Report: Neck injury could sideline South Carolina’s Jadeveon Clowney for rest of spring
The Gamecocks will have their annual Spring Game this Saturday and it is not known if Clowney will suit up.
Clowney is expected to be a Heisman candidate this upcoming season. He was named the SEC Defensive Player of the Year in 2012 after setting school records with 13 sacks and 23.5 tackles for loss.
(ELLIS: What’s left for Clowney to prove?)
From College Footballtalk.com:
In its Tuesday practice notes, South Carolina noted that Clowney has a neck sprain and his availability through the rest of the week is TBD. And by TBD, we mean he’s probably done for what’s left of spring drills. From the release:
Jadeveon Clowney did not practice again on Tuesday and it’s uncertain whether he will practice again this spring, due to a neck sprain. “His neck and back is still stiff. Whether he goes another snap (this spring), I don’t care,” said [defensive coordinator Lorenzo] Ward.
