Texans Injury Update: Jadeveon Clowney to undergo surgery

Houston Texans outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney tore his meniscus in his knee during his NFL debut. The Texans won 17-6 against Washington Redskins

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported this evening that Clowney is expected to miss four-to-six weeks and will need to undergo surgery.  According to the same article, Texans coach Bill O’Brien would only say Clowney may miss some time, and that he may not.  Clowney left the game after landing awkwardly in the second quarter and did not return for the second half.  Before he left the game, Clowney had one tackle for a loss of nine yards. 

Clowney’s off season and training camp were not without injury; he had a sports hernia surgically repaired in June and missed two weeks of camp with a concussion he sustained on August 20.  While at University of South Carolina, Clowney was voted College All-American in 2012 and set records in quarterback sacks (13) and tackles for a loss (23.5).
