HOUSTON (AP) No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney had a setback with his surgically repaired right knee and said Thursday that his chances of playing for Houston at Tennessee on Sunday are slim.
Clowney has played just four games this season after being injured in Week 1. The outside linebacker, who had arthroscopic surgery Sept. 8, was in for about 50 plays last Sunday in his most significant action since his injury.
He experienced swelling in his knee after the game and hasn't practiced all week. On Thursday he acknowledged for the first time just how much his knee is hurting him.
