Houston Texans defensive end Jadeveon Clowney returned to practice
on Thursday after failing to travel with the team to Green Bay last
week to face the Packers.
The top overall pick of the 2014 draft missed that contest due to
the wrist and elbow injuries that have plagued him all season.
“He practiced today. I would still put him in the day-to-day
(category),” Texans coach Bill O’Brien said.
Clowney’s presence would be a boon for Houston (6-6), which visits
the Indianapolis Colts (6-6) in an AFC South showdown on Sunday (1
p.m. ET). The Texans, Colts and Tennessee Titans (6-6) are locked
in a three-way tie for first place in the division.
Clowney, 23, has collected 34 tackles and three sacks in 11 games
this season. The oft-injured Clowney was limited to just 11 starts
and 17 games overall in his first two seasons.
