HOUSTON (CBS HOUSTON) - The Houston Texans first pick from the 2013 draft appears to be ready to make his regular season debut in week one.  Wide Receiver DeAndre Hopkins cleared the final stage of the NFL’s mandated concussion protocol allowing him to resume activity on the field with the team.

The team believes he will be fine and ready to play against the Chargers on Monday night in San Diego.

Hopkins was injured when his head struck the ground early in the Texans second preseason game against the Miami Dolphins.  After the final preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys, Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said that Hopkins still hadn’t passed the final concussion test, but was doing fine.

The NFL mandates all players diagnosed with a concussion pass a five part concussion test before they are allowed to play again.
