Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney 'somewhat' affected by knee injury
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(11/24/14) Texans linebacker Jadeveon Clowney told the Houston Chronicle following a Week 12 loss to Cincinnati that he's still being affected by a knee injury. Clowney finished with three tackles, including one for a loss on Sunday.
"Somewhat," Clowney said. "Some things are holding me back still but I'm just out here trying to do what I can do and have fun. You never know if you’re going to have an injury or not coming into the league. So when that happened to me, it was a setback. I'm just trying to do everything I need to do to get back to where I need to be to help the team out."
Texans list lengthy injury report for Week 12
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(11/21/14) The Texans released a lengthy injury report that included 16 players leading up to Week 12 against Cincinnati. 13 of the 16 players on the list were deemed probable.
Kareem Jackson (knee) was the only player ruled out, while Arian Foster (groin) and Max Bullough (hamstring) were deemed questionable.
The following players were ruled as probable for Sunday: Tyson Clabo (foot), Jadeveon Clowney (knee), Brian Cushing (knee), Akeem Dent (neck), Jonathan Grimes (ankle), Andre Johnson (rest), Johnathan Joseph (knee), Ryan Mallett (chest), Whitney Mercilus (knee), Mike Mohamed (hip), Darryl Morris (ankle), Jeff Tarpinian (knee) and Justin Tuggle (shoulder).
|The Texans made Jadeveon Clowney the top pick of the 2014 NFL Draft, giving their defense another incredibly talented and athletic pass rusher. The 6-5, 266-pound athletic pass rusher notched a school-best 13 sacks at South Carolina and 23.5 tackles for loss in 2012 before his production tailed off when opposing offenses paid a ton of attention to him as a senior. NFL defenses can't afford to guard against him the same way now that he's teammates with J.J. Watt, so there's a good chance he'll put up some big numbers as a rookie. However, the Texans have listed Clowney as a linebacker, meaning his numbers will likely pale compared to the high tackle totals of middle linebackers around the league. So if your league counts tackles, Clowney might not be a helpful Fantasy option and thus he'd be a late-round pick. But if your league doesn't count tackles then Clowney should be more of a No. 2 Fantasy linebacker worth a selection just past the halfway point of the draft. These same designations should also mean something in your dynasty and long-term keeper leagues.
