Houston Texans rookie linebacker Jadeveon Clowney is expected to play Week 1 against the Washington Redskins, Brian Smith of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Texans coach Bill O’Brien said Monday the rookie is day-to-day.
Clowney was held out of practice on Thursday after a helmet-to-helmet collision with a Broncos player and did not play in Saturday's preseason game.
Washington and Houston play on Sept. 7 at NRG Stadium.
