Texans OLB Jadeveon Clowney showcased a "bulkier" upper body at OTAs.
He improved his physique this offseason by working closely with strength and conditioning coach Craig Fitzgerald. Clowney enjoyed an injury-free spring, missing just one practice while battling the flu. "When he's been on the field, he's been pretty disruptive, pretty impactful," said GM Rick Smith. "Hopefully, he's had his share of [injuries] and he'll be on the field consistently." Clowney's immense talent has never been up for debate. But after missing 15 of his first 32 NFL games, Clowney faces real concerns about his durability. Jun 26 - 10:56 AM

Texans OLB Jadeveon Clowney's foot issue was a Lisfranc injury, but did not require surgery.

Clowney says he is 100 percent healthy. "I feel great," Clowney said after Monday's OTAs session. "I got healthy enough to be where I want to be." The injury held Clowney out of Week 17 and Houston's humiliating Wild Card loss. The No. 1 overall pick of 2014 draft has appeared in just 17 of a possible 32 games. He's flashed enough when on the field that he can't yet be considered a bust, but 2016 is a crossroads year for the 23-year-old pass rusher.
May 23 - 3:11 PM

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said OLB Jadeveon Clowney will not need offseason foot surgery.

Clowney missed the Texans' regular season finale and Wild Card loss after injuring his foot Week 16 against the Titans. Including the playoffs, he has now played in just 17 of a possible 33 games since being taken No. 1 overall in the 2014 draft. Clowney has flashed some of his elite ability when on the field, but he needs to put together a healthy season.
Jan 27 - 5:58 PM

Texans OLB Jadeveon Clowney (foot) refuted a report that he left NRG Stadium Saturday because he was angry the team deactivated him for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Chiefs.

Clowey admitted to being angry but said it had nothing to do with the team's decision not to activate him. "I knew I wasn’t going to play," said Clowney. "I didn’t walk out on anybody." Clowney did leave the stadium briefly but it was only to give his mother tickets to the game. The former No. 1 pick earned the ninth-highest 3-4 outside linebacker grade out of 53 qualifiers on PFF this season. Including the playoffs, Clowney has only been active for 17 of 33 games since entering the league in 2014.
Jan 10 - 10:48 AM

Texans declared OLB Jadeveon Clowney, TE Garrett Graham, S Rahim Moore, DL Jeoffrey Pagan, LB Justin Tuggle, QB B.J. Daniels, and OT Andrew McDonald inactive for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Chiefs.

Clowney was ruled out prior to warmups. He'll have a chance to return in the Divisional Round if the Texans advance. John Simon will play a bigger role in his place.
Jan 9 - 3:08 PM

Texans OLB Jadeveon Clowney (foot) has been ruled out for Saturday's Wild Card matchup with the Chiefs.

ESPN's Ed Werder reported the Texans were still mulling his status this morning, but Clowney was never likely to play. Whitney Mercilus and John Simon should play larger roles with Clowney sitting.
Jan 9 - 1:41 PM

ESPN's Ed Werder reports the Texans are still undecided on OLB Jadeveon Clowney's (foot, questionable) ability to play Saturday against the Chiefs.

It would be surprising if Clowney suited up after missing Friday's practice, but it appears the Texans are still considering it. Whitney Mercilus and John Simon would play larger roles if Clowney sits.
Jan 9 - 10:58 AM

Texans OLB Jadeveon Clowney (foot) didn't practice on Friday and is listed as questionable for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Chiefs.

Clowney returned to a limited practice on Thursday but it must not have gone well. That puts his status in doubt for Saturday's playoff opener. John Simon would likely take over at outside linebacker if Clowney sits.
Jan 8 - 3:26 PM

Texans OLB Jadeveon Clowney (foot) resumed practicing on Thursday.

DC Romeo Crennel said Clowney got in a "light" session. Clowney is being termed "day to day," but has a shot at suiting up against the Chiefs. If Clowney does play, he probably won't be healthy enough for his full complement of snaps.
Jan 7 - 2:44 PM

Texans declared OLB Jadeveon Clowney, WR Cecil Shorts, CB Corey Moore, ILB Justin Tuggle, OG Oday Aboushi, TE Garrett Graham and DE Jeoffrey Pagan.

Clowney is week to week. He doesn't seem particularly likely to suit up for the Wild Card round.
Jan 3 - 11:42 AM

Texans OLB Jadeveon Clowney (foot) has been ruled out for Week 17.

His regular season ends with 40 tackles and 4.5 sacks. Clowney avoided structural damage in his foot, but his postseason availability is uncertain.
Jan 1 - 2:19 PM

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said there is no structural damage to OLB Jadeveon Clowney's left foot.

O'Brien called Clowney "day-to-day." Clowney's left foot collapsed while he was engaged with a blocker late in the Texans' blowout win over the Titans. He was spotted wearing a walking boot on his left foot after the game. With little chance of losing the AFC South at this point, it would not be surprising if Clowney sat out the season finale.

Texans OLB Jadeveon Clowney was spotted with a walking boot on his left foot after Sunday's win over the Titans.

Clowney went down early in the fourth quarter when he appeared to turn his left ankle while engaged with a blocker. Clowney said he will be "all right," but the Texans will likely take it slow with the injury-plagued sophomore. Houston has all but clinched the AFC South. It will become official if the Bengals beat the Broncos Monday night.
Mon, Dec 28, 2015 09:12:00 AM

Texans OLB Jadeveon Clowney exited Week 16 against the Titans with a foot injury.

The nightmare continues for the injury-plagued sophomore. Clowney looked like he turned his ankle while planting in the fourth quarter. He limped off the field on his owned but was quickly ruled out. The Texans were winning 34-0 when the injury occurred, so it is possible Houston was just playing it safe with the former No. 1 overall pick.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 03:38:00 PM

Texans OLB Jadeveon Clowney (back) is probable for Week 11.

Clowney practiced in full all week. He'll return Sunday, but could have his snaps limited. Clowney has played in just two games over the last month.
