According to a report, Jadeveon Clowney, Houston Texans linebacker who underwent surgery two weeks ago for a sports hernia that caused him to miss minicamp, played with the injury during his last season at South Carolina, and price per head sportsbooks were very surprised to learn about this.
Pay per head services saw that earlier this month, Clowney said that his injury did not predate his time with the Texans, but during Thursday’s NFL rookie symposium, his agent told NFL.com another story.
“He thought about not participating in his pro day but went ahead anyway, and what a performance,” Clowney’s agent, Bus Cook, told the website.
Cook said that Clowney thought that he had a groin injury.
When news of the surgery was announced, the Texans said that the injury recently happened. Price per head sportsbooks saw that the player apparently backed up the statement, as he said that “everything feels great” after being drafted No. 1 overall by the Texans in May.
When he was asked about the injury earlier this month, he insisted that it wasn’t something he was dealing with before arriving to Houston.
“Just when I got here, they wanted to check me out, and I told them there was a little pain,” Clowney said. “They were like, we just don’t want it to linger over into the season, so we got it taken care of before anything happened.”
Clowney was able to pass all of his physicals before the draft, and pay per head services found out that his injury was not noted until OTAs, when Texans doctors diagnosed it as a sports hernia.
Regarding a timetable on a return, Clowney cannot say, and price per head sportsbooks wonder when he’ll be back in action.
“The pain, the injury’s getting better every day, day by day,” Clowney said earlier this month.
“Just looking forward to getting healthy and looking forward to training camp.”
