O'Brien: "not hopeful" for Coutee in Week 1 | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

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 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 WR Keke Coutee (ankle) put in a full practice on Wednesday. Barring a setback, he should be ready to make his 2019 debut against the Jaguars on Sunday. We'll have to see how Coutee fits alongside WRs DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller and Kenny Stills -- so we'd try not to use Coutee in Week 2 fantasy lineups.

Texans WR Keke Coutee is inactive for tonight's game against the Saints. Coutee's working back from his preseason ankle sprain and managed limited practices all week. He seems likely to be ready for Week 2. We'll keep an eye on his status.

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 WR Keke Coutee (ankle) put in a limited practice on Thursday. HC Bill O'Brien has gone back and forth over the past week on Coutee's Week 1 status. Unless he's able to put in a full practice on Friday or Saturday, we'd avoid him in Week 1 fantasy lineups.
