That didn't take long.
DeAndre Hopkins caught three passes in the first quarter Saturday against the Jets. That third reception was the 500th of his career, which means he's the second-youngest player in NFL history to reach that total. At 26 years, six months and nine days of age, Hopkins trailed only Larry Fitzgerald, who did it roughly four months faster than the Texans' All-Pro wideout.
At the end of the Texans' second possession, which stretched into the second quarter, Hopkins had four catches for 63 yards.
He picked up his 500th on an 11-yard completion from Deshaun Watson.
