Jadeveon Clowney left the Texans’ practice early on Saturday, dealing with what appeared to be a leg injury, according to the Houston Chronicle and the Houston Texans website.

Houston coach Bill O’Brien told reporters after practice that the former South Carolina star and the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NFL draft didn’t tweak anything, but that the team was trying to keep him on a “pitch count.”

“We’re just trying to manage him,” O’Brien said. “He’s coming off of surgery and we’re just trying to manage him. He’s out there and he wants to go every rep. And I’m sure just like all the guys, after seven practices I’m sure he’s a little sore.”

Clowney, who underwent sports hernia surgery in June, blocked a punt before his early exit.
