Clowney (knee) underwent microfracture surgery Monday and is consequently expected to be sidelined for nine months, ESPN reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Clowney has already been ruled out for the remainder of this season and his recent surgery reveals the seriousness of the knee issue that plagued him throughout a short-lived rookie campaign. The top pick of this year's draft, Clowney managed just seven tackles in four games played this season. Now with a nine-month recovery timetable, Clowney might not be ready for the beginning of next season; however, his progress in the coming months will certainly shed more light on when he'll ultimately be ready to return.
Clowney is slated to have a procedure on his right knee and is headed for IR, ESPN's Tania Ganguli reports.

Clowney will receive a second opinion on his injured knee from Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Clowney's knee is refusing to cooperate with the Texans' recovery plan, so they will send him to be evaluated by Andrews in the hopes that the specialist can help determine the best way to get him healthy.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

There was no outlook written for Jadeveon Clowney.

2014

It's crucial that IDP drafters double-check the positional designation their league gives to Clowney, as he might be listed as an LB rather than a DL, but if he secures DL eligibility he'll be a borderline DL1 consideration. The Texans didn't pick Clowney first overall to bring him along slowly, so he'll start opposite Whitney Mercilus at 3-4 OLB, moving to DE in nickel formations. Clowney is like the Calvin Johnson of defensive end prospects, and he'll have the opportunity to post big numbers immediately with offenses primarily concerned with J.J. Watt. Clowney has 4.5 speed at 6-5, 266 pounds and should contend for a Pro Bowl spot immediately. Bone spurs in his right foot are the only real concern to his productivity.
