Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney ‘day-to-day’ with foot injury
Oft-injured Houston Texans linebacker Jadeveon Clowney is considered ‘day-to-day’ with a left foot injury suffered in Sunday’s 34-6 win over the Tennessee Titans.
Clowney left Sunday’s win in the fourth quarter and didn’t return. Houston head coach Bill O’Brien said tests revealed no damage to Clowney’s foot, adding there’s a chance the second-year player will be available for Sunday’s regular-season finale against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
“Clowney, he’s day-to-day right now,” O’Brien said. “It’s a foot issue. There’s no structural damage there, so it’s just day-to-day and we’ll see how that goes as the week progresses.”
The first overall pick in the 2014 draft, Clowney has dealt with an assortment of injuries over his first two years in the NFL, highlighted by a knee injury that required microfracture surgery last season. This year, the 22-year-old has dealt with ankle and back injuries that have kept him out of two games.
Clowney has 4.5 sacks this season.
