Houston Texans Injury News: Jadeveon Clowney Will Not Play Against Jaguars

New, comments

The Texans defense is really, really, bad, and it's about to be even worse.

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The Texans' abysmal pass rush of J.J. Watt doing everything and Jadeveon Clowney almost doing something is going to miss that something this Sunday. As Texans fans know, Clowney was in a walking boot the day after Thursday Night Football last week. During practice this week, he was absent from the field, spending his time on the sideline.

Now reports are circulating that, yes, Clowney will miss this week's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.  ME-OW.

Get ready for a lot of everyone's favorite below replacement level pass rusher, John Simon, who will get the start on Sunday, and for Whitney Mercilus to actually play on third down. Hooray? This doesn't seem like the week where the Texans' 29th ranked pass rush improves.

Oh, and Quintin Demps and Nate Washington are out as well.

Alfred Blue (toe), Jared Crick (knee), Brian Peters (hamstring), and Jaelen Strong (illness) are listed as questionable.
