No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney has met his first goal in Texans training camp, getting back on the field.
He was out there for Saturday morning’s workout, after coming back from offseason sports hernia surgery.
“I feel good,” Clowney said, via Brian Smith of the Houston Chronicle. “Get everybody back out here, back learning (the) playbook. Just look forward to getting back into and mixing. Looking forward to the season.”
Of course, there are varying degrees of “good,” as Clowney hedged when asked if he’d be ready for the full-contact portion of practice Monday. Coach Bill O’Brien said he was working with restrictions.
“I don’t know the percentage but I know I ain’t 100 percent,” Clowney said.
Getting him closer to that point will be important for the Texans, as they’re going to have to be dominant on defense this year to make up for an offense full of question marks.
