Texans' Jadeveon Clowney suffers torn meniscus

The Houston Texans will have to make do without their No. 1 overall pick for the foreseeable future.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said Monday that Jadeveon Clowney underwent arthroscopic knee surgery and will miss four to six weeks. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday that Clowney tore his meniscus.

Clowney suffered the injury during Houston's 17-6 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday. He limped to the locker room late in the second quarter and did not return. He had one tackle for a loss before his exit.

Clowney has had injury issues since being taken with the first pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. The former South Carolina star missed extended time this summer after undergoing sports hernia surgery.

A big Sunday for the Texans' franchise has turned bittersweet.
