Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins has been activated from the PUP list. He was reportedly dealing with a minor ankle issue, but it's not a concern now. Hopkins has missed just 1 game through 6 NFL seasons.
The Texans have placed WR DeAndre Hopkins on the active/PUP list to begin training camp. Hopkins is coming off a shoulder injury that included tearing ligaments from the bone. He avoided offseason surgery, though, and has indicated he expects to be feeling better this season than he did last. Hopkins played through a foot issue as well for most of 2018. We'll watch him through camp but aren't currently worried for his regular-season status.
Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins revealed that he played through serious pain in 2018. "Last year was tough, not just physically but mentally," Hopkins said Saturday, via the Houston Chronicle. "It's the most banged up I've ever been playing football. I was dealing with serious injuries a lot of people would have sat down for. But we had a good team that depended on me, and I never gave a thought to not playing unless the doctors told me I couldn’t." Hopkins also shared that he tore ligaments in his shoulder “completely off the bone.” Wow. The 27-year-old set career highs with 115 catches and 1,572 yards last season. He’s fully expected to be ready for training camp.
Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins told NFL Network's James Palmer that he suffered a Grade 3 sprain of the AC joint in his right shoulder in the 1st half of Saturday's playoff loss to the Colts. Hopkins played in the 2nd half but didn't look quite right. He finished with 5 catches for 37 yards on 10 targets. It was a disappointing end to a brilliant campaign. Hopkins led all WR in PPR points this season, finishing 2nd in catches, 2nd in yards and 4th in TDs. And he played all 16 games for the 5th time in 6 tries. Hopkins will be in the mix to be the 1st WR off the board in 2019 fantasy drafts.

He was limited in practice all week, and NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport suggested this morning that Hopkins was a game-time decision. So that ankle seems like a real concern.

We'll get his official status around 11:30 am ET.

Regardless, Hopkins should dominate targets tomorrow.

Texans WRs DeAndre Hopkins (foot) and Will Fuller (hamstring) are expected to play against the Titans today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hopkins' status was never in doubt. Fuller missed the opener and remained limited in practice this week, so that hammy is still a concern. He's a risk/reward WR3 for Week 2. Fuller's return is good news for QB Deshaun Watson.
The Texans listed WR DeAndre Hopkins (foot) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) is officially inactive for today’s game against the Patriots. Rookie Keke Coutee (hamstring) is also inactive. That leaves Bruce Ellington, Sammie Coates and Vyncint Smith behind DeAndre Hopkins on the depth chart. Hopkins is obviously the only fantasy play here. He’s a strong bet for 10+ targets.
The Texans added Texas Tech WR Keke Coutee in the 4th round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Coutee is 1 of the most electric receivers in this year’s class, with 4.4 speed and loads of wiggle. He averaged 15.2 yards per catch over his 3-year college career and enjoyed a breakout 93-1,429-10 2017 campaign. Coutee ranked 10th in yards per route run among all draft-eligible receivers last year, according to Pro Football Focus. The knocks against him? He’s coming from a pass-friendly, non-pro-style offense. And he goes just 5’10, 181 pounds with sub-5th percentile arm length, wingspan and hand size. Coutee’s big-play ability should translate to the pros if he’s deployed properly, though. He has a shot to slide in as the Texans’ #3 WR behind DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller. Houston is a building a strong WR corps for QB Deshaun Watson.
