Yesterday the Texans tweeted:
Before he was drafted, there was cause for concern when analysts pointed out that Clowney was not giving one-hundred percent to making a tackle. But that did not sway organizations who know the potential that Clowney has. Especially, after The Hit.
Like our Videos...
In the preseason, Clowney had surgery for a sports hernia. That wasn’t such a big deal because it was a quick recovery time. However a more serious incident occurred in a joint practice with the Denver Broncos, after Clowney suffered a concussion from a hit. As a result he had to miss two preseason games.
After being cleared to play for the start of the season, Clowney injured his knee while attempting to make a tackle during Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins. This was gut-wrenching for the Texans’ and their fan-base. Especially after having high hopes for their new, top defensive prospect.
Last season the Texans record was an embarrassing 2-14. Losing Clowney for 4-6 games will have a big impact on how the team is going to do and will likely hurt them. The Texans have a bye in week 10, meaning that if the bye was during the 4-6 weeks Clowney is out, it wouldn’t be so detrimental for the Texans.
Fingers crossed that Clowney has a swift recovery and the Texans do not suffer too much without him.
