Jadeveon Clowney returned to practice after being out with an illness on Wednesday.
"Just a normal cold, I guess," Clowney said Thursday. "But I'm feeling a lot better than I did yesterday."
On the official injury report, the second-year linebacker was limited in his participation due to "illness/ankle." Clowney was inactive for the Jacksonville game on Oct. 18 with an ankle injury.
He returned to the starting lineup in Miami, posting his first career NFL sack and a team-high eight tackles, two for a loss.
While it was probably his best game on the stats sheet, Clowney's learning curve is trending in the right direction, according to defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel.
"Like I tell you, he is still a rookie and he still makes some rookie mistakes because he doesn't have enough playing experience, but I think that as he gains playing experience we will see him perform better and be able to get even more sacks, more tackles, because he will put himself in better position overall," Crennel said.
The Texans host the Titans on Sunday with kickoff scheduled for noon C.T. on CBS KHOU-11 and SportsRadio 610.
