Jadeveon Clowney Update: Clowney Not At Practice Thursday

New, comments

The possibility of the Texans' first overall pick playing in the upcoming Monday Night Football game in Pittsburgh just got slimmer. Read below to see the latest status of your Houston Texans and their next opponent.

It's unlikely that we'll see Jadeveon Clowney return to action on Monday night if he is not at practice to prepare for the Steelers.  If by some chance Clowney does get activated for the game, it's going to be in limited action as he gets back up to speed.  We are all anxious to see him return, but we may have to wait yet another week (or more), based on today's news.

Sports Radio 610 reports:

"If he were to play against Pittsburgh, it certainly wouldn’t be for 70 plays," Bill O’Brien said Thursday. "We’ve got Friday, Saturday, Sunday, obviously all day Monday to determine right up until game time what we think his ability to play in the game is and then we go from there."

I don't think we'll see much of a contribution from Clowney until after the bye week.  Hopefully he gets some snaps between now and then and comes out full speed for the rest of the season.  Maybe Bill O'Brien is playing a great game of strategy, but I doubt it.  Share your thoughts on the matter in the comments below.
