DeAndre Hopkins misses Monday's practice

Posted Aug 19, 2013

Wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins didn't practice Monday because of a concussion suffered Saturday night against Miami.

Wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins suffered a concussion on Saturday night, and wasn't on the practice field Monday afternoon. He won't likely suit up Sunday at Reliant Stadium against the New Orleans Saints, but he hasn't been ruled out entirely.

"He’s not feeling very good today," head coach Gary Kubiak said. "So he’s not out here at all. We’ll start over again tomorrow and see where we’re at."

The Texans held a walkthrough outside at the Houston Methodist Training Center, and Hopkins wasn't there. The NFL has a protocol that all concussed players must go through after suffering the injury.

“There’s five stages," Kubiak said. "But there’s certain stages, you can pass like two stages in a day."

Hopkins was hurt in the first half of the win over Miami on Saturday night. There's still a possibility Hopkins can play against New Orleans.

"There’s always a chance you can play the following week depending on how quickly you’re involved in the protocol process.”

The team won't practice Tuesday, and will resume work on Wednesday at the Houston Methodist Training Center.
