Clowney has surgery, should be ready for camp

Posted:
HOUSTON -- Texans outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney had sports hernia surgery in Philadelphia on Thursday, coach Bill O'Brien said Friday.

Clowney flew to Philadelphia on Thursday to undergo an examination for a groin issue, then underwent the surgery. O'Brien said Clowney will be ready for training camp.

O'Brien said it hadn't been bothering Clowney for long.

"We just looked at it as, let's take care of it now, and he'll be ready for training camp," O'Brien said. "And we're looking forward to seeing him in training camp."

The Texans drafted Clowney first overall out of South Carolina last month. He's been a full participant in the team's voluntary offseason program, previously only missing practices NFL rules didn't allow him to attend when he was invited to the NFLPA's rookie premiere.

The outside linebacker reportedly had a nagging groin injury during a very impressive showing at his pro day in April.
