Houston Texans running back Duke Johnson will likely be out next week against the Baltimore Ravens.
Johnson sprained his ankle on Thursday against the Kansas City Chiefs.
It's a good think RB David Johnson looked like his old self during that matchup, because that's currently where they're leaning.
After being listed as questionable with a calf injury on the Houston Texans' injury report on Wednesday, it looks like there could be a chance for wide receiver Brandin Cooks to play in tonight's game.
Cooks will likely be a game-time decision (god, I have missed saying that), and will workout before the game to determine if he's good to go.
The expectations are high for Cooks, after the team traded away star receiver DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals this offseason.
Yes, the Houston Texans really did trade away star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins this offseason (to the Arizona Cardinals). But things are so gray and blue back in Houston, especially not for still-there receiver Will Fuller, who is quite optimistic about the change.
Fuller should be the one to pick up in a lot of the places where Hopkins left off, however there's one factor there that we are all still unsure about -- his injury history. Fuller is a solid, while not exactly a No.1 guy, piece of the offense when healthy. Unfortunately, based on the evidence, we are not sure how full-speed we can count on Fuller as of now.
Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien met with the media ahead of training camp on Friday, where he was (of course) asked about Patrick Mahomes' recent contract and how it pertains to current quarterback Deshaun Watson. They love to ask those things.
It goes without saying that Watson is a special talent. While I think it's stupid to assume every 'star player' will get paid like Mahomes, Watson is definitely the best bet to get something similar.
