Bill O’Brien: Jadeveon Clowney ‘should be fine’ to play Week 6
Despite an ankle injury suffered in Houston’s Thursday-night loss to Indianapolis, linebacker Jadeveon Clowney is expected to be be available for the team’s upcoming game against Jacksonville.
Clowney was in a walking boot the day after the game, but head coach Bill O’Brien said the second-year player "should be fine" for the team’s Week 6 matchup with the Jaguars.
“Looks like an ankle, but I just saw him just now before I walked in here, and he seemed to be doing well," O’Brien said Friday, per the team’s official website. "I think you guys probably saw he had a boot on, but that’s just precautionary."
The first pick in the 2014 draft, Clowney had two tackles in limited action against the Colts. He has 12 tackles and one forced fumble on the year.
