Jadeveon Clowney injury: South Carolina star slowed by foot vs. Georgia

Clowney's foot was stepped on during Tuesday's practice, according to one of the ESPN announcers.

The South Carolina Gamecocks' All-SEC defensive end Jadeveon Clowney has been slowed down in the second half against the Georgia Bulldogs with what appears to be a foot injury. Clowney's right foot was stepped on during Tuesday's practice, according to the ESPN broadcast, and it is clearly bothering him whenever he tries to get any kind of rush against UGA's offensive line.

Clowney was flagged for not getting off the field in time and has limped off to the bench twice, receiving attention from South Carolina's training staff. He has been solid-yet-unspectacular against the Dawgs, though UGA has kept the ball away from his side of the field whenever possible. He sacked Aaron Murray earlier in the first half.

Clowney has not missed more than a handful of snaps thus far, playing through whatever kind of pain he may be feeling in his right foot. He has also appeared to be fatigued at times, though that is likely just a product of Georgia's up-tempo offensive attack on a warm afternoon.
