It sounds like Houston Texans’ star Jadeveon Clowney doesn’t want to admit that his Halloween costume had to do with owner Bob McNair’s comments.

Houston Texans’ star pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney was spotted wearing an orange jumpsuit during the team’s Halloween party.

Given the fact that Houston Texans’ owner Bob McNair recently referred to NFL players as inmates, the thought was that Clowney was taking a shot at McNair.

Clowney was asked about costume on Wednesday while talking to the media and he stated that it wasn’t a dig at McNair.

Of course everyone was laughing, because it was a dig at McNair. I wouldn’t expect Clowney to admit it.  McNair’s recent comments was the reason that his costume was funny. Let’s not fool ourselves, his teammates wouldn’t have been laughing otherwise.

It will be interesting to see whether or not players on the Texans decide to protest for a second week.

Texans made some roster moves on Wednesday

With defensive end Christian Covington out for the season with a torn biceps muscle, the Texans ended up placing him on season-ending injured reserve on Wednesday.

In turn the Texans re-signed offensive lineman Kendall Lamm, who they just cut last week after activating left tackle Duane Brown.

With Brown getting traded to the Seattle Seahawks earlier in the week, the Texans had to bring Lamm back for depth. Hopefully Houston won’t need Lamm to play again this season after a horrible showing back in week one.
