Houston Texans' Jadeveon Clowney returns to practice field
Houston Texans defensive end and 2014 overall number one pick Jadeveon Clowney got on the field for the first Monday morning since micro-fracture surgery.
As head coach Bill O'Brien suggested throughout the process and again on Monday, Clowney worked in the individual drills and with this position group and they're slowly working him back into a full practice, which he obviously is not doing yet.
"It was more than I've worked in my life," said Clowney.
Clowney said a couple of times, it was just really good to be back out there with his teammates. He said he feels like he's not part of the team through some of that rehab work.
Notes from Monday's practice:
Lots of technique work with Mike Vrabel and Whitney Mercilus. Working on hand positioning and leverage on pass rush.
Not in team drills, working on getting low, exploding out of stance.
Ryan Griffin back at practice. Mike McFarland. Xavier Su'a-Filo, Jeff Tarpinian, Anthony Denham, Lonnie Ballentine on the side.
Ryan Mallett was with the first unit in limited teamwork, great out route in end zone to Washington from Mallett.
Also Charles James, as usual, making plays, jumps a route in a cross near the corner of end zone and picks off the Tom Savage throw to Jace Davis.
Moving a lot of their offensive skill personnel around.
Mallett tries to squeeze the ball in to Washington, Kareem Jackson with the nice pass break up at the goal line.
Savage looking for Fiedorowicz back on the end zone, Jumal Rolle gets his hand up in coverage and bats the ball away.
Nice execution on a screen to Polk out of the backfield, blockers out in front of him. (IMO, that's his value to this team, catching the ball out of the backfield.)
Working with the second unit, Brian Hoyer with a nice throw to the sidelines to Mumphrey. Follows that with a low throw over the middle short and a deep ball (50 yards) overthrown to Mumphrey in the end zone.
Pressure by Brown off left side (would be sack) forces Hoyer to throw it away.
Savage with a similar overthrow to Labhart, Charles James was the closest player to the ball but even he couldn't get to it.
