Houston Texans LB/DE Jadeveon Clowney has been out since the first week of the regular season because of a knee injury, but he’s been drawing closer and closer to making his return in the last couple of weeks.
Clowney was listed as questionable heading into last Monday’s game against the Steelers, but the team opted to leave him inactive when they took the field in Pittsburgh. Clowney said Thursday, via John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, that he would be surprised if things played out that way again this week.
While his knee remains sore, Clowney said that he feels ready to “push through it” and return to the lineup against the Titans this weekend.
Coach Bill O’Brien termed Clowney’s chances of playing “decent” earlier this week and also said that it wasn’t a guarantee that Clowney would take a spot with the starters upon his return to week.
