The five-time Pro Bowl receiver made three catches for 61 yards to help the Texans defeat the Denver Broncos 20-19.

With nearly three weeks of practice under his belt, Thomas is expected to see his role grow moving forward this season. Thanks to consistent work with quarterback Deshaun Watson, Thomas is feeling much more comfortable in Texans coach Bill O’Brien’s offense.

“I think it helped, but you’ve also got to get the repetitions, too,” Thomas said. “Repetitions really help more. It’s doing it instead of seeing it. I got a chance to be with D4 (Deshaun Watson), I was with him as well, so it was mainly just hearing it and then walking through it.]]>

According to Texans receivers coach John Perry via Deepi Sidhu of HoustonTexans.com, Thomas has been showing tremendous initiative to become a reliable part of the offense despite being traded on Oct. 30 from the Denver Broncos.

“One of the things we talked about [Monday] was he needs his break and time and everything like that and get the transition here to Houston full-time,” said Perry. “But really taking it upon himself to really get the fundamentals of what we’re trying to do.

Five-time Pro-Bowl receiver Demaryius Thomas is just one game into his Houston Texans career following a deadline day trade from the Denver Broncos, but by all accounts, he is settling in well, as his former teammate and current coach Wes Welker attested to on Tuesday.

“Demaryius is a sharp guy, is a real pro and has been around the league for a long time,” said Welker. “He’s actually been in this system — although things have changed a little bit — but some of the terminology was the same from his rookie year and some of his early years there in Denver. He’s done a great job of staying on top of the game plan and hopefully that should get better as we go.]]>

This comes after the Texans waived him on Oct. 31, following the trade for 30-year-old former All-Pro receiver Demaryius Thomas with the Denver Broncos in a trade last week.

Ellington had been with the Houston since the 2017 season, active primarily as a slot receiver, and filling in on the outside when necessary.  He totaled just 14 appearances with 37 catches for 422 receiving yards and three touchdowns.

With the signing of Thomas and the emergence of rookie slot receiver Keke Coutee, Ellington’s chances of returning to a starting role in Houston were slim to none barring injuries]]>
