Tennessee Titans edge rusher Jadeveon Clowney, who is dealing with a knee injury and is questionable, is not expected to play in Week 9 against the Chicago Bears, per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.
On Saturday, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported that Clowney was dealing with a meniscus issue that could require surgery. Ian Rapoport added that a trim of the meniscus would keep Clowney out a few weeks, while a full repair would end his season.
With Clowney out and Vic Beasley released earlier in the week, the Titans will turn to Derick Roberson and Wyatt Ray to help fill the void opposite Harold Landry.
Roberson has played in just one game this season due to injury and illness, while Ray, who was a training camp standout and has been elevated from the practice squad for this week, will be making his Titans debut.
Tennessee and Chicago will meet at Nissan Stadium on Sunday, with kickoff set for noon CT.
