HOUSTON — Jadeveon Clowney, the No. 1 overall pick in the draft by the Houston Texans, is recovering from sports hernia surgery.
Coach Bill O'Brien disclosed the procedure and said Clowney had been struggling with a groin issue. O'Brien said the standout from South Carolina was sent to a specialist in Philadelphia. The surgery was performed Thursday. O'Brien expects Clowney to be ready for training camp, which begins in late July.
