Monday, Feb. 5 was a very important day for Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, who ran for the first time since he had his ACL surgically repaired last year.

Watson shared this awesome moment with his fans on Twitter.

The young quarterback injured his knee in early November, cutting short what had been a historically good rookie season. He’s been keeping fans updated on his progress throughout the rehabilitation process and appears to be on track to start next season as the team’s franchise passer, without any issues.
