Scary news is emerging this morning from the Houston Texans training camp at the Houston Methodist Training Center.
About an hour ago, number one overall draft pick Jadeveon Clowney was seen being carted off the field, holding an ice pack to his hip area.

Clowney has been on the trainer's table for a few minutes. Has an ice pack on what looks like the hip flexor area. #Texans

There was no word on the severity of the injury, but head coach Bill O’Brien told The Houston Chronicle’s Brian T. Smith that the team was just trying to manage Clowney’s soreness:

Clowney played all of his final college season with a sports hernia, and underwent surgery this offseason. We will have more as it develops.
