Jadeveon Clowney won't require offseason foot surgery, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
In Week 16, Clowney sustained a foot injury that claimed his availability in the season finale and the wild-card loss to the Chiefs. Prior to that unfortunate development, he realized some of his vast potential as a pass rusher, racking up 4.5 sacks among 40 tackles (27 solo) and a forced fumble. If he can ever avoid the injury bug, he would augment an already imposing pass-rushing duo of J.J. Watt (groin) and Whitney Mercilus.
Clowney continues to recover from a foot injury suffered in Week 16, forcing a second absence in a row. For the time being, pass-rushing duties will again be supplied by J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus (back).

Clowney's absence leaves Houston without one of its biggest names against Kansas City, though the Houston Texans still have J.J. Watt (17.5 sacks) and Whitney Mercilus (12 sacks) around to lead a solid pass rush. John Simon will likely be Clowney's primary replacement.

Clowney was a limited participant in practice Thursday, and then sat out Friday's walkthrough, so his status is up in the air heading into Saturday's postseason tilt. For what it's worth, Clowney has reportedly been limping all this week, so it wouldn't be surprising if John Simon and Kourtnei Brown see more action than usual.
