Tennessee Titans defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is dealing with a meniscus issue in his knee that could require surgery, NFL Network reported Saturday.
The three-time Pro Bowl pass rusher is officially listed as questionable for Sunday’s game in Nashville against the Chicago Bears, but the report said he is unlikely to play after not practicing all week.
Clowney, who signed a one-year, $12 million deal a few days before the season opener, has reportedly been trying to play through the injury and has registered zero sacks through seven starts.
Clowney, 27, has 15 tackles, six quarterback hits, four passes defensed, three tackles for loss and a forced fumble.
The No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, Clowney has 32 sacks, 251 tackles, seven fumble recoveries and four defensive touchdowns in 82 games with the Houston Texans (2014-18), Seattle Seahawks (2019) and Titans.
