Houston Texans linebacker Jadeveon Clowney (knee) isn't expected to return to action until training camp due to his knee injury that required arthroscopic surgery earlier this year. He has yet to be medically cleared, but sources have emphasized that Clowney's long-term prognosis remains positive. "I think he's doing okay," head coach Bill O'Brien said. "He's in there with the medical team, trying to get better. He's in the meetings and things like that. I think he's progressing." Clowney says he'll be ready to go for the season, but one has to wonder given his lengthy history of injuries. In his first full season of his career in 2017, Clowney impressed with 59 tackles and a career-high 9.5 sacks. The trio of Clowney, J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus form one of the best pass-rushing trios in all of football when they are on the field together. Houston's defense will be a popular fantasy target in 2018, and Clowney should be a high IDP selection, barring any setbacks with his knee this summer.

Houston Texans linebacker Jadeveon Clowney (knee) is sitting out of organized team activities while he rehabs a knee injury after undergoing arthroscopic surgery following last season. His medical outlook is positive after seeking a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews, according to league sources. Clowney isn't worried and says he'll be ready to go, but it's another reminder of his checkered injury history. He's emerged as one of the most disruptive forces in the backfield and posted a career-high 59 tackles and 9.5 sacks in 2017 in his first full season. Clowney is heading into the final year of his deal but will need to stay healthy to land a lucrative long-term deal.

Houston Texans general manager Brian Gaine said he's optimistic the team will reach a long-term deal with defensive end Jadeveon Clowney before the 2018 season. Clowney is in line to play on his fifth-year option this year at $12 million. "[I like his] height, weight, [and] speed," Gaine said. "The production, the performance, the pass-rush ability. The guy's a disruptive player. He plays the run well. So we're doing our best to fortify our nucleus of players, and we'd like him to be a part of it." Clowney had been injury-prone in his career but finally played a full season last year. He has 15.5 sacks and 37 tackles for loss since 2016 and will be a strong IDP option again next season.
