HOUSTON (SportsRadio 610)- DeAndre Hopkins’ brilliant 2017 season will end early after the Texans Pro Bowl receiver says he will miss Sunday’s season-finale against the Indianapolis Colts with a calf injury.
“It’s my first game since I’ve been in the NFL that I’m going to miss, so I’m pretty upset about that,” Hopkins said.
Hopkins, named to his second Pro Bowl, has caught 96 passes for 1,378 yards and 13 touchdowns this season. He did not practice Wednesday or Thursday and spoke with reporters Friday.
O’Brien is certainly aware that losing Hopkins would be a big blow to his team’s offense.
“Look, if you don’t have Hop, obviously, you’re missing some production there, but other guys have to step up, but that’a decision that will be made more towards game time.”
