The Houston Texans will be without their best current wide receiver in Week 14.
Once again the Houston Texans and quarterback Deshaun Watson will have their backs against the wall when it comes to their wide receivers in Week 14 as the Texans are on the road facing the Chicago Bears.
It was released on Sunday that wide receiver Brandin Cooks is inactive for the Week 14 game at Soldier Field when the Houston Texans take on the Bears. Cooks was the best remaining wide receiver for the Texans after the suspension of Will Fuller a couple weeks ago, plus an injury to Randall Cobb. The Texans also released Kenny Still a few weeks ago.
Cooks this season has 57 receptions for 784 yards and three touchdowns. In 2020, Cooks is averaging 13.8 yards per reception, with his longest reception being 57 yards.
Also listed on the inactive list for the Week 14 game for the Houston Texans (provided by the Houston Texans Twitter page): Josh McCown (quarterback), Phillip Gaines (cornerback), John Reid (cornerback), Charlie Heck (tackle), Hjalte Froholdt (guard), and Pharaoh Brown (tight end).
One player who is finally on the active game roster is rookie wide receiver Isaiah Coulter due to the injury of Cooks. This will be the first time in his career that the rookie wide receiver will be on the active game day roster. Also watch for Keke Coutee to be a big target in this game.
It was reported earlier this week that Gaines was going to be inactive for the Houston Texans due to a knee and should issue. Reid is out for the game due to a neck injury. Cooks on Friday was listed on the injury report due to a neck injury. Brown is out with a concussion.
The Houston Texans kickoff with the Chicago Bears at noon CT on CBS for their Week 14 game. The Bears at 5-7 overall and the Texans are 4-8 overall this season.
