Description: Texans outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney (knee) will miss the next nine months after undergoing microfracture surgery.
Insight: It was on his right knee, and this is not good news, as this surgery is one of the toughest to go through as an athlete. There will be a good chance Clowney starts next season on the PUP list.
Description: Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict (left knee scoped) will miss Week 14.
Insight: It takes most players about four weeks to come back from a scope and we are at the five- week mark, so the injury must have been more serious than anyone expected. Vincent Rey will continue to start.
