Clowney sat out the Texans' regular season finale but probably could have played through the injuries if the game had meant something.

Jadeveon Clowney (elbow, wrist) is out for Week 17 against the Titans.

He didn't practice this week. With Houston already locked into the No. 4 seed, there was no reason for Clowney to risk further injury in Sunday's meaningless regular season finale. He should be well-rested for next week's playoff opener. Clowney earned his first Pro Bowl nod this year and has been one of the better outside linebackers in the league when healthy.

Jadeveon Clowney (elbow, wrist) did not practice Wednesday.

Clowney has been dealing with elbow and wrists injuries all month, but he has only missed one game. With the Texans locked into the No. 4 seed, however, it would not be a shock if they decide to rest him in the meaningless season finale.

Jadeveon Clowney (elbow, wrist) said he will play this week against the Colts.

Clowney sat out last week's game against the Packers, but he is on track to play against Indy after returning to practice Thursday. "I feel good. I feel good enough to go," Clowney said. "Yeah, I'll be out there." With CB Johnathan Joseph expected to sit with an injury to his ribs, the Texans will need Clowney to get after Andrew Luck on Sunday.

Jadeveon Clowney (elbow, wrist) returned to Texans practice Thursday.

It's far from a guarantee that he will return against the Colts, but it at least gives him a chance. If Clowney does play through his pair of injuries, he'll probably be on a snap count.

Jadeveon Clowney (elbow, wrist) was downgraded to out for Week 13 against the Packers.

Clowney was originally listed as questionable after practicing on a limited basis all week, but it looks like he did not even travel with the team to Green Bay. Already without J.J. Watt, losing Clowney is a big blow to the Texans defense, especially with Aaron Rodgers on the other side.

Texans OLB Jadeveon Clowney (elbow, questionable) said he will play this week.

"I'm good," Clowney said. "I'll be ready to go Sunday." Clowney was limited in practice all week with an elbow injury, but there was never much doubt about his availability. The former No. 1 overall pick only has two sacks this season, but he has been a disruptive force all year.

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.

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.
