Report: Texans’ JD Clowney Returns To Practice Monday


And there you have it…

The Houston Texans first preseason game is now in the books officially kicking things into high gear for the team.

The preseason luckily allows the vets to tune up their craft, gives long shots a great opportunity to work hard to make the team and allows rookies to play the role of understudy as they learn intricacies of the game.

It’s a melodrama because you never know what’s going to happen next our who’s going to leapfrog who to get that coveted roster spot to fulfill their lifelong dream.

I’m really thrilled that the Texans are featured on HBO’s quite-popular documentary series Hard Knocks.

Let me tell you, I’ve enjoyed watching my team on there because it helps us see some personality to men that we see every Sunday on the field.

I can’t wait until next week’s episode!

There’s some interesting developments that have occurred and luckily we’re getting some great news coming out of Texans’ camp.

Jadeveon Clowney, whom only appeared in four games last season because of dealing with a myriad of injuries, will return to practice tomorrow.

The Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson reports:

The plan is to bring him into the fray of things quite slowly to get him quite comfortable in action again before they start giving the hard stuff in terms of the drills that they will run through.

They will go by feel this time…

The Texans seem to want to get it right this time and not bring him along too fast or they’ll risk having forced further injury to the 2014 No. 1 pick in the NFL draft.

Bill O’Brien spoke to the Texans’ Drew Dougherty earlier this month in terms of the plans for Clowney saying that “we’re not going to rush him back” and “we feel like that’s a good date for him, so yeah we’re on target for that.  Hopefully, he’ll get out here and be able to do something that day.”

It’s apparent that his progression is right on schedule and the plan is to have him back for the season opener at least on a part-time basis come Sep. 13 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Let’s hope for the best with Clowney — his best showing was Week 1 against the Washington Redskins where he had one tackle but was feasting for any opportunity all around the field.

Clowney, 22, had five tackles and two assists through four games (two starts) in 2014.

Go Texans!
