I thought only mere mortals suffered neck injuries. Apparently I’m wrong about that.
South Carolina’s spring game will take place this Saturday. Whether or not star defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is participating remains to be seen, however.
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.
It doesn’t sound serious, more like one of those abundance of caution type situations. And I really like Lorenzo Ward’s “do I look like I give a shit” bravado:
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.
Still, I bet somebody’s checking with the team’s doctor on Clowney’s progress. More than once.
