Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins passes concussion tests, cleared to play
Texans rookie wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins has been given the green light to play Monday night versus the Chargers after passing his final concussion test. Hopkins suffered a concussion on Aug. 17 during the Texans' second preseason game. It is the second known concussion of his football career as Hopkins was knocked unconscious and sustained a concussion in a 2011 car crash.
I don't think Hopkins has as much upside as rookie wideouts such as Tavon Austin and Kenbrell Thompkins. But as a WR5 in 12-team leagues, he is a safe choice.
