Texans outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney suffered yet another injury last week, although his latest is more minor, and significantly odder, than his previous medical troubles.

The 2014 No. 1 pick was at teammate D.J. Swearinger's house in Pearland, Texas, when Swearinger's pit bull bit Clowney's forearm, breaking the skin and sending him to the hospital, according to CBS Houston.

The hospital called the injury minor, but it is required to call the police for all animal bites. A report was filed, and Swearinger's dog was placed under a temporary home quarantine.
