It sounds like no one knows why Houston Texans’ star Jadeveon Clowney is being held out of practice.

The Houston Texans are now back home after spending the first few weeks of training camp at The Greenbrier in West Virginia.

One thing that hasn’t changed since the Texans have returned from West Virginia is the fact that pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney still isn’t practicing.

Sarah Barshop of ESPN pointed out that Clowney was once again sitting out during Monday’s practice.

Barshop asked Texans’ head coach Bill O’Brien whether Clowney is dealing with an injury.

We all know that Clowney had a rough start to his career when it comes to injuries, but if he’s not injured right now, I’m not sure why the Texans would be keeping off the field for so long.

One thing to keep in mind is that since it’s not the regular season yet, I don’t believe that the Texans as well as other NFL teams have to report injuries.  So they don’t have to disclose whether or not Clowney is injured right now.

Hopkins still sidelined.

Texans’ star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is also still not practicing after suffering a minor injury during Houston’s first preseason game.

Hopefully Hopkins’ injury isn’t serious and the Texans are being overly cautious.

With the Texans now preparing for their third preseason game, which is typically where the starters will play for an entire half or more, it looks like Clowney and Hopkins may not play.
