Keke Coutee could be close to returning, after missing the last two games with a hamstring injury.
“I think Keke is trending upwards,” head coach Bill O’Brien said Monday. “I think Keke’s headed in the right direction.”
When asked if he could return for Sunday’s game at Washington, Coutee was optimistic and said it was “a high possibility.”
Following the Texans bye week, the rookie from Texas Tech was on practice field with the team on Monday, the story said. The Texans travel to Washington for an early afternoon game, so owners counting on him will know his status before the kickoff of the early games.
