O'Brien gives update on Jadeveon Clowney

Jadeveon Clowney's rehab is progressing nicely, according to his head coach.

"He's doing well," Bill O'Brien said on Thursday. "He's been in every meeting. He's at the walkthroughs. He gets extra treatment."

The rookie linebacker left in the first half of the Week 1 win over Washington, and had knee surgery

that week. He was projected to come back in four to six weeks. On Tuesday, Clowney said he was a "few weeks" away from being able to play again.

"He wants to be out on the field playing football," O'Brien said. "He's frustrated, but he's working hard to get back. He can't wait to get back."

O'Brien also said Clowney would not play next Thursday against the Colts.

Clowney said on Tuesday that he's been running, and would like to be back on the field with his teammates.

"Right now I'm just taking it day by day," Clowney said. "Just trying to get back healthy. Rehab is coming along good. My leg's feeling a lot better. Just taking it one day at a time."

After the Colts game, the Texans play the Steelers in Pittsburgh on Monday, October 20.
