Report: Neck injury could sideline South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney for rest of spring

South Carolina All-American defensive end Jadeveon Clowney could miss the rest of the spring with a neck injury, reports CollegeFootballtalk.com. 

The Gamecocks will have their annual Spring Game this Saturday and it is not known if Clowney will suit up.

Clowney is expected to be a Heisman candidate this upcoming season. He was named the SEC Defensive Player of the Year in 2012 after setting school records with 13 sacks and 23.5 tackles for loss.

(ELLIS: What's left for Clowney to prove?)

From College Footballtalk.com:

In its Tuesday practice notes, South Carolina noted that Clowney has a neck sprain and his availability through the rest of the week is TBD.   And by TBD, we mean he’s probably done for what’s left of spring drills. From the release:

Jadeveon Clowney did not practice again on Tuesday and it’s uncertain whether he will practice again this spring, due to a neck sprain. “His neck and back is still stiff. Whether he goes another snap (this spring), I don’t care,” said [defensive coordinator Lorenzo] Ward.
