Clay Harbor Explained Why He Left 'The Bachelorette' In A Series Of Tweets: "Definitely The Hardest Decision I've Ever Made"

This week's The Bachelorette certainly wasn't ~the most dramatic episode ever~ à la Chris Harrison, but one suitor did end up leaving on his own — and after receiving a group date rose, nonetheless! 

One minute, Becca Kufrin was enjoying a group football date (or pretending to enjoy it, because let's be honest, it's a group football date), and the next, someone had suffered a career-threatening injury. 

Yep, NFL free agent Clay Harbor hurt his wrist in a football game — on The Bachelorette.

So Clay left the show after explaining to Becca that he needed surgery (and that NFL cash). Then, when the episode aired on Monday, Clay took to Twitter to provide Bachelor Nation with both an update and an explanation. 

Look, it's great that he's okay — but if he would "gladly give [his] wrist for a chance at love," then why didn't he stay on the show?!

Anyway, my thoughts are with Clay's wrist and Becca's heart.
