Interim coach Romeo Crennel said Monday that there is "a good possibility" Cobb (toe) will not return in 2020, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports. The 30-year-old was placed on IR shortly after injuring his toe Week 11, and Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports that the veteran slot man could require offseason surgery. If it's indeed deemed that Cobb isn't fit to return for the Texans' final three games, Keke Coutee and Chad Hansen will continue seeing increased playing time. Cobb is under contract with the Texans for 2021, after which point the team has a potential out that would leave them with only $2 million in dead money against the cap.
Cobb (toe) awaits further medical information and is considering not playing again in 2020, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Cobb remains in a medical boot for the injured toe suffered Week 11 against New England and is evaluating whether it makes sense for him to play again. The receiver awaits a doctor's recommendation, due next week, about whether Cobb should undergo surgery, regarding whether he should undergo surgery and not play again this season, or rehabilitate the toe and attempt to play. If Cobb opts to shut it down, Keke Coutee and Chad Hansen would be the primary beneficiaries.
The Titans placed Cobb (toe) on injured reserve Wednesday. Cobb's move to IR officially rules him out for at least three games. Along with Cobb, the Texans will also be without Kenny Stills (quadriceps) for Thursday's game against the Lions, so look for Keke Coutee to see an uptick in playing time as the Texans' No. 3 receiver behind Will Fuller and Brandin Cooks.
Cobb (toe) is seeking a second medical opinion, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Cobb has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Lions, but he's not accepting the initial diagnosis of a season-ending injury until he hears from a second doctor. Cobb was injured early in Sunday's win over New England and replaced by Keke Coutee, who caught his first touchdown of the season.
Cobb (toe) is in danger of being placed on injured reserve, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Cobb is expected to miss at least Thursday's game against the Lions due to the severity of his toe issue, and being placed on IR would rule him out for a minimum of two additional weeks. An absence of any length for the veteran slot man could open up additional playing time for Keke Coutee, who scored his first TD of the season during Sunday's 27-20 win over the Patriots.
