Jadeveon Clowney could miss season opener, will not miss season opener

Jeff Blake-US PRESSWIRE

Steve Spurrier said this. No word on whether he said it with a straight face.

So South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is suddenly questionable for the South Carolina Gamecocks' season opener against North Carolina, according to Steve Spurrier:

That's a far cry from the report on Clowney's shoulder from Saturday, when defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward said it was just a bruise and that he'd be fine. As Kendall alludes in his tweet, this is probably more about lighting a fire underneath a player who was probably enjoying a few days off from practice rather than a real live injury concern.

And now, a comprehensive list of things more likely to happen than Jadeveon Clowney missing the North Carolina game:

Literally everything. Have you seen him? He can't be hurt.

See you on Aug. 29, Jadeveon.
