Titans place LB Clowney (knee) on injured reserve

The Tennessee Titans placed outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney on injured reserve, the team announced Saturday.

Clowney, who is nursing a meniscus issue in his knee, will miss at least the next three games as a result of the move. The three-time Pro Bowl selection is eligible to return for Tennessee’s road game against Jacksonville on Dec. 13.

The Titans (6-3) also ruled out safety Kenny Vaccaro for Sunday’s road game against the Baltimore Ravens (6-3). Vaccaro initially had been listed on the injury report with an ailing neck, however the team ruled him out with a concussion on Saturday.

Clowney, 27, has registered zero sacks through eight starts this season. He has recorded 19 tackles, six quarterback hits, four tackles for loss and a forced fumble.

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, Clowney has 32 sacks, 255 tackles and eight fumble recoveries in 83 games with the Houston Texans (2014-18), Seattle Seahawks (2019) and Titans.

Also on Saturday, the Titans promoted Greg Mabin from the practice squad to the active roster and sent fellow defensive back Kareem Orr (groin) to injured reserve.

Linebackers Will Compton and Tuzar Skipper were elevated to the 53-man roster for Sunday’s game against the Ravens, but both will return to the practice squad following the contest.
