Jadeveon Clowney bitten by dog owned by teammate that stole his own truck

Dog bites man? Now there's a story!

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Last week, Jadeveon Clowney had to go to a Pearland, Texas emergency room after he was bitten by South Carolina and Houston Texans teammate D.J. Swearinger's pit bull.

Swearinger, you may remember, was last in the news because he was suspected of stealing his own truck. (Good news for Swearinger: he's unlikely to face charges.)

Clowney's first year and offseason in the NFL did NOT go well. He was really hampered by injuries -- really dogbit, you could say. Now he can add what police call a "minor" dog bite that broke the skin of his right arm. The dog has been quarantined, as per procedure with animal bites. Swearinger and his brother are complying with all quarantine agreements.

In the meantime, someone put Clowney in a glass case until the season starts. Do they still sell Popemobiles? Maybe he should look into one of those.
