1. Houston Texans News: WRs have had injury issues in recent memory

Keke Coutee has seen his share of injury issues since joining the Houston Texans in 2018, but the same thing can be said about other wide receivers on the Texans’ roster too. Injury issues of Will Fuller throughout his career, and concussion issues of Randall Cobb, make the Texans wide receiver depth chart not the safest when it comes to overall health.

That brings us back to Coutee needing to be on this roster even if in a role of being a reserve in case another speedy wide receiver becomes injured. Coutee is the perfect player to fill in for an injured player for the Texans because he knows the system, and he has a skill set of being a versatile wide receiver who can make a difference when on the field.

The Texans can’t give up on Coutee just yet, as he needs a third year with the franchise and the proper opportunity to show what he can achieve with the team. If the Texans let him go, they will regret that type of decision because of all the injury issues the Texans wide receivers could have. Coutee is the right player to keep on the roster in a reserve role.

Not only that, Keke Coutee should get a chance to play in the slot at times for the Houston Texans in 2020, because he’s yet to completely show what he’s capable of achieving with the franchise, and his role will also be determined by his health issues, too.

All in all, Keke Coutee is a mystery for the Texans in terms if he’ll stay or be asked to go elsewhere, but the potential is there for him. It all comes down to getting the chance in games to show what he’s able to achieve for the Houston Texans in 2020.
