Jadeveon Clowney hopes to be cleared by start of camp

No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney hasn’t been cleared to resume activity after sports hernia surgery, but he hopes it won’t be long.

He said he hopes to be cleared by next Saturday, when the Texans begin training camp.

I’m going to try,” Clowney said, via Brian Smith of the Houston Chronicle. “That’s the goal, to try to get back. But I don’t know for sure right now. I’m going to let [the trainers] decide. . . .

“It’s still day by day. Just taking one day at a time, letting the trainers decide.”

Clowney had surgery in mid-June to correct a problem that had bothered him throughout the pre-draft process. He said he was returning to Houston this weekend, and would be on hand when rookies report Monday.

While it’s more important to heal fully than to win the perfect attendance prize, Clowney has plenty of work to do to learn to play outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense, something he didn’t do in college.

    I can’t wait to see Houston’s front line in action. I just hope Clowney’s the real deal.

    He couldn’t even get drafted without requiring major surgery. Hopefully he doesn’t blow out a shoulder putting on his Texans letterman jacket.

    I believe that the Heidis’ third round pick spells his name as “Scott Crichton,” Poet. But don’t feel bad. No one is likely to hear much from him under either spelling. Mini will be wishing they had taken Carl Bradford instead.

    Will they consult the Force (plate) to tell them when he is good to go?

    “Do. Or do not. There is no try”, Clowney.

    I don’t care when you are “ready”, just average 14+ sacks per year. That is all.

    Anthony Barr, the less talented Dion Jordan. Lmao what a joke of a franchise.

    Who has more regret right now: Texans for picking this loser at 1 or bengals for picking Johnny? I think it has to be the texans. Probably the biggest disappointment in the first round, and the season hasn’t started yet. I hope he turns it around, but coming off a bad college season, then needing surgery in the off season, and now missing training camp–it doesn’t look good.

    Once he’s a 100 % ready and able to play, Crennel is going to unleash one hell of a front 7. Clowney is going to be an awsome player. He is too big and fast for anyone to block him at the LB position. Watt is going to have a field day this year after Clowney causes so much confusion in the backfield.
