Clowney (knee) isn't expected to return to the field until training camp, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
On the mend from arthroscopic knee surgery, Clowney is under no pressure to hurry himself back into action. It's possible he won't be ready to go from the first day of training camp, but head coach Bill O'Brien doesn't sound concerned about the defensive end missing too much of the Texans' finite amount of practice time this summer. In the meantime, Clowney and the Texans are expected to progress in talks over a lucrative contract extension. The former No. 1 overall pick is currently entering the last year of his rookie deal.
Clowney (knee) has not yet been cleared to practice at OTAs, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Clowney underwent a minor arthroscopic procedure on his knee back in January, and while he was originally expected to be medically cleared by April, the defensive end is still unable to participate in any sort of offseason workout. It's possible the Texans are just exercising caution with one of their several injured stars on defense, but Clowney still remains without a clear-cut timetable in his recovery from surgery.
Clowney (knee) likely will sign an extension this offseason, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Clowney played through a knee injury late last season, but it didn't stop him from posting career-high marks for games (16), tackles (59), sacks (9.5), forced fumbles (two) and fumble recoveries (two). He's under contract for 2018 on a fifth-year option, with a massive extension likely to come at some point this spring or summer. Clowney had a minor arthroscopic procedure on his knee in January, but at last check he was expected to be ready for the start of the Texans' offseason program April 16. He'll be seeking his first campaign with double-digit sacks, hoping to benefit from the expected returns of J.J. Watt (leg) and Whitney Mercilus (pectoral), both of whom warrant significant attention from opposing offensive lines.
Clowney (knee) won't participate in the 2018 Pro Bowl, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Clowney is expected to undergo a minor arthroscopic knee procedure in the near future, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The procedure is expected to prevent Clowney from playing in the Pro Bowl on Jan. 28, but the outside linebacker is expected to make a full recovery before the Texans' offseason activities begin in the spring. Clowney earned his second consecutive Pro Bowl nod after registering 9.5 sacks, 59 tackles, two forced fumbles and his first career touchdown while suiting up for all 16 of the Texans' games in 2017.
