The one consistent thing your Houston Texans have had on offense throughout the season has been DeAndre Hopkins. No matter who was playing quarterback, or how horrible the offensive line was, or how inefficient the running attack was, the Texans had Nuk, and Nuk produced.
You probably know where this is going.
Texans Pro Bowl wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins not practicing and is expected to miss his first career game Sunday due to a calf injury. Having a first team All-Pro caliber year with NFL high 13 touchdown catches. Has played in 79 consecutive games— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) December 28, 2017
Yet another blow to Texans. DeAndre Hopkins (calf) to miss the first game of his five year career. Playing with three QBs had 96 catches for 1,378 yards and 13 TDs. No. 2 receiver? RB Lamar Miller with 36 catches.— John McClain (@McClain_on_NFL) December 28, 2017
DeAndre Hopkins has never missed a game since he was drafted by the Texans in 2013. That, like the Texans’ 2017 season, ends Sunday.
