Clowney carted off Texans practice early with ‘sore’ leg

Houston Texans rookie Jadeveon Clowney was carted off the field during practice on Saturday, but head coach Bill O’Brien says it’s nothing to worry about. 

The No. 1 overall pick’s right leg appeared to be bothering him and he was seen icing the injury before leaving early for the day. 

"We’re just trying to manage him," O’Brien told the Houston Chronicle. "He’s coming off of surgery and we’re just trying to manage him. He’s out there and he wants to go every rep. 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."

Clowney underwent sports hernia surgery in June, but he’s been willing to participate at full-strength during camp.  

"We try to measure or count how many reps he has in practice," O’Brien said. "He wants to be in every drill, so we’ll just continue to do that."
