Houston (CBS Houston) - Jadeveon Clowney sat out the third week of the preseason with what had been reported as a stinger, but Clowney confirmed to reporters Thursday that it was actually a concussion that kept him out.

“I mean it was just something that happened on the field,” Clowney said.

The number one overall pick said it wasn’t his first concussion. Once concussed, NFL players enter a concussion protocol that takes a minimum of three days to complete.

“Like a week. A week and a half. Almost two weeks.” Clowney said when asked how long it took him to get cleared. He will play Sunday against the Redskins.

The Texans were very cautious with Clowney during the preseason as he worked his way back from offseason sports hernia surgery. He only played it two games, but showed flashes in both. He’ll enter the season as a starting outside linebacker, taking the position away from former first round pick Whitney Mercilus.

In 2013, Clowney missed South Carolina’s spring game in part because of a reported concussion.
