Jadeveon Clowney made some noise Saturday night in his first preseason NFL action of 2016.

The Houston Texans linebacker and former South Carolina standout sacked New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees once and almost got to him a second time.

Clowney, who has 47 tackles and 4.5 sacks in two regular seasons, has been limited mostly by knee and back injuries in Houston but also has struggled with an ankle injury. He was the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
