The Bachelorette's Clay Harbour Breaks Silence on Decision to Leave the Show

Professional NFL player Clay Harbour is opening up about his tough decision to leave The Bachelorette and take himself out of the running for Becca Kufrin‘s heart.

If you missed the episode, Clay and the contestants were playing a game of football during a group date. Clay ended up injuring himself after scoring a touchdown. Clay then made the decision to leave the show to undergo surgery and hopefully play again this year in the NFL.

“I want to thank everyone for the love and support! Definitely the hardest decision I’ve ever made but I believe everything happens for a reason. I am working hard to get back on the field and turn this negative into a positive,” Clay tweeted. “I have to thank the whole @BacheloretteABC family for an amazing experience in hindsight I don’t regret my decision to come on and would gladly give my wrist for a chance at love.”

“That being said the show was filmed months ago and after a tough rehab I am finally ready to play some football. I look forward to finding a team and seeing you all on NFL Sunday’s. Thanks for all thoughts and prayers!,” he added.

Clay is currently a free agent in the NFL and looking for a team.
