Texans’ Bill O’Brien Calls for Jadeveon Clowney to Limit Penalties

Published

on

Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien is calling on Jadeveon Clowney to clean up the penalties he is getting flagged for this season, and balance the aggressiveness that he brings to the field out with a bit more control.

Clowney has been flagged 8 times during 6 games and has notched 13 total tackles, 2.5 sacks, and a fumble recovery thus far this season.

“Guys that play like he does – he plays the game in a really attacking way, and so people are going to use their cadence against him and he’s just got to be really focused on that” O’Brien said, according to the Houston Chronicle.

“Then, the taunting call, like somebody asked me if I’m going to – yeah, I’ll talk to him about it, but I’m not going to go down the road of what. I think he just was just kind of messing around with the guy, but you can’t do that. You can’t do that, and that’s what they called and we’ll make sure that he knows not to do that anymore.”

The Cincinnati Bengals have placed tight end Tyler Kroft on injured reserve, effectively ending his season, as he will be unable to return from a broken bone in his foot, as the team had hoped, according to ESPN’s Katherine Terrell.

In a corresponding move, the Bengals promoted linebacker Brandon Bell off of their practice squad to fill the roster spot made available when Kroft was sent to IR.

Kroft, who is in a contract year, is expected to be healthy in time for free agency in the spring.

Kroft hauled in 42 passes for 404 yards and seven touchdowns while filling in for Tyler Eifert in the 2017 season.
