Jadeveon Clowney Is Hurt Again, This Time By Way Of Dog Bite

Evan Wilt Contributor

Picking right up where he left off, Jadeveon Clowney has already caught the injury bug for 2015.

This time, Clowney was sent to the emergency room in Pearland, Texas after being bitten by Houston Texans’ teammate D.J. Swearinger’s pit bull. According to CBSHouston, the bite occurred early in the morning of March 4. 

The injury is supposedly not serious, but Swearinger’s dog broke the skin on Clowney’s right arm, sending him to the hospital for precautionary measures.

CBSHouston reported that a member of the Pearland police department characterized the incident as a “minor bite.”

Clowney, who played in a fraction of the games of his rookie year with the Texans, only recorded seven tackles. After being drafted as the No. 1 overall pick in 2014 to play along side All-Pro defensive end J.J. Watt, Clowney spent most of the year on the sideline after a week one knee injury. Clowney never recovered fully enough to be effective and Watt went on to be the league’s defensive mvp.
