Last week, it was reported that Houston Texans rookie Jadeveon Clowney, the first pick of the 2014 NFL draft, underwent sports hernia surgery and was expected to be ready for training camp.
However, Clowney isn’t setting a time for when he will return, according to ESPN.com. Clowney said that he is planing to take it slowly.
“The pain, the injury’s getting better every day, day by day, Just looking forward to getting healthy and looking forward to training camp,” the first overall pick said.
Clowney also said how he didn’t want to play through a nagging injury all season, which is why he opted for surgery. Head coach Bill O’Brien also mentioned how they (the Texans) are confident he is on track.
So relax, Texans fans. Clowney is going to be ready soon, but he’s just not rushing his return, which is always the right move after surgery.
