But the question at wide receiver is that of health. Will Fuller continues to get injured just as he seems set to emerge as one of the NFL’s top deep threats. Demaryius Thomas is an older player coming off an Achilles tear. Keke Coutee’s hamstrings strain at the slightest semblance of a downfield route.

Even DeAndre Hopkins was battling injuries at the end of the 2018 season, which ultimately led to his decision to not play in the Pro Bowl]]> 5414289 Fri, 18 Jan 2019 16:45:01 EDT Texans Wire
<![CDATA[Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins opts out of 2019 Pro Bowl]]> DeAndre Hopkins opted out of the 2019 Pro Bowl on Thursday due to a shoulder injury sustained in the team’s 21-7 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in the wild-card playoffs on Jan. 5.

Replacing Hopkins will be Cleveland Browns receiver Jarvis Landry, who caught 81 passes for 976 yards and four touchdowns to help the Browns finish with an optimistic 7-8-1 record.

The exhibition game would interfere with Hopkins’ plans to recuperate during the off-season.

The former 2013 first-round pick from Clemson tied receiver Andre Johnson’s 2008 record for single-season catches with 115. Hopkins also collected 1,576 yards and 11 touchdowns as virtually the Texans’ lone receiving threat]]> 5413907 Thu, 17 Jan 2019 23:15:01 EDT Texans Wire
<![CDATA[WR Jamarius Way an option for Texans to add receiver depth]]> DeAndre Hopkins is the best in the league hands down, Will Fuller is one of the best deep threats around, and Keke Coutee has shown great promise as a shifty slot receiver.

But as is so frequently the story down in Houston, injuries have hampered this group. Both Coutee and Fuller were limited in appearances last season, and even Fuller’s eventual replacement Demaryius Thomas was cut down by a late-season injury.

With few backups available that have any real NFL experience or outstanding talent to speak of, depth is needed, especially behind Fuller. His role in this offense is key in drawing attention away from Hopkins, while also stretching the field with his speed. When Thomas stepped in the idea was he would simply take over this role, and while he showed glimpses of promise, he lacked that speed — not to mention the fact that he is due $14 million if they opt to keep him for next season]]> 5413797 Thu, 17 Jan 2019 20:27:02 EDT Texans Wire
