Tennessee Titans outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney, who has already been ruled out for the Week 11 game against the Baltimore Ravens, has been placed on Injured Reserve, the team announced on Saturday.
Clowney has been dealing with a knee injury that forced him to miss the Week 9 game against the Chicago Bears, however he did suit up in Week 10 versus the Indianapolis Colts. He will now miss at least the next three games.
It has been a rough first season in Nashville for Clowney, who has failed to make the kind of impact most expected. The outside linebacker has yet to total a single sack in eight games played.
Along with Clowney, the Titans have also placed cornerback Kareem Orr on IR with a groin injury, and his spot on the roster will be taken by defensive back Greg Mabin, who was previously on the practice squad.
Three players have been elevated from the practice squad for Sunday’s game: linebackers Will Compton and Tuzar Skipper, and long snapper Matt Overton.
Tennessee was eligible to elevate a third player to the active roster for Week 11 after linebacker David Long Jr. was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list this week.
Last but certainly not least, safety Kenny Vaccaro has now been ruled out. He was originally listed with a neck injury, but that has now been changed to a concussion.
