The Houston Texans have been without star edge rusher Jadeveon Clowney during training camp so far, and he won’t return for another few weeks.
Reporting on this situation, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport shared that Houston expects Clowney to report following the team’s third preseason game.
As Rapoport noted, Clowney is in phenomenal shape right now. Despite his holdout over a contract issue it’s been reported since before training camp that he would return near the end of camp.
At this point, the only thing left to determine it would seem is whether the NFLPA will officially file a grievance over Clowney’s franchise tag designation of defensive end/outside linebacker. Given the way Houston designated him, he’s set to earn roughly $1.7 million less than a defensive end.
