HOUSTON (AP) No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney will miss Houston's game against Tennessee on Sunday after a setback on his surgically repaired right knee.

He experienced swelling in his knee after last week's game and didn't practice all week. He was ruled out on Friday.

Clowney has played just four games this season after being injured in Week 1. The outside linebacker, who had arthroscopic surgery Sept. 8, was in for about 50 plays last Sunday in his most significant action since his injury.

Coach Bill O'Brien says they haven't thought about shutting down Clowney for the season. He says: ''We've got to continue to manage it and communicate with him as to how he feels and just stay on that road right now.''
