Aug 13 - 11:20 AM

The Houston Chronicle reports Jadeveon Clowney is sidelined with "minor soreness" in his knee.

Aug 11 - 2:55 PM

Texans OLB Jadeveon Clowney (undisclosed) missed his fifth straight day of practice Thursday, but is expected back "as soon as next week."

Clowney was originally believed to be getting an off day on Sunday, but hasn't practiced since. Minor or not, another ailment is the last thing Clowney needed after two injury-plagued campaigns to begin his career. The Texans need him on the field more than ever with J.J. Watt recovering from back surgery.

Jadeveon Clowney is practicing at 265 pounds this summer, and has appeared "visibly lighter and quicker."

Clowney played at 284 pounds last season. "He's a guy that's gotten better," coach Bill O'Brien said. "I think he's added a couple of pass rush moves. He's getting better every day." Clowney's ever-troublesome health has taken on even greater importance with J.J. Watt recovering from back surgery.
Aug 4 - 2:48 PM

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.

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

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.
