Jadeveon Clowney to go on IR-- Thu Dec 4 7:35 pm --
No sacks and seven total tackles for No. 1 overall pick
Jadeveon Clowney's disappointing rookie season has come to an abrupt conclusion. Houston Texans coach Bill O'Brien announced Thursday that Clowney will be placed on season-ending injured reserve. The No. 1 overall pick is set to undergo further surgery on his right knee. The news comes after Clowney visited with Dr. James Andrews, who determined that a second procedure would be necessary. Clowney underwent surgery to repair a meniscus tear after hurting his knee in the second quarter of Week 1.(NFL.com)
FF Today's Take:There will be plenty of people that will call Clowney a "rookie bust", but the truth of the matter is that he was never healthy enough to get going in 2014. The future is still plenty bright for him and at least he'll have the benefit of having experienced a training camp and a year in the Texans' defensive system.
