J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney both missed practice for the Houston Texans today. This probably doesn't mean anything considering it is only Wednesday, but it is still worth noting. It would be a huge help to the Titans terrible offensive line if both of these guys had to sit out the game.
Watt is dealing with a back injury that happened last week against the Dolphins. He left the game briefly when the injury first happened but returned. Here is what he had to say after practice:

As for Clowney, Texans coach Bill O'Brien said after practice that he is suffering from a "24-hour bug:"
Bill O'Brien said J.J. Watt has a minor injury and will be able to play. Jadeveon Clowney has a 24-hour bug— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) October 28, 2015
He will probably return to practice tomorrow.
