Draft Scout News
09/07/14 - LB Jadeveon Clowney was lost to a knee injury in the first half and the team fears he suffered a torn meniscus that could lead to a 4-to-6 week absence and arthroscopic surgery. Clowney has battled injuries since the Texans drafted him first overall last spring, missing most of the summer following hernia surgery before suffering a concussion during a preseason practice against the Denver Broncos. "I will say right now that they (team doctors) think it's a good prognosis so it looks like he's going to be OK," Texans coach Bill O'Brien said. "He may miss some time, he may not. Who knows? We'll know better as the week goes on."
09/03/14 - OLB Jadeveon Clowney will start against Washington, according to coach Bill O'Brien. Clowney played sparingly in the first two preseason games. Expect the Redskins to try to force him into coverage by putting a tight end and a slot receiver to his side. It'll be interesting to see how defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel adjusts.
09/01/14 - WOLB Jadeveon Clowney, the first pick in the draft, was injured for much of preseason but is expected to play against Washington. When he's rushing, he has an incredible explosiveness off the ball and a tremendous closing burst to the quarterback. At times, he'll line up next to J.J. Watt and let the offense figure out who to double. If Clowney ever drops into coverage, he'll be lost.
08/21/14 - OLB Jadeveon Clowney was making a good impression on the Broncos before he left Wednesday's practice with an undisclosed injury. He walked off with no problem, spent the rest of practice on a trainer's table under a tent not getting treatment, then walked to the bus without a problem after practice.
Still, Clowney wasn't at Thursday's practice.
"He's doing fine," coach Bill O'Brien said. "We just held him out today. He'll be fine."
Before he was injured, Clowney impressed the Broncos.
"A couple of those moves (Clowney) makes are very impressive," Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase said. "He's so quick and so fast.
"He's such a freak as far as his athletic ability. It's been good for us to go against him."
Added defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio, "(Clowney) comes in with a high pedigree, and just looking at the way he moves out here, he'll fit into that (greatness) category."
Clowney is making the transition from defensive end in college to outside linebacker in a 3-4 in the NFL – the same transition DeMarcus Ware made with the Dallas Cowboys.
Ware is playing in his first season with the Broncos.
"You can see his athleticism," Ware said. "He's still young, but he's a great player. Experience comes with years and maturing of the game and figuring out the speed of it."
08/21/14 - OLB Jadeveon Clowney finished practice in the medical tent Wednesday at the Denver Broncos' team facility.
He left practice with 35 minutes remaining, and there were conflicting reports about the nature of his injury. The Houston Chronicle reported Clowney left with a groin injury.
Clowney more than held his own against Denver left tackle Ryan Clady to disrupt quarterback Peyton Manning, but appeared to be favoring his left shoulder or left side of his neck, according to USA Today. He did not receive medical treatment before the team ushered him to a bus following practice.
The biggest indication the injury might not be serious: head coach Bill O'Brien was not briefed on Clowney's condition and said he was unaware there was any injury to the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 draft.
Clowney was back at full strength after undergoing sports hernia surgery in June.
Two more practices -- Thursday and a walkthrough Friday -- are scheduled at the Broncos team facility before Saturday night's game.
Clowney's status for Saturday's game is uncertain.
