2014 Houston Texans Training Camp: Did Jadeveon Clowney Get Hurt Today?

It would appear something happened at the joint practice between the Broncos and Texans today, but details are vague. Battle Red Blog tries to decipher what happened to Jadeveon Clowney.

No, that's not déjà vu you're feeling, friends. While the breathless tweets out of Denver today sound awfully familiar to a story you heard earlier this month about Jadeveon Clowney, this is new(s). Down the rabbit hole we go!

Those reports formed the basis for this story, which provides some perspective on Clowney's situation. In other words, don't go getting your affairs in order just yet.

Trainers removed Clowney's shoulder pads, and he pointed at the left side of his neck as he sat on a training table. Clowney remained in the tent for the remainder of practice but did not actively receive treatment from the medical staff, a sign that whatever ailment sidelined him might not be too serious.

But wait! They're hiding Clowney from the media!

Clowney was quickly ushered onto a bus immediately after practice ended and was not made available for interviews.

And Bill O'Brien's acting cagey! He must be hiding something!

So either it's a relatively minor injury that we shouldn't freak out about in the absence of additional information, or the Texans have initiated a high-level conspiracy to conceal the true severity of Jadeveon Clowney's injury.

You choose which side you're on.
