Injuries are becoming an all too familiar site for Jadeveon Clowney and the Houston Texans.

Confirmed by Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, Clowney has been sidelined once again with a lower back injury.

His report said that the injury was 'muscular in nature with no structural damage' and that it was picked up before the bye week against their divisional rivals, the Tennessee Titans.

Texans head coach Bill O'Brien has only categorized the injury as day-to-day and Clowney was able to practice on Wednesday in full pads, but he was unable to practice on Thursday.

Injuries are becoming an all too common occurrence for the linebacker as he has had several different injuries in the NFL since being drafted in 2014.

According to Wilson's report: "As a rookie, he underwent microfracture surgery, preceded by sports hernia surgery, a concussion and meniscus surgery. This year, Clowney has had a sprained ankle, an illness, a shoulder injury and now the back injury."

After this season, Clowney still has another two years left on his deal, but you have to wonder if all these injuries are going to have an effect on what length of contract he will be given in 2017 by the Texans if he is offered one at all.

The investment of a first overall pick for Clowney is clearly not paying off at the moment. He's only got 21 tackles, one sack, and one forced fumble in seven games this season. The Texans might begin to lose their patience due to how much they've invested in him.
