Sunday, Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins was pulled from a 28-23 loss to the Oakland Raiders at Reliant Stadium due to making multiple mental errors.
“Bottom line, DeAndre made a lot of mistakes early in the game, so we gave another guy a chance to play,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said.
Hopkins acknowledged his issues. The No. 27 overall pick of the 2013 draft continues to learn that the NFL season only gets tougher and more demanding as the year unfolds.
“It’s a long season, but we can endure it,” said Hopkins, who only had one catch for seven yards against the Raiders.
Hopkins did get back on the field late in the game but only finished with one catch for seven yards. It's a likely sign that he shouldn't miss any playing time next week as further punishment. At this point, it's unclear who will be throwing Hopkins the ball in Week 12.
