HOUSTON (AP) - Jadeveon Clowney was on the field yesterday with the Houston Texans as they opened camp, but the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft was limited as he continues to recover from surgery he had last month to repair a sports hernia. Clowney participated in the majority of yesterday's drills. He says he's feeling better, but isn't 100 percent yet.
