The Houston Texans used their No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft on defensive end Jadeveon Clowney out of South Carolina. They’re hoping Clowney can be a star on an already talented defensive line opposite of J.J. Watt, but he is still trying to make a comeback from an injury.
“I’m going to try,” said Clowney, according to Brian T. Smith from the Houston Chronicle. “That’s the goal, to try to get back. But I don’t know for sure right now. I’m going to let (the trainers) decide.”
“It’s still day by day,” Clowney added. “Just taking one day at a time, letting the trainers decide.”
Missing the first couple days of training camp wouldn’t certainly be the worst thing in the world, but as a rookie coming into a new league, with a new team, the more time on the practice field he can get, the better.
