Double-tapping on the sideline? Not a good way to make your fans happy.
Houston Texans outside linebacker, and No. 1 overall pick, Jadeveon Clowney decided to take a social media break while on the sidelines during Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Sports Radio 610’s Nick Wright in Houston saw Clowney’s “like” only an hour after the game’s kickoff. Wright then posted this image on his Twitter:

Clowney is currently out with a knee injury, much to the distaste of Texans fans.
According to Bleacher Report, many are upset by Clowney’s unwillingness to play despite his injury. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that there is disappointment due to Clowney’s reluctance to play: “What they want is for him to start showing some maturity and learn to play through some of these ailments…they are frustrated with their No. 1 overall pick,” Rapoport said.
However, Texans head coach Bill O’Brien claimed that the staff is anything but disappointed in Clowney.
“I don’t know anything about these reports, I just know what I see…he had a little setback with the flu and hopefully will be back ready for Cleveland. He’s had a couple injuries here and a concussion…I think they world of Jadeveon Clowney. I don’t think there’s anyone here that’s frustrated with [him],” O’Brien told ProFootballTalk’s Mike Florio.
Clowney is expected to play in the Texans game against the Cleveland Browns on Nov. 16.
