Houston Texans Transcripts (12/1)

Head Coach Bill O’Brien
OLB/DE Jadeveon Clowney
Do you expect WR Will Fuller V to play on Sunday?
Do you expect WR Will Fuller V to play at some point this season?
Can you speak to OLB/DE Jadeveon Clowney’s durability the last couple of years after missing a few games early on?
“I think now, at this point in the season with him, it’s more about – the Wednesday practice was a jog-through because we got back so late on Monday. So, I felt like him being in the training room and getting some treatment that he would’ve had on a Tuesday, on a normal – this isn’t a normal week is what I’m saying. So, I would not read anything into him not being out there for a couple quote unquote practices. I think his durability’s been really, knock on wood, it’s been very good because he’s been out there for every game, and that’s important. He’s been out there for most practices on a normal week. So, I think it’s been good. I hope it continues.”
How much harder is it for a guy like OLB/DE Jadeveon Clowney, who is so physical, to be durable?
“I think that the way that he plays the game and I think the fact that he’s changed the way he works out in the offseason – I think after his rookie – not changed, but hadn’t been able to work out. After his rookie year when he had the surgery and all that, he couldn’t really work out leading into his second year. So, going into his third year, he’s able to work out a lot more and I think the durability that he has comes from his work ethic in here in our weight room and then on his own when he’s away from here. So, like I said, hopefully that continues.”  
What’s it like chasing around Titans QB Marcus Mariota?
“It’s hard work. I mean, he’s a good player. He can run, very fast, throw the ball. It’s going to be a good game plan this to go out there and play him.”
Are there some opportunities to get to a mobile quarterback?
“You’ve got a chance to get you some sacks, but we know he’s going to try to make plays with his legs. We just got to be in the right place at the right time this week. Everybody has to do their jobs for us to go in there and get a win.”
Was it good to get a rest day yesterday?
“Yeah, I’ll be ready to go.”
