Houston (CBS Houston)-As number one overall pick Jadeveon Clowney works back to full form from his sports hernia surgery the Texans are being careful with him.

Clowney wasn’t straying away from contact but he was held out of some drills, likely as a precaution. He did participate in 7-on-7 drills and full team drills. He also saw contact in special teams drills but there were some linebacker specific drills as well as some team drill he sat out.

When he did particpate in drills there were some “wow” moments from the rookie.

Clowney blew past an offensive tackle in team drills tackling a running back. Luckily for his teammate he didn’t follow all the way through as he pulled up after initial contact. If this particular rep had been played all the way through without Clowney gearing down, there would have been flashes of his famous Michigan play from the Outback Bowl.

Another impressive Clowney moment came on a special teams drill where the linebackers ran to a spot and blocked an oncoming tackler. Clowney stayed low and dominated his man at the point of attack without allowing him to pass. Linebacker coach Mike Vrabel complimented Clowney’s effort on the repetition.

The limited contact is likely a pre-caution and not a cuase for concern as he looked to be healthy during all the drills he participated in today.
