Clowney expected to be ready for Texans opener

Is Jadeveon Clowney on track to play in the season opener?

That simple question got a simple answer Wednesday from Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien:


O'Brien said he plans on Clowney playing, and that things are continuing to progress as the team has hoped.

Clowney is still being eased into a larger practice workload and did not play in either of the first two preseason games.

Clowney's rookie season was cut short by a knee injury and subsequent microfracture surgery last December.

The team and Clowney have had a plan in place for months for his rehab and return to the field.

He began practicing on Aug. 17 and has not suffered any setbacks.

Clowney spoke with the media as well and when he was told that O'Brien said he is on track to play in the opener, he replied with a smile, "Oh, Bill said that?"

Clowney missed all but four games in his rookie season after injuring his right knee in the opening game against Washington.

"I'm just hitting everybody," Clowney said when asked if he was excited to play again and whether he hoped to make his return at the start of the season.

He also believes that playing alongside J.J. Watt and Vince Wilfork will makes things easier for him and others.

"I know I can beat one guy," he said, alluding to the attention that the other two players are likely to receive.

The Texans open the season Sept. 13 at NRG Stadium against the Kansas City Chiefs.
