Jadeveon Clowney: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Clowney, who underwent microfracture surgery last December, can be activated at any point during training camp. The move to the active/PUP list also gives the Texans the first six weeks of the regular season to activate Clowney in the event his knee doesn't respond.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)All along, Clowney has been aiming to be ready for the start of the 2015 regular season, and this nugget supports that notion. Assuming he can reestablish his health, Clowney -- the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 draft -- has the potential to be a dominant pass rusher down the road, despite recording just seven tackles in four games during his frustrating rookie campaign last year. With an eye toward the long haul though, the Texans will likely ease the linebacker back into the mix throughout August in order to help guard against re-injury.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Clowney was initially given a nine-month timetable after undergoing knee surgery in December, so his rehab appears to be going as planned. Barring a setback, the former No. 1 overall pick should be on the field for Week 1, but he likely won't see a full workload until a few weeks into the season.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Knee problems, beginning in Week 1, limited Clowney to four games played in 2014. Both Smith and head coach Bill O'Brien are optimistic for the linebacker's return for the 2015 season.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Jadeveon Clowney.
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.
