Reports: Inactive Jadeveon Clowney storms out of stadium
The Houston Texans didn't have linebacker Jadeveon Clowney in uniform for Saturday's AFC Wild Card game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
According to a report by ESPN's Lisa Salters, the second-year player stormed out of NRG Stadium in Houston after being declared inactive for the game.
Per @saltersl, Jadeveon Clowney stormed out of Texans locker room and left stadium when deactivated. Thought was healthy enough to play.— Kevin Seifert (@SeifertESPN) January 9, 2016
However, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle is reporting that while Clowney did leave the stadium, it was just to deal with a family matter and he will return. Salters' also later reported the team expects Clowney to return by the opening kickoff.
Clowney hasn't played since Week 16 when he suffered a foot injury against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He practiced on a limited basis on Thursday, but didn't participate in the team's walkthrough on Friday. The team apparently thought it best to keep Clowney from action on Saturday.
