Wait a minute – Superman’s vulnerable?

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.

    He’s certainly been a pain in my neck, and other places.

    Checking on his progress? I bet Lorenzo is peeling grapes for him.

    This is almost certainly no big deal. Clowney has become that rarest of creatures, the rival player that I actually root for when he’s not playing Georgia. Not only do I hope this is nothing serious, I’m certain that it’s not. That said, I’d love for him to aggravate it in Week 1 in such a way that causes them to put him on the shelf for Week 2. Otherwise, Murray’s neck and back might be a bit stiff for Week 3…

    Be interesting to see how far Lattimore is dropped in the uncoming draft because of the uncertainty from his significant looking 2012 injury. After all the attention Clowney has received since the bowl (we knew it long before), he might try to glide through this last season before putting himself on the market….who could blame him? The media has already challenged why he shouldn’t just go straight to the NFL, seeing a ten million dollar drop in value by a former teammate could do wonders for our OL’s chance for success in September.
