DALLAS (CBS Houston) - Houston Texans first round pick, DeAndre Hopkins, still has not passed the NFL mandated concussion protocol to allow him back on the field.  However, Texans head coach Gary Kubiak is not worried about Hopkins missing week one.

“He’s fine,” Kubiak said of the young Wide Receiver, “I think if we weren’t here in Dallas and we were back with our doctors in Houston he would pass [the protocol] today.  So, I don’t see any problem. “

Hopkins received the concussion in the first series of the second preseason game against the Miami Dolphins.   The Texans are looking for Hopkins to make an immediate impact as another threat on an already powerful offense.

If Hopkins can come back and play to the ability he showed in training camp and the first preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings the Texans are hoping it will make their already potent offense that much harder to stop.

Hopkins has passed the first 4 stages of the protocol and just needs to pass the fifth for the team to allow him to participate in team activities, practices and games.
