Both Texans Nick Martin and Jadeveon Clowney Held Out of Practice

The Texans are dealing with some injuries as they take the field again at camp, as Aaron Wilson reports that both outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney and rookie center Nick Martin were held out of practice due to unspecified injuries.

The good news about the injuries, is neither are expected to be serious enough to keep either player out long term.

“I think we’re just for precautionary reasons just watching both those guys,” coach Bill O’Brien said following an indoor practice Monday morning. “It’s nothing that’s serious, but I think rest will help them.”

Clowney has dealt with a myriad of injuries since being drafted first overall out of South Carolina, including undergoing microfracture knee surgery as a rookie and having his meniscus repaired and dealing with a concussion as a rookie.

Last season, he missed time with a foot injury and a back injury and played in a career-high 14 games while recording 4 1/2 sacks.

Clowney lost weight before this season, getting down to 265 pounds from 284 pounds and has taken up yoga to increase his flexibility and try to prevent injuries.
