Houston Texans Injuries: Johnathan Joseph Talks Sports Hernia Surgery, Advice To Jadeveon Clowney

How awesome would it be for 2014 J-Jo to be like 2011 J-Jo? - Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Luckily for the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, he has a fellow South Carolinan with whom to discuss sports hernia surgery and recovery. See what Houston Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph has to say about the injury, the surgery, and Jadeveon Clowney's likely recovery.

Johnathan Joseph knows a thing or two about sports hernia surgery. It should therefore come as no surprise that he's spoken to Jadeveon Clowney about his experiences with the procedure, as detailed in this article by James Palmer of CSN Houston. Some of the takeaways from J-Jo, who is coming back from a toe injury himself:

-The same surgeon who operated on Joseph for his sports hernia(s) operated on Clowney.

-Joseph played with his hernia(s) for one full season and part of another, thinking it was just discomfort that'd resolve with rest.

-The rehab process is not fraught with complexity. J-Jo explains:

"It’s a pretty simple recovery stage to be honest with you," Joseph said. "You need more time than anything and exercises to strengthen those muscles back up. With those surgeries, within a week you’re back up running around. Two days out, I remember me walking a mile on the treadmill. It’s one of those things where you have to get your body back used to cutting and planting and driving and things like that."
