Jadaveon Clowney to finally make his Houston Texans return

Published Add your comment

The Houston Texans have not had a great run up to the 2015 NFL season, to say the very least.

The Texans lost Arian Foster for at least the first eight games of the regular season after injury forced him into having sports hernia surgery and being placed on the short-term injury list. This leaves Chris Polk and Alfred Blue fighting it out in training camp to try and grab that vacant number one spot, with a new halfback potentially on the way.

Thankfully, there is some good news for Texans fans, with one injured player looking set to make his comeback.

Clowney's Return

According to some reports, Texans outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney could be set to finally make a return to the team after months out on the trainer's table.

Texans coach Bill O’Brien said early in training camp that the team had set August 17th as the target date for Clowney to begin practicing with the team for the first time since undergoing microfracture surgery last year.

Keeping Cautious

Well, as you can probably tell, that date is getting much closer and O'Brien had some rather exciting and optimistic news for Texans fans.

“Yeah, look, August 17 is the day that I think our medical team has talked to him about, but, again, with JD, it’s if he feels ready to go on that day,” O’Brien said, according to the Houston Chronicle.

“[If] his knee feels good, then he’ll go. We’re not going to rush him back. We feel like that’s a good date for him, so, yeah, we’re on target for that. Hopefully, he’ll get out here and be able to do something that day.”

The Texans are going to need Clowney out on the field and dominating if they want to keep up with the Colts in the AFC South.
