Clowney sidelined with neck injury

South Carolina All-World star Jadeveon Clowney missed Saturday’s scrimmage with a neck injury. Furthermore, it looks like he’ll miss the rest of spring – this week – with a stiff neck and back. The Gamecocks’ spring game is Saturday.

But even before his injury, Clowney was very unlikely to even suit up for the game because the risk of injury is simply too great, even if the spring game is solely for the fans.

According to, Clowney didn’t participate again in Tuesday’s practice, and it’s unclear whether spring is over completely for him.

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 Ward.

While Lorenzo Ward may not care, you can bet multiple doctors, coaches and support staff are checking on Clowney’s status night and day.

Superman is vulnerable, it seems, but it sounds extra precautionary and nothing serious.
