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 the first 4-to-6 weeks of the season after having sports hernia surgery during the pre-season. This leaves the completely untried and untested Chris Polk and Alfred Blue sharing carries as the Texans start the campaign, which won't fill Houston fans with the most confidence.

Thankfully, there is some good news for Texans fans, and as always it is coming from the defensive side of the ball, with Jadeveon Clowney revealing he will be on the field on Sunday.

Clowney's Ready

Tuesday was the one-year anniversary of Clowney getting hurt in the 2014 season opener against the Redskins, he would only play in three more games as a rookie after microfracture surgery, but now Clowney is raring to go.

“I’m ready to see myself out there," Clowney said, according to the Houston Chronicle. “That’s been so long. It’s been a long rehab. It’s been a long everything. I wouldn’t want nobody to go through what I went through. But it happens. You got to deal with it.

“I’ve been talking about (playing) for a while. It’s like five days, three days, two days. I’m just ready to get out there. I’m excited.”

Lowering Expectations

Whilst Clowney is undeniably raring to go and prove to everyone that the Texans were right to spend the number one overall pick on him, defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel tried to reign in expectations.

“I don’t think we can expect him to go out there and play the whole game,” Crennel said. "He’s basically a rookie in my mind and so I know he’s going to make some rookie mistakes. But hopefully he’s going to make some plays as well. We’ll just kind of have to see how it goes.”

Clowney might make some mistakes with his technique, but his freakish athleticism is more than enough to make up for it and he will frighten the Chiefs defense on Sunday.
