Ryan Tannehill-led Tennessee Titans made a bright start to their 2020 NFL campaign. However, they’ve only won three of their last four games. They are still second in the AFC South Division table behind Philip Rivers-led Indianapolis Colts.

RB Derrick Henry has really been their star performer over the course of the season. But veteran NFL defensive end Jadeveon Clowney has also been a pivotal part of their defence which has been grabbing eyeballs, week-in and week-out since September.

However, it now appears that the Titans will be without their 27-year old star for the rest of the season.

Tennessee Titans place Jadeveon Clowney on Injury Reserve list

NFL insider Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport both reported on Saturday that Titans defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is about to undergo surgery. The former Houston Texans star was already ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens.

After a tumultuous year with the Seattle Seahawks, Clowney joined the Titans in 2020. He signed a one-year deal worth $12 million earlier this year. He featured in eight games for the Titans this season. However, he is now on the team’s Injury Reserve list.

Clowney suffered this knee injury last weekend and missed practice all week. Now it is likely that he will go under the knife in the coming weeks. This means that the three-time Pro Bowler will miss at least three games for the Titans. This is another setback for the controversial NFL star.

Official sources have not given a potential return date yet. Could this mean that Clowney is out for the remaining six games of the season? Watch this space for more.

This could be a major blow to the Titans and their playoff aspirations this year. The Titans are in dire need of a win against the Ravens in Week 11.
