Which Texans’ receiver will start with DeAndre Hopkins? – By Tania Ganguli of ESPN

"Ganguli: The top options here include free-agent pickups Nate Washington (31) and Cecil Shorts III (27), and rookie Jaelen Strong, who was taken in the third round with the 70th pick in this year’s draft. Strong’s start has been delayed a bit, and we’ll get to that more later. Coach Bill O’Brien was effusive in his praise of Washington last week. “I really like Nate. I think he’s been a good addition to our football team, both from a veteran leadership standpoint and then from his route-running ability. He’s really practiced hard all spring. He’s been here a lot. He’s been out there every day at practice. He’s picked up our offense well. He’s always communicating with the other receivers and the quarterbacks. I think he’s going to add a lot to our offense. I’m glad he’s here.”"

"SPOILER ALERT!!! Read no further if you aren’t caught up on Game of Thrones. Seriously, you’ve been warned.It’s not even been 24 hours and the world is reeling from the events in Westeros. By world, I mean everyone who’s been sucked into the past ten episodes of Game of Thrones. How can one season finale have so many cliffhangers, by the way?If you don’t watch it, feel free to roll your eyes at those of us obsessed with King’s Landing, dragons, white walkers, big-budget battle scenes, and the rather unceremonious killing of beloved main characters.The fifth season of Thrones, televised Sunday night, got some reaction from Texans players as well."
