Less than a month ago, Texans No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney dropped quite an interesting nugget when he said he had played his final season at South Carolina with a sports hernia and that he even considered not participating in his pro day because of it.

He underwent groin surgery last month, and though Houston coach Bill O'Brien said Clowney would be ready for the start of training camp, it sounds like Clowney isn't 100 percent sure that's the case.

“I’m going to try,” Clowney said Friday, via the Houston Chronicle. “That’s the goal, to try to get back. But I don’t know for sure right now. I’m going to let [the trainers] decide.”

Clowney was in New York on Friday, but he plans to return to Houston on Saturday and to be ready when the Texans rookies report on Monday.

“It’s still day by day,” Clowney said. “Just taking one day at a time, letting the trainers decide.”
