Keke Coutee Injury Updates

Texans WR Kenny Stills suffered a hamstring injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Panthers and is officially questionable to return. Stills' absence leaves Keke Coutee as Houston's #3 WR.

Texans WR Keke Coutee (ankle) isn’t listed on the final injury report after putting in a full week of practice. He’s ready to make his 2019 debut against the Jaguars on Sunday. It’ll be interesting to see how Coutee fits in alongside DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller and Kenny Stills. We’d try not to use Coutee in Week 2 fantasy lineups.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien said Friday that there's a "possibility" WR Keke Coutee (ankle) plays against the Saints on Monday night. "Touch and go, practiced yesterday. He did some decent things," O'Brien said. "We'll have to see how it goes. It's a long season. It was a pretty significant injury to his ankle." Coutee is shaping up as a game-time decision, but he'll be a risky fantasy play if he ends up active.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien said Tuesday that he's "not hopeful" about WR Keke Coutee's chances of being ready for Week 1. That's a bit surprising after Coutee practiced on Monday and O'Brien said he was "headed in the right direction." But Coutee's injury always looked like one that might cost him the start of the season. We'd expect him back at some point in September but will continue to monitor his progress.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien gave an update on WR Keke Coutee's ankle injury Saturday, and he didn't sound positive. Seemingly answering a question about whether Coutee or QB A.J. McCarron would be back soon, the coach said he didn't "expect either one of them to be back soon relative to what soon means," according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. O'Brien added: "Like tomorrow? No. A week from now? Probably not. We'll just keep playing it by ear." We'll see if Coutee's injury lingers beyond that rough timeline projection.

Texans WR Keke Coutee has been diagnosed with an ankle injury that "isn't regarded as serious," according to the Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson. Exhale. This looked like a potentially serious injury when it happened, but it now sounds like Coutee has a shot to be ready for the start of the season. We'll look for further updates on his status. For now, we're not moving him down the WR rankings.

Texans WR Keke Coutee suffered an apparent right knee injury in Thursday night's preseason opener. He was in obvious pain and was carted back to the locker room. "It doesn't look good," longtime beat writer John McClain tweeted. We'll update Coutee's status as soon as we learn more.

Texans WR Demaryius Thomas will miss the rest of the season with a ruptured left Achilles, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's a devastating injury for the 31-year-old and makes him questionable for the start of the 2019 campaign. It's also a big loss for a Texans team thin at WR. We'll see if they get rookie Keke Coutee (hamstring) back for Week 17. DeAndre Carter and Vyncint Smith are Houston's other WRs.

Texans WR Keke Coutee will be a game-time decision today against the Browns, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Coutee put in limited practices all week after suffering his latest hamstring re-injury. Let the GTD status point to his risk level as you decide whether to use him.

Texans WR Keke Coutee left Monday night's win over the Titans early with another hamstring injury. It's the same issue that already cost him games 2 other times this season. The Houston Chronicle reports that the latest recurrence isn't expected to cost Coutee any further time, though. For his part, the player said: "I'm feeling good. We'll have to see where we go from here." We'll watch Coutee's practice participation this week.

The Texans believe WR Will Fuller tore his right ACL in Thursday night's win over the Dolphins, according to multiple sources. A Friday MRI will confirm the diagnosis. It'd be a season-ending injury for Fuller, who missed 8 games across his first 2 NFL seasons. His absence would leave Houston with Keke Coutee, Vyncint Smith and Sammie Coates behind DeAndre Hopkins on the depth chart. Coutee is worth adding in all leagues if he was dropped with his latest hamstring injury. He's tentatively expected back for Week 9.

Texans WR Keke Coutee's latest hamstring injury isn't considered serious, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The rookie isn't expected to play against the Dolphins on Thursday night, "but may not be out much more than that," Rapoport adds. Coutee is worth hanging on to in most fantasy leagues.

Texans WR Keke Coutee confirmed that the hamstring he injured in today's game against the Jaguars is the same one that cost him the first 3 games of the season. He said afterward that the injury “isn’t as bad as previous one” but conceded that he’s unlikely to play against the Dolphins on Thursday night.

Texans WR Keke Coutee injured his hamstring in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Jaguars. The rookie missed the first 3 games of the season with hamstring trouble, although it's unclear if this is related. He's officially questionable to return today.

Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Cowboys. We've heard nothing to suggest that Coutee is in danger of missing this one, but it's worth noting that he missed the first 3 games of the season with a hamstring issue. For what it's worth, Coutee was limited in practice all last week but wasn't listed on the final injury report. We'll look for an update on his status on Sunday morning.

Texans WR Bruce Ellington has been placed on IR with a hamstring injury suffered in last week's loss to the Giants. He had been serving as Houston's #3 WR. That job should go to rookie Keke Coutee as soon as he gets over his own hamstring injury. WRs DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller will continue to dominate Texans targets.

Texans rookie WR Keke Coutee took the field Wednesday for the 1st time since the opening week of training camp. He had been dealing with a hamstring injury. When asked what he expects for Coutee going forward, HC Bill O'Brien said, "I don't know yet." He added: "He's been in the training room for about four weeks. He's got a long way to go." Coutee is an exciting athlete who was expected to push for slot duty right away. We'll see how quickly he can work back into the picture. It's tough to envision a big fantasy impact in 2018, but he's an intriguing stash for dynasty leagues.

Texans WR Keke Coutee is expected to miss "a few weeks" with a hamstring injury, according to the Houston Chronicle. Coutee had a buzzy spring and looked like the favorite for Houston's #3 WR job. But this injury hurts his chances of making an early-season impact. The rookie isn't worth a roster spot in standard-sized redraft leagues.
