Thanks to the inimitable Wotan, this tweet came across the ol’ BRB timeline tonight:

In the wake of Will Fuller’s injury and the ankle Braxton Miller tweaked in Houston’s preseason opener, he Texans need help at wide receiver. Hopper is undoubtedly a long shot to make the Texans’ 53-man roster, but it’s easy to root for him to do just that after reading Emily Kaplan’s pre-draft profile of him. It’ll be interesting to see how much, if at all, Hopper sees the field at NRG Stadium against the Patriots on Saturday night.
