Breakfast: J.J. Watt makes announcement

Posted Feb 26, 2018

J.J. Watt's annual charity softball game will take a 1-year break.

For the first time since 2012, there won't be a J.J. Watt Charity Classic.

The popular softball game, which the 3-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year started in 2013, is on hiatus for a year. In a Sunday night Tweet, Watt explained he'll instead use the time to heal his injured knee and to focus on continuing hurricane recovery efforts and after-school programs.

Watt's softball game has raised millions for his J.J. Watt Foundation, which funds after-school programs.

Earlier this month, the defensive end was named the Walter Payton Man of the Year. He picked up the prestigious honor for his efforts in helping raise over $37 million for Hurrican Harvey relief. 

Watt injured his knee in Week 5, and was placed on injured reserve for the rest of the 2017 campaign.

In 2013, he held the inaugural J.J. Watt Charity Classic at Constellation Field in Sugar Land. In 2016, the game was moved to Minute Maid Park.
