guys down. Thank you for all of the thoughts & well-wishes.”
