Coach Bill O'Brien called Coutee (hamstring) "day-to-day" Monday, Deepi Sidhu of the Texans' official site reports. O'Brien and his players pay a visit to Philadelphia on Sunday to take on the suddenly relevant Eagles, a contest for which injured Texans will be considered game-time decisions. Coutee has suited up just twice in seven attempts since Week 7, so O'Brien should be taken at his word regarding the rookie wide receiver, barring his designation getting removed entirely during Week 16 prep.
Coutee (hamstring) will not play Saturday against the Jets. Coutee was listed as questionable on the Texans' final injury report of the week, but he did not travel to New York with the rest of his teammates, which removes any chance of him playing Week 15. While fantasy players will not have Coutee available this week, they will be afforded more time to identify a replacement.
Coutee (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Jets. Coutee was a limited participant in practices Tuesday through Thursday, which has been fairly standard activity for the wideout this season while he's dealt with a hamstring issue that has forced multi-game absences on three different occasions. The rookie's latest setback has cost him two games, but coach Bill O'Brien indicated earlier this week that Coutee is "trending toward being able to play" versus New York. It's unclear if O'Brien's assessment of the situation still holds water, but Coutee should be viewed as at least a game-time decision for Week 15. Fortunately for those depending on Coutee in fantasy lineups, the fact that the Texans and Jets are playing Saturday rather than Sunday will leave managers with plenty of time to pivot to an alternative in the event he ends up on the inactive list again.
Coutee (hamstring) was a limited participant at Tuesday's walkthrough. Coach Bill O'Brien said earlier Tuesday that Coutee remains day-to-day but is trending toward playing against the Jets on Saturday, and his participation at the walkthrough falls in line with that sentiment. The 21-year-old has missed the last two games while being limited in practice, so he'll need to progress to full participation by Friday in order to have much confidence in his availability. DeAndre Carter is in the concussion protocol, potentially leaving the Texans thin at wide receiver behind top options DeAndre Hopkins (foot) and Demaryius Thomas.
Coach Bill O'Brien relayed Tuesday that Coutee (hamstring) remains day-to-day but is "trending toward being able to play" this weekend against the Jets, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. The rookie wideout has been out for the last two games with the hamstring issue, which previously sidelined him from Weeks 1 through 3 and for Weeks 8 and 9. Since experiencing his latest setback, Coutee hasn't been able to advance beyond limited practice participation, so he may need to put in a full workout at some point before Friday to back up O'Brien's optimism. The Texans are lacking in healthy options beyond top receivers DeAndre Hopkins and Demaryius Thomas after DeAndre Carter, who had been serving as Coutee's primary replacement in the slot, exited the Week 14 loss to the Colts with a concussion.
