Clowney says prison suit costume not a shot at McNair’s inmate comments

Houston Texans defensive end Jadeveon Clowney told his team director of communications Amy Palcic that the prison jumpsuit Halloween costume he wore Monday night was not a "shot" at owner Bob McNair's "inmates running the prison" comments.

Palcic told Fernando Alfonso III of the Houston Chronicle that Clowney said there "was no hidden meaning behind his Halloween costume. He was not taking a 'shot' at anyone. It was just that – a costume at a Halloween party."

Clowney posted a video of himself in the jumpsuit on Instagram Monday night.

Most of the Texans players kneeled during the anthem before Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks as a sign of protest against McNair's comments. The owner had a meeting with the players last weekend to address the remarks, but many players were unhappy with how the discussion turned out.
