Titans Suffer Blow, Jadeveon Clowney Done for Year

Jadeveon Clowney is done for the season, reports Ian Rapoport.

On Nov. 21, the Titans placed Clowney on injured reserve with the hope he would be back late in the season for the playoffs. Instead, he underwent surgery to repair his left meniscus, which puts him on track for a full recovery in time for March’s free agency period.

While Clowney was rarely healthy, playing only eight games with no sacks — he was a play-maker when on the field.

Tennessee is 8-3, third in the AFC, and could’ve used his boost on its sluggish defense. Particularly, in a potential matchup with Patrick Mahomes, who must be rushed to defeat.

As for Clowney, even with a full recovery, his market likely won’t be much stronger than last season. Clowney is worth a small, one-year investment for an already Super Bowl-contending team. Nothing more.

In 2021, that team may again be the Titans, who have not ruled out a return.

  1. Looking more and more like Aundray Bruce 2.0 by the day.

    Clowney’s career thus far: 3 teams in 7 years, one season where he’s played all 16 games, 0 seasons of at least 10 sacks, and has 32 career sacks (roughly 4.5 sacks/season). Looking a bit “Bust-y” to me.
