DeAndre Hopkins "ready to go" vs. Jets

It's business as usual for DeAndre Hopkins, despite making a spectacular one-handed, game-winning touchdown catch on primetime television Monday night.

Listed with a knee issue on the official injury report, Hopkins is expected to start on Sunday. Hopkins did not participate in Wednesday or Thursday's practice, won't be affected for the Texans Week 11 matchup against the Jets.

"Yeah, I think he'll be able to go," head coach Bill O'Brien said Thursday. "I think DeAndre's played a lot of football for us so I think he'll remember the plays and I think he'll be ready to go."

When asked, Hopkins said he was "100 percent" after doing individual work off to the side during Thursday's practice. The third-year wide receiver caught the game-winning touchdown in Monday night's 10-6 win in Cincinnati and finished the game with five receptions for 57 yards as well as the score.

"It was a big win for us," Hopkins said. "We don't want to sit here and dwell on the past. Move forward, on to the Jets. That's who we are working on right now."

The Texans will host the Jets on Sunday in their annual Salute to Service Day game. Kickoff is set for noon CT on CBS KHOU-11 and SportsRadio 610.
