The Houston Texans had limited participation from nine players during Thursday’s practice, including four wide receivers.
Thursday’s Houston Texans injury report was released during the afternoon and for the 0-1 team there were nine players listed on the report due to limited participation, including wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins and defensive end Jadeveon Clowney.
For Hopkins he was listed on the injury report with a foot issue, and for Clowney is was for back and elbow issues.
On Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reported on Hopkins and how he fared at practice.
"“DeAndre Hopkins has a foot injury, but looked mobile during practice.”"
Others on the list were cornerback Johnson Bademosi (knee), wide receiver Sammie Coates Jr. (hamstring), wide receiver Keke Coutee (hamstring), defensive end Duke Ejiofor (hamstring), defensive end Christian Covington (thigh/knee), wide receiver Will Fuller (hamstring) and cornerback Kayvon Webster (Achilles).
According to the injury release, limited participation means the players practiced in less than 100-percent of their normal repetitions.
The Texans will be most likely be without Webster, but what is really interesting to see is if Fuller will be able to suit up for the game this Sunday against the Titans. If Fuller plays this would be his first game of the season, as he missed Week 1 against the New England Patriots with the same hamstring issue. Fuller only played in 10 games last season having 28 receptions for 423 yards and seven touchdowns.
Hopkins last week against the Patriots had eight receptions for 78 yards, and is coming off 1,378 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns in 2017. As for Webster, he’ll most likely miss another week as he missed the season-opener as well with his continued recovery of his Achilles injury.
As the week continues it will be interesting to see which players are able to play on Sunday in Week 2 in Nashville.
