|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(10/20/14) Texans linebacker Jadeveon Clowney is unlikely to play Monday night against the Steelers at Heinz Field, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

He will test his knee during warmups, but is unlikely to make his return.
The Texans will face Tennessee in Week 8.

|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|

Texans OLB Jadeveon Clowney back at practice Friday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(10/17/14) Texans rookie outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney returned to practice Friday for the first time since undergoing knee surgery that has prevented him from playing since Week 1. He was limited in the session.
Clowney might require more practice time to return to game action, but he does have one extra day this week to prepare. Houston is playing Pittsburgh on Monday Night Football.
Quartet of key Texans limited in Friday practice
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(10/17/14) Four key Texans were limited in practice on Friday as the team prepares for its Monday night game against Pittsburgh.
Included were wideout Andre Johnson (ankle), linebakers Brian Cushing (knee) and Jadeveon Clowney (knee) and cornerback Johnathan Joseph (knee).
Clowney has not played since Week 1 and is considered questionable for the game. The other three have yet to miss a game and will likely receive the green light for action.
|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.
