In partnership with the NFL in the UK


Jadeveon Clowney hospitalized after brutal dog bite

Published 9 Comments

Houston Texans star Jadeveon Clowney has had his fair share of adversity to face up to in his first year in the NFL, and today has just provided the football universe another reason to ridicule the defensive end.

Clowney was rushed to hospital today, according to reports, after one of his teammate's dogs bit him on the arm. It was revealed the bite "pierced" the skin, before he was taken to a nearby emergency room.

Luckily for Clowney, it was then determined that the dog had already had all of his shots. The injury is said to be "minor" and ProFootballTalk has reported that the dog has been placed under quarantine.

"The dog has been placed under home quarantine, according to the police in Pearland, Texas," ProFootball Talk reported.

Lieutenant Patrick Savage added, “Animal control handled it as a standard call. Standard procedures were followed by our humane department and the animal control officer who went out there.”

Furthermore, the dog's owner - Texans player DJ Swearinger - tweeted to clear up the situation.

Clowney looking for a big 2015 

Clowney was selected first overall in last year's NFL draft, but during his rookie season he injured his knee and was forced to undergo microfracture knee surgery.

The powerful defensive star is currently recovering well from the knee injury and is looking to put his injury issues behind him in a bid to become a dominant force in the NFL.

Should Clowney finally get fit and healthy and recover from his knee injury and tame dog bite, Texans fans will be excited about his potential to wreak havoc during the 2015 NFL season. With arguably the best defensive player in the NFL beside him in J.J. Watts, Clowney has a great chance to answer his critics this year.

But what do you think Texans fans? Will Jadeveon Clowney ever live up to his potential with Houston? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
