In what is hardly an earth-shattering development after what Bill O'Brien said, news just broke on Twitter that Jadeveon Clowney was placed on the pre-season active/PUP list:

First of all, as Ganguli said...

DON'T FREAK OUT!

This is just a procedural move by the organization in ensuring proper roster management with the league.  Once Clowney is able to join the team in full practices, he can be removed from the list.

Here is the definition as it relates to this situation:

  1. A player who, as a result of football-related injuries, is unable to take part in training camp practices may be assigned to the preseason PUP list. Players can be moved off the PUP list to the active roster at any time, even after one practice.

Thus, the Texans can take Clowney off the PUP List at any time during training camp. No need to lose your mind.

So you see, everything is just fine.  Carry on about your afternoon.
