A day after working on the side with team trainers, Jadeveon Clowney returned to practice for the Houston Texans on Thursday. Clowney was held out by the team the past Sunday against the Green Bay Packers to make sure he is a healthy as he could be for the final four games of the season. Currently, Clowney has been listed on the NFL injury report with a wrist and elbow injury. Last week during practice he was spotted with a cast on his left wrist which is a clear indication of his injury issues.
At the start of the week Bill O'Brien mentioned that Clowney was beat up and resting him was the best option for Clowney.
"Look, he's beat up," explained Bill O'Brien on Monday. ”He really didn't practice much during the week. We felt, not him, that he wasn't ready to play. We'd like to get him ready to play the following week instead of losing him for the rest of the season. So, I thought that was the right decision." O'Brien also added that Clowney wanted to play in the game against the Packers but the Texans were not changing their minds with his current injury.
Clowney, on the season, has 41 tackles, 3 sacks, 12 tackles for loss, and 11 quarterback hits. His 12 tackles for loss rank 3rd in the NFL.
