Houston (CBS Houston) – Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak had an update on the progress of both veteran left guard Wade Smith and rookie receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

Smith underwent arthroscopic knee surgery earlier this month and the Texans’ assumed he might not be ready for the season opener in San Diego, September 9.

“We don’t have him on the field, yet were pointing towards maybe Monday,” Kubiak said Thursday. “He’s going to be very close and his work has been excellent. He’s doing a good job.”

Hopkins suffered a concussion Saturday night against the Miami Dolphins and had to leave the field in the second quarter.  Kubiak said he’s in “phase one” of the NFL’s five-stage concussion protocol.
