Texans Injury Update: Jadeveon Clowney to be placed on IR

Houston Texans rookie Jadeveon Clowney has been placed on IR to allow for further repair of his torn meniscus, says Dan Hanzus of nfl.com.



Clowney was selected first overall in the 2014 NFL Draft by the Houston Texans, and was called such things as "freakish" and "once-in-a-generation" by various scout writers, although character concerns were raised. People presumed Houston would be able to use Clowney alongside MVP candidate J.J. Watt to form a serious pass rush presence if motivational issues could be addressed.

Clowney was never able to fully participate in that rush, starting two games and playing in four (seven of his first nine were missed due to his initial meniscus injury). He registered seven tackles on the season.

The Texans will instead continue utilizing third-year defensive end Jared Crick at left defensive end in Clowney's absence.
