Draft Scout News
09/28/15 - WR DeAndre Hopkins made a healthy and successful return Sunday from a concussion suffered last week against the Carolina Panthers.
In a 19-9 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Hopkins caught eight passes for 101 yards and a touchdown as he was targeted 14 times. Hopkins passed the mandatory baseline neurological exam and was listed as probable on the injury report as he returned to practice Friday.
Hopkins grabbed his head at one point after landing on his helmet in the first half, but it was out of frustration that he didn't make a sideline catch.
"I felt good," Hopkins said. "We got the win. That's all that matters. It feels great."
Hopkins said it was the second concussion of his career in the NFL. The former first-round draft pick sustained one in college at Clemson.
"It was a concussion," Hopkins said. "A normal concussion."
Hopkins caught a touchdown on a slant pass from quarterback Ryan Mallett.
"That was just Mallett making a play, giving me a signal to be able to make a play and that's on him," Hopkins said.
In the fourth quarter, Mallett connected with Hopkins on a 30-yard pass that led to a touchdown run by Alfred Blue.
"This is why we practice," Hopkins said. "We do a lot of stuff outside of just the practice field, working after practice on that timing and seeing things that the defense is going to do to make last-minute adjustments."
09/21/15 - WR DeAndre Hopkins had five catches for 53 yards, but on 11 targets against the Panthers.
09/14/15 - WR DeAndre Hopkins caught nine passes for 98 yards and two touchdowns on 13 targets.
09/13/15 - WR DeAndre Hopkins scored 14 total points (two receiving touchdowns, one two-point conversion), which is the second-highest single-game total by a wide receiver in team history. Hopkins passed RB Arian Foster (2,041) for the fourth-most career receiving yards in team history. He finished the day with nine catches for 98 yards.
08/28/15 - WR DeAndre Hopkins has emerged as the leader of the receiving corps, on and off the field, and is expected to be heavily targeted by new starting quarterback Brian Hoyer.
