The Houston Texans defense may receive a boost with the return of outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney.

Jadeveon Clowney doubtful – Texans linebacker doubtful for Monday night
Houston Texans outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney is expected to return from a knee injury soon, and reports say that it could be as soon as Sunday.
The 2014 first overall pick has not played in an NFL game since his debut in the Texans’ season opener against the Washington Redskins since suffering a torn meniscus.
Head coach Bill O’Brien said that Clowney has a great shot of playing on Sunday, which would make the Texans defense even more dangerous.
Here is a tweet from the Pro Football Talk Twitter account releasing the news on Clowney.
