Clowney upset he couldn't play Saturday, not mad at team
HOUSTON (AP) Jadeveon Clowney says he was simply frustrated about his foot injury and not angry with the Houston Texans when he was seen visibly upset after being declared inactive for the team's playoff game against the Chiefs.
Clowney did not speak to reporters Saturday after reports surfaced that he stormed out of the stadium upon learning he was not playing.
On Sunday, the top overall pick in the 2014 draft said he did not leave the stadium.
He says: ''I was frustrated I didn't get to play. I think anybody would have been and I watched the game here. Stayed here and watched the game.''
Houston lost 30-0 to the Chiefs in the wild-card round of the playoffs. J.J. Watt injured his groin in the game and will require surgery.
