Clowney out of mini-camp due to sports hernia surgery

Jadeveon Clowney will miss next week's mini-camp with the Houston Texans after having surgery.

According to the Texans, Clowney missed organized team activities on Thursday and Friday. Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said that the former South Carolina Gamecocks star experienced an issue with his groin, but he went into greater detail on Clowney's absence.

"We sent him to Philadelphia to have it checked out by specialists there," O'Brien said. "We decided the best thing for J.D. and the best thing for our team, and the best thing for our organization was to have sports hernia surgery. So he had that yesterday, he'll be back this afternoon."

O'Brien does expect Clowney to return and be ready to go in time for training camp.
