HOUSTON – Jadeveon Clowney was on the field with the Houston Texans as they opened camp on Saturday.
But the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft was limited as he continues to recover from surgery to repair a sports hernia.
Clowney, who had surgery on June 12, participated in the majority of the drills as Houston started camp with a 2½-hour practice on Saturday morning. But he was held out of 11 on 11 drills late in the workout.
He says he's feeling better, but isn't 100 percent yet.
The 6-foot-5, 266-pound former South Carolina standout is moving from defensive end to outside linebacker in defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel's system. Clowney says he already feels "very comfortable" with the move, but still has work to do.
