Jadeveon Clowney leaves practice early, ices up, but Bill O’Brien says he’s OK


According to multiple published reports from Texans training camp, No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney left practice early on Saturday and was seen icing his lower body.

However, Texans coach Bill O’Brien later indicated to reporters that Clowney was OK.

According to Brian T. Smith of the Houston Chronicle, O’Brien said the team was merely being careful about not overworking Clowney as returns from surgery. Also, O’Brien indicated that Clowney hadn’t suffered a new injury.

“He’s out there and he wants to go every rep,” O’Brien said, according to the Chronicle. “And I’m sure just like all the guys, after seven practices I’m sure he’s a little sore and we’ll just continue to manage him.”

Tania Ganguli of reported Clowney was icing near a hip flexor.

Before receiving treatment, Clowney reportedly blocked a Shane Lechler punt. In short, it’s easy to see why the Texans are playing it safe with their multi-talented rookie.

    Guessing Texans fans are already worried about the guy being a bust…

    And they’ll watch Blake Bortles play well…

    All while they worry that O’Brien is just another product of Belicheating…

    It will be interesting to watch how it all unfolds. Bring on the season!

    Really wish the Texans would have traded down for Khalil Mack.

    Did they ever find a starting QB?

    Not a Houston fan by any stretch, but I hope he stays healthy. Curious to see what he can do in the NFL…especially next to Sir Swatt.

    I was going to make a comment like “if he was a Dolphin, idiots would be calling him Bust”. Looks like the idiots don’t just hate my Team.

    He has looked amazing in camp so far. They just need him to spend some time with JJ Watt to figure out how to take care of himself. God-given talent has gotten him this far but he needs to ensure he takes care of his body. He will be fine for the regular season and is going to destroy some people.

    Barr is wreaking havoc in training camp? Lol

    Should never have been a round 1 first pick. Might be a nice player but Texans sure could have used a guy like Bridgewater.

    Get used to it Texans.

  18. calvinthegreat82 says: Aug 2, 2014 3:41 PM

    He’s a lazy slob, gonna be a bust…

    I am constantly amazed at so many stupid comments people can make on here.

    Buyer Beware. Drafted “As Is.” No warranty stated. No warranty implied.

    Leave it alone, guys. Several reports from camp have said that he’s looking strong and fast, and has turned lots of heads. He’s come off his surgery and gotten right to it–how does this make him a bust? At least give him a couple games. I doubt all the haters have even watched any video of him in camp or listened to his teammates rave about how impressed they have been. Chill.

    When I saw him in camp he was running the wrong way and knocking into people during drills. That said, he is huge. Hope he can put it together.

    In other news: Jadeveon Clowney announced he will be the new spokesman for Mister Softee ice cream.

    Not overworking clowney? He took his entire senior year off.

    If there’s one team the jags actually can talk smack about, it’s Houston.
