Texans | Jadeveon Clowney won't play in preseason game

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 10:52:09 -0700

Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney (knee) will not play in the team's third preseason game against the New Orleans Saints Sunday, Aug. 30, as the team continues to follow a medical plan for their linebacker. Houston is likely to ease Clowney in the rotation with LBs Whitney Mercilus and John Simon. "I'm rusty," Clowney said. "I'm just trying to get as many reps as I can. Tell coach to put me in as much as possible. They're not trying to rush me back. Working me in slowly. I'll still be trying to get as many reps as I can so I can get ready for the game."

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 15:50:11 -0800

Houston Texans LB John Simon is likely to start in Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts with LB Whitney Mercilus (back) out. "He made a really nice play against Jacksonville where he spiked inside on a zone-read play and Kendrick (Lewis) came off the edge and they both kind of hit the quarterback," head coach Bill O'Brien said. "I thought he made a really nice play there. He's instinctive. Hopefully he'll continue to try and get better."
