For most defensive linemen, an interception return is a recipe for some hilarious slapstick, but Jadeveon Clowney sprints right past all your #fatguyTD jokes. In the second quarter of the Texans game against the Patriots, a blind-side hit on Tom Brady turned into a gift for Clowney, who swiftly took the ball back for…
The play above isn’t the most awe-inspiring piece of defensive line play you’ll ever see, but given how quiet the start of former No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney’s career has been, you’ll have to forgive any Texans fans who want to make a big deal out of it this morning.
Texans pass-rusher Jadeveon Clowney had a pretty rough rookie season, which was erased almost entirely by a series of injuries. He's currently recovering from microfracture knee surgery, and now he has to deal with an arm that was savaged by teammate D.J. Swearinger's pit bull.
Houston Texans 2014 number one overall draft pick Jadeveon Clowney will be out for approximately nine months after undergoing microfracture knee surgery yesterday, according to Adam Schefter.

LB Jadeveon Clowney, the first-overall draft pick, will miss time as he recovers from a torn meniscus in his right knee suffered in the second quarter of yesterday's season opener. He told one teammate how it went down:

Each week during college football season we put the conventional polls to shame by ranking every FBS team from 1-125, by whatever standard we see fit. As always, last week's rankings were not consulted.
South Carolina's all-world DE Jadeveon Clowney didn't play this weekend with a muscle strain, or maybe bruised ribs, and also some bone spurs in his foot.
