Quotable Monday: Houston Texans player played through injury


Jadeveon Clowney had sports hernia surgery two weeks ago and is expected to be ready for training camp. The first overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft also revealed something impressive that showcases his toughness last season.

Per the Houston Chronicle, Clowney told NFL.com’s Gill Brandt that he actually was able to play through the sports hernia injury last season.

Clowney was capable of passing physicals, but the injury was clearly nagging and the doctors did not want to risk his injury getting worse, which is why he was forced to have the surgery. Bus Cook, Clowney’s agent said that Clowney that about “not participating in Pro Day, but went ahead anyway, and what a performance.”

Clowney commented on the topic, stating that “I just wanted to get it taken care of.”

For Texans fans, we can only be happy that he didn’t get seriously injured any time before the draft, and that he should be 100% by the time the season kicks off in nine weeks.
