After being selected first overall out of South Carolina, Clowney has struggled to stay healthy. He played in only four games and has already had two procedures on his knee, the second of which being the dreaded and hard to return from microfracture surgery.
Typically such an injury takes an extended period of time, after which many players struggle to be the players they once were. For Clowney it will be a tough thing to come back from since so much of his game is dependent on his quick burst and exceptional speed.
While the team insists that the PUP placement doesn’t mean Clowney won’t be on the field by the beginning of the season, it is a bit of a tough pill to swallow after so much positive news.
If Clowney remains on the PUP list into the season, he will have to miss the first six games of the year, which I am sure the team and player both want to avoid.
While his overall health remains to be seen, we will open the polls to ask how many games Clowney will be on the field for the Texans in 2015, and leave a comment below about how you expect him to look once back in pads.
