Neck injury could sideline Clowney for what’s left of spring

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. From the release:

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.

Clowney’s injury doesn’t sound like it’s anything serious -- this is more of a precaution -- and it’s not like he needs the reps. All the injury means is that Gamecock fans may not get to see one of the preseason Heisman favorites in action this weekend.
