Texans Notebook: Jadeveon Clowney, Brian Peters and Brian Hoyer Updates

Quick updates on a trio of Houston Texans players coming out of Tennessee.

Clowney Leaves Early, but Everything Seems Fine

Jadeveon Clowney said, "Yeah, I'll be all right," after injuring his foot against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. 

Clowney himself thought the injury was much worse but he is confident that is was nothing but a scare. 

"I'm good. I feel pretty good," said Clowney. 

Clowney finished the game with 1 tackle and a pass deflection. On the season, Clowney has 39 total tackles with 4.5 sacks, 5 pass deflections and 1 forced fumble. 

Brian Peters Knocked Out of the Game

Texans special teams ace Brian Peters was knocked out of the game, diving to make a play on a punt return. The injury was labeled as a chest injury, so this will be something to watch as the week progresses. 

Peters, since joining the Texans in week 10, has 12 special teams tackles. 

Brian Hoyer Will Remain the Starter when “Healthy”

Coach Bill O’Brien made it clear after the Texans wins over the Titans that Brian Hoyer will be the starter when he clears the concussion protocol. 

Hoyer practiced last week but was not rushed back out of concussion protocol. No matter the situation, the Texans have help for Hoyer with Brandon Weeden showing he can run the offense if necessary and a change up with B.J. Daniels when needed.
