The Houston Texans decided to use their first overall draft pick in 2014 on South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney. The superstar defensive end battled through some injuries during the 2013 season, underwent sports hernia surgery during offseason workouts.
He had been participating in training camp workouts, but has been restricted ins some activities. Things took a turn for the worst on Saturday for Clowney and the Texans.
From Houston Chronicle:
Texans rookie Jadeveon Clowney exited practice Saturday, dealing with what appeared to be a right leg injury.
…Clowney lifted his right leg several times and ice was applied. He eventually left practice on a cart.
The extent of the injury is unknown yet, and being taken off on a cart might be more of a precaution than a sign of severity. Until more is known though, Texans fans certainly will be praying for good news.
It would be a big blow for the Texans line to lose Clowney for the rest of training camp and into the beginning of the season. As a rookie it is important for him to be on the field learning the defense and playing alongside his teammates before being in mid-season game situations.
