Houston Texans All-Pro wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins has been cleared for the starting week of training camp and preseason activities for the 2019 season.
Houston Texans’ talented wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins has been given the green light to take part of their training camp activities from here on out. Hopkins was removed from the physically unable to perform list that he was placed on Sunday after undergoing surgery and rehabbing from injuries he sustained in the 2018 NFL season.
It did not take long for him to make the circus one-handed catches that he has accustomed fans and opponents alike. Drew Dougherty of Texans TV shared the footage on his Twitter account.
Hopkins was out on the practice field taking part of the drills with quarterbacks Deshaun Watson and A.J. McCarron. He was with his other wide receiver teammates that included Texans’ 2016 first-rounder, Will Fuller, who is coming back after tearing his ACL midway through the 2018 season against the Miami Dolphins.
The Texans tandem at wide receiver is one of the most promising young cores in the NFL and have the opportunity to become one of the better ones in the league if they are able to stay healthy. Hopkins proved to be one of the best wideouts in the league last season despite playing through foot, ankle, hamstring, and shoulder injuries.
Hopkins finished the season recording 115 receptions, 1,572 receiving yards, and 11 touchdown receptions through the 16 games of the Texans regular season. He remained the focal point of the offense and produced despite the injuries that struck the Texans receiving core throughout the season.
