Being a professional football player certainly has its perks money wise, but the injuries that come with it can be downright painful.

The Tennessee Titans came out alive with a big overtime win over the Houston Texans in Week 6, but they had a huge loss when Taylor Lewan suffered a torn ACL and was slated to miss the rest of the season.

The Pro Bowl offensive tackle took his thoughts to Twitter.

“I wanted to let everyone know I got an MRI today. I Tore my ACL yesterday against Houston. Don’t feel sorry for me, I’m going to handle this rehab like a Pro and come back better than ever. Thank you @Titans fans for your support. #NoBadDays,” Lewan wrote.

This week, Lewan took to his Instagram story and showed off his bloody scar after having surgery.

Lewan, the 11th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, started in 83 out of 88 games played for the Titans.
