Hopkins (knee) had five catches on 12 targets for 118 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Jets. Lining up against Darrelle Revis for most of the game, Hopkins made the Jets' corner look like a rookie, beating him a number of times, including on a 61-yard touchdown while lined up one-on-one. The change under center from Brian Hoyer to T.J. Yates did nothing to limit Hopkins' production, as he was targeted twice as much as the next highest receiver. His two touchdowns now give him nine this season, tying him for the most in franchise history. Up next is a Week 12 matchup against a Saints defense that has been awful against the pass this season.
Hopkins (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jets. Though he figures to draw the capable coverage of Darrelle Revis, Hopkins should still see his share of looks from QB T.J. Yates on Sunday. Through his first nine games this season, Hopkins leads the NFL with 125 targets, and has been targeted at least 11 times per contest thus far.
Hopkins (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Jets. After missing back-to-back practices Wednesday and Thursday, Hopkins returned to a limited session Friday, with the probable designation backing up the wideout's previously-stated confidence with regard to his Week 11 playing status. Hopkins, who has seen at least 11 targets in all nine of the Texans' game this season, figures to remain busy on Sunday, though due to Brian Hoyer's concussion, backup T.J. Yates will start at QB for the Texans this weekend.
Despite missing back-to-back practices Wednesday and Thursday with a knee issue, Hopkins indicated Thursday, "I'm good. I'm 100 percent." Hopkins' declaration supports the notion that he should be a go Sunday against the Jets, but it will take a return to practice Friday on his part for our optimism regarding that outcome to be solidified.
Coach Bill O'Brien indicated Thursday that he believes Hopkins (knee) will be ready to play Sunday against the Jets, ESPN's Tania Ganguli reports. Such an outcome will certain appear more likely if Hopkins is able to practice in any capacity Friday, more so, if he is able to turn in a full session to close the week, after registering back-to-back absences both Wednesday and Thursday.
