Houston Texans outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney had arthroscopic knee surgery on his left knee, causing him to pull out of the Pro Bowl. This is not his right knee where he had microfracture surgery after an injury-riddled rookie season in 2014.
This "MINOR" procedure is needed by many NFL players after a grueling regular season that results in wear and tear. Clowney played with the knee issue plus wrist and elbow issues for majority of the season but those injuries did not slow him from putting up some impressive work for the season.
Clowney was selected to his first Pro Bowl and selected to the Sporting News All-Pro team for posting 40 total tackles, 6 sacks and 2 pass deflections while disrupting teams' entire offensive game plans all season.
There is little doubt from the organization that Clowney will be ready to go when training camp arrives in August.
