  • Texans' DeAndre Hopkins: Not worried about shoulder

    Hopkins (shoulder) isn't worried about his health and says he's excited to work with new offensive coordinator Tim Kelly, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports. "Oh man, I'm good," Hopkins said. "I got a long time until our next game, so I'll be fine."

    Hopkins was listed on every injury report after Week 1 in 2018, but he never came close to missing any games despite dealing with thumb, ankle, foot and hamstring injuries. He then hurt the AC joint in his right shoulder during a playoff loss to the Colts, referring to the injury as a Grade 3 sprain after the game. It isn't entirely clear the initial diagnosis was accurate, as Hopkins' ability to continue playing might be taken as a hint that he actually suffered a Grade 2 sprain. In any case, it was probably an easy decision to withdraw from the Pro Bowl and focus on getting healthy before the Texans start their offseason program in mid-April. The team will have an offensive coordinator for the first time since 2016, with Kelly getting a promotion after coaching tight ends last season. Head coach Bill O'Brien still figures to run the show on offense and call plays.

  • Texans' Will Fuller: Faces challenge to stay healthy

    Coach Bill O'Brien said the Texans need to figure out how to keep Fuller (knee) and Keke Coutee healthy in 2019, Drew Dougherty of the team's official website reports.

    The young wide receivers played just seven games apiece (including playoffs) during the 2018 campaign, with the rookie battling a nagging hamstring injury and Fuller suffering a torn ACL on Oct. 25. The latter is a far greater concern for 2019, as Fuller faces a lengthy rehab process that may stretch into training camp or even threaten his Week 1 availability. Heading into his age-25 season, the oft-injured, 180-pound wideout has piled up 783 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns in the 11 games he's played with Deshaun Watson at quarterback. It's hard to find a WR group with more upside than Houston's, though only DeAndre Hopkins is a sure thing among the bunch. It won't come as any surprise if the Texans invest in the position this offseason, even though they already have their ideal three-wide alignment (Hopkins-Fuller-Coutee).

  • Texans' Justin Reid: Headed for wrist surgery

    Reid (ribs) is scheduled for surgery on his wrist this week, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Reid missed the second half of a playoff loss to Indianapolis while nursing a rib injury, but his wrist appears to be a bigger concern for the offseason. The 2018 third-round pick started 12 of 16 games as a rookie, piling up 88 tackles (70 solo), 10 passes defensed, three interceptions, two fumble recoveries, one forced fumble and one touchdown. Reid should make a full recovery before training camp and appears to be locked in as a starting safety.

  • Texans' Seantrel Henderson: Will remain in Houston

    Henderson (ankle) signed a one-year, $4.5 million contract with the Texans on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Henderson signed a one-year deal with the Texans last March and began the season as the team's starting right tackle, only to suffer a broken ankle in the season opener. Houston will likely look for the 26-year-old to fill the same role heading into the 2019 season.
