Jadeveon Clowney Appears To Injure Right Leg Or Hip At Practice, Texans Not Concerned

The first pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, Jadeveon Clowney, exited training camp today with an injury. Cue the hysteria from Texans fans, whether it's warranted or not.

In the rich tradition of hysterically reporting that Texans players have been carted off the practice field (remember reading about how Andre Johnson was "carted off the field" during training camp a few years ago and everyone promptly losing their minds, only to later find out 'Dre merely rode a cart off after dislocating a finger?), Twitter tells me that Jadeveon Clowney exited the practice field today after suffering an apparent right leg or hip injury. AND HE LEFT ON A CART.

The tweets tell the story. Kind of.

While injuries, no matter how minor, are never good news, I'm going to hold off on wandering into traffic until we get additional word from Clowney or the Texans that the injury is worth panicking over. You, however, are free to shriek and lament as you see fit in the Comments below.
