You may have already been concerned about the Texans' defense in tomorrow's game in Jacksonville, as Jadeveon Clowney was officially reported as "out" yesterday for the tilt against the Jaguars.  Brace yourself for more bad news, as it is now being reported that J.J. Watt is battling an illness and is now listed as "questionable."

Here is the latest game status report from The Mothership:

OUT
OLB Jadeveon Clowney Ankle
S Quintin Demps Hamstring
WR Nate Washington Hamstring

QUESTIONABLE
RB Alfred Blue Toe
DE Jared Crick Knee
ILB Brian Peters Hamstring
WR Jaelen Strong Illness
DE J.J. Watt Illness

PROBABLE
G Oday Aboushi Toe
S Lonnie Ballentine Knee
CB A.J. Bouye Illness
T Duane Brown Hand
ILB Brian Cushing Ankle
ILB Akeem Dent Hamstring
TE C.J. Fiedorowicz Neck
RB Arian Foster Groin
RB Jonathan Grimes Hamstring
CB Kareem Jackson Non-Injury Related

RB Chris Polk Knee
WR Cecil Shorts III Shoulder

With Houston starting the year out with a 1-4 record, and much of that being attributed to a defense that hasn't quite come together to stop opponents, this news couldn't come at a worse time.  The Texans are desperately looking to try and turn their season around with a critical win against the division rival Jaguars on Sunday.  Let's hope that Watt is feeling up to the task in time for kickoff.
