    Wasn't his first time:

    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Has anyone confirmed the date on the Clowney/casino pic? Asking because I can confirm he was at Nugget week before camp.

    I think he's saying the pic might have been taken weeks ago.

    Dumb fans.

    Just like the idiots who kept trolling about Will Fullers "small hands"

    There is an underlying issue. Missing time due to injuries, particularly the knee. We can't help but always be on pins and needles with him.

    Any reason you responded to my post in particular? I said I only care if O'Brien cares. I might care if teammates care. Otherwise I don't. It's a non-issue as long as it's a non-issue to them.

    I think the issue to others is how it appears. A guy who can't stay healthy doesn't join team on trip for first preseason game. Coach says he will stay in Houston to rest up. Instead he's out of town in a casino while they're putting in work. I get that it doesn't look good, even if I personally don't think it's a big deal.

    Only way that its an issue is if he was supposed to be in Houston... He's a grown ass man if he wants to spend his free time at a casino thats fine just as long as it was free time.

    When his lower body is injured? Yes, or go to a friend's place. What do you think a doctor means when he says, "Just stay off of it for a few days."

    I don't care when athletes' do in their free time. Go to a club, strip club etc. However, if a guy is injured with the hope to get back on the field asap then he shouldn't be going out to places that involve a significant amount of walking or travel.


    Would you say that to your boss if he caught you at the beach when you called in sick to work that day?

    got a feeling that defense might be a problem this year

    Can somebody explain his exact injury and the actual limitations he has?

    I always just presumed they would make something up to try and keep him as healthy as possible for real games.

    is it the same knee from the surgery?
    I always took it that he was going to miss practices and it's just pre season. though, some coaches get touchy with not practicing. talkin about pre season, main.

    Yeah, that doesn't sound like something concrete or like it should keep him on bedrest.

    Like I said, sounds more precautionary.

    Well that's exactly what they've said about it, it's precautionary and that if it was the regular season he'd be playing. Basically they don't want to risk anything in a worthless preseason game.
