Clowney sat out Saturday’s scrimmage and Monday night’s practice before returning to the field on Tuesday.
Spurrier on Tuesday said he made the statements about playing without his star after a communication issue came up.
“Jadeveon’s doing fine, Bruce is doing fine, Damiere is doing fine,” Spurrier said after Tuesday’s morning practice. “They had a communication problem, they didn’t know they were supposed to be out here watching practice, so I’m the dummy on that. Now they know they’re going to be out here watching practice. We had a communication problem and we’re ready to go.”
Clowney had 13 sacks last season and was named the Southeastern Conference’s defensive player of the year.
