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.
@HoustonTexans rule out @clownejd for game vs. Jaguars due to sprained ankle. http://t.co/Evnynll6H3 pic.twitter.com/4n2K7QUGdV— Houston Chronicle (@HoustonChron) October 16, 2015
Jadeveon Clowney is OUT for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. #Texans— Tania Ganguli (@taniaganguli) October 16, 2015
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.
In addition to Clowney, S Quintin Demos and WR Nate Washington are ruled out against the Jaguars. RB Alfred Blue... http://t.co/88Gy2990EC— Tania Ganguli (@taniaganguli) October 16, 2015
Alfred Blue (toe), Jared Crick (knee), Brian Peters (hamstring), and Jaelen Strong (illness) are listed as questionable.
