    Texans’ Jadeveon Clowney has sports hernia surgery; out until training camp

    Texans’ Jadeveon Clowney has sports hernia surgery; out until training camp

    Texans rookie defensive end Jadeveon Clowney had sports hernia surgery, coach Bill O’Brien said Friday at NRG Stadium.

    Clowney, the No. 1 overall pick of the 2014 NFL draft, was dealing with a groin injury. O’Brien said Clowney was evaluated in Philadelphia and the team decided the best option was surgery. He’ll miss next week’s mandatory three-day minicamp and is expected to return for training camp, which begins in late July.

    O’Brien said Clowney hadn’t been dealing with the injury for long. The Texans decided it was best to immediately address the issue, which was why surgery occurred Thursday.

    “It was the best thing for J.D. and the best thing for our team and the best thing for our organization,” O’Brien said.

    Clowney is expected to return to Houston on Friday afternoon.

    “He’ll be ready to go for training camp,” O’Brien said. “That’s about all I’ll say about that.”

    Clowney was limited during the NFL Combine and dealt with a groin issue during South Carolina’s pro day.

    It sounds like this shouldn't be a big problem for Clowney, but groin injuries can be tricky. It'll be interesting to see if there are any lingering affects down the road.

    Wonder how long the rehabbing would be from that kind of surgery. You're dealing with the core muscles.

    So was he injured or not? I thought he insisted in the pre-draft process that injury wasn't a factor during his season, but now he's saying he was injured.

    Echoing some points Rotoworld brought up, it's odd he wasn't flagged at the Combine for this injury if he had it at SC, and waiting until two weeks ago to have surgery will cause Clowney to miss Houston's OTA and minicamp and possibly the start of training camp.
