Jadeveon Clowney Injury Update: Bill O'Brien Confirms Surgery, Says Clowney To Miss 4-6 Weeks

The head coach of the Houston Texans met with the media this afternoon and confirmed the No. 1 overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft will miss the next month to month and a half of the season.

I suppose this qualifies as good news, considering the possibility the Houston Texans could have been without their No. 1 pick for much, much longer.

That news means the Texans are planning to be sans Clowney for at least their games against the Raiders, Giants, Bills, and Cowboys. Given that their Week Six game against the Colts is a Thursday nighter and the team has a mini-bye because of it, the Texans could well decide to rest Clowney until they travel to Pittsburgh for Monday Night Football against the Steelers on October 20th.

This is all, of course, dependent on how Clowney responds to the surgery and the rehab process. Nothing is written in stone.
