    Houston Texans linebacker Jadeveon Clowney, who underwent surgery for a sports hernia two weeks ago that caused him to miss minicamp, played with the injury during his final season at South Carolina, according to a report.

    Clowney had said earlier this month that the injury did not predate his time with Houston, but his agent told a different story to NFL.com during Thursday's NFL rookie symposium.

    "He thought about not participating in his pro day but went ahead anyway, and what a performance," Clowney's agent, Bus Cook, told the website.

    Cook says Clowney thought he was dealing with a groin injury.

    When the surgery was announced, the Texans said the injury had happened recently. That statement was seemingly backed up by Clowney, who had said "everything feels great" after being drafted No. 1 overall by Houston in May.

    When asked about the injury earlier this month, he insisted it wasn't something he dealt with before arriving in Houston.
