Texans DE Jadeveon Clowney confident about healing process

|(4/4/15) Texans defensive end Jadeveon Clowney believes that he is recovering well from microfracture surgery, reports ESPN. Clowney thinks that he can get back to being the player he was prior to the surgery.
"I'm very confident about that," Clowney said, speaking for the first time since his Dec. 8 surgery. "This rehab's going to help me a lot to get back towards playing."
Clowney was forced to stay off his feet for almost two months following the procedure on his knee.
"Oh man, I thought it was going to be real rough but I had my family around me a lot so it kind of went by fast being at home," he said. "The minute they told me I could walk I took off."
"Rehab is (a lot) tougher than playing," Clowney said. "You gotta be in there earlier than everybody, you've gotta leave later than everybody. That's a lot tougher than playing."
In four games played as a rookie, the former first overall draft pick in 2014 registered seven tackles.
