Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien said Friday that it's not looking good for rookie linebacker Jadeveon Clowney to play Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to ESPN.com's Tania Ganguli.  

O’Brien said Clowney would get checked out against on Saturday and that he “will be a game-time decision like it was last Sunday," but would not disclose what injury Clowney might have. 

Ganguli reports that Clowney’s knee is fine and he is dealing with an illness. 

Clowney, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, missed the last six games with a torn meniscus in his right knee before returning in last week’s 30-16 victory over the Tennessee Titans.

O'Brien was asked if it is frustrating that Clowney might miss another game."No it's not frustrating at all. Nope, not one bit. It's the National Football League," he told Texans.com.

Clowney played 32 defensive snaps recording one tackle, while playing in 52 percent of the defensive plays against the Texans, according to the Houston Chronicle.
