Jadeveon Clowney said he would try to be ready for the opening of the Texans’ training camp.

The No. 1 overall pick of the 2014 NFL draft met his initial goal.

Clowney was in uniform and participating with the team at 8 a.m. Saturday, when the Texans kicked off their 2014 camp at the team’s training center near NRG Stadium.

A large crowd applauded as Clowney ran onto the practice field with no noticeable limp.
