Coates worked out for the Cowboys on Friday, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.
Coates was cut by the Texans on Tuesday, and has wasted no time in searching for a depth role elsewhere in the league. If Coates were to land in Dallas, he'd likely serve a deep depth role behind Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, Cole Beasley, Allen Hurns and Tavon Austin (groin).
Coates was released by the Texans on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Coates appeared in 12 games with the Texans this season, but caught just one pass on two targets as he spent of majority of his time on special teams. The 25-year-old Auburn product will look to catch on elsewhere with the 2018 regular season winding down.
Coates (illness) is active for Monday's game against the Titans.
Coates received the questionable tag after being added to the injury report Saturday with an undisclosed illness, but he's apparently good to go Monday. The 24-year-old should serve his usual role as the Texans' No. 4 wide receiver with DeAndre Hopkins (foot) and Keke Coutee (hamstring) both active.
Coates is questionable for Monday's game against the Titans due to an illness.
Coates was a late addition to the injury report and did not participate at Saturday's practice. The 25-year-old has made only one catch this season and with DeAndre Hopkins and Keke Coutee avoiding injury designations this, is unlikely to significantly involved offensively even if able to play.
Coates and Vyncint Smith are the in-house options to fill in for the injured Will Fuller (knee) in Week 9 against Denver, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Coates has served as the primary return man this season while playing just 35 offensive snaps in 2018. With Keke Coutee (hamstring) uncertain, both Coates and Smith may get increased chances, although we expect a heavy reliance on Houston's ground attack, which has averaged nearly 165 yards over the last two games, or a search on the trade market for wideout help.
