The beastly Jadeveon Clowney that fans remember from his days at South Carolina is starting to reemerge at long last.
On Sunday afternoon, with the Indianapolis Colts threatening to take take the lead from the Texans late in the second half Clowney stepped up and made perhaps one of the best plays of the Texans’ season on defense.
Clowney powered past tight end Dwayne Allen and got to Luck, forcing the strip sack and giving the Texans the ball back without allowing the Colts to cut into their lead or take the lead themselves.
In 2015 Clowney suffered from a torn meniscus and also underwent microfracture surgery on his knee and he appears to have finally recovered from those nagging injuries.
Clowney has three sacks this season to go along with 41 combined tackles in what’s been a breakout campaign for the former No. 1 overall pick.
