Jadeveon Clowney Struggling with Complicated, Less Common Knee Injury

Bleacher Reports - Under the Knife—December 3, 2014

Bleacher Reports' Under the Knife reports on Houston Texans' linebacker Jadeveon Clowney's recovery after undergoing an arthroscopic knee procedure. According to the article, Clowney's recovery continued following the originally projected 4 - 6 week recovery time.

The article features Danyal H. Nawabi, MD, FRCS, a sports medicine surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery to further support why an injury like Clowney's may have varying recovery time. The article references Dr. Nawabi's study in the American Journal of Sports Medicine that "uncovered a median return-to-play time of seven weeks for elite soccer players following a partial lateral meniscectomy. Medial operations, on the other hand, required just five weeks."
