Texas WR Randall Cobb (toe) likely out Week 12; WR Kenny Stills (quad) gets MRI

Randall Cobb is expected to be out for least the Texans' game against the Detroit Lions, if not longer, according to league sources not authorized to speak publicly. Cobb underwent a magnetic resonance imaging exam Monday, as will wide receiver Kenny Stills for an injured quadriceps.

The initial diagnosis on Stills is it isn't considered serious, per sources. The Texans are expected to re-evaluate Cobb's injury after the Detroit game to determine if he can return this season.

Fantasy Impact: 

Writer Aaron Wilson tweeted Cobb's toe injury is regarded as serious enough that team could place him on injured reserve, being out at least three weeks, no roster move yet, per sources. Buried on the depth chart all season, and once a popular dynasty league fantasy pickup, Coutee ended up catching a TD with Cobb and Stills out of the game. He could move up the depth chart if both are out for Thursday's game against the Lions, which is obviously on a short week, possibly making him the team's WR3. Coutee could have some value in deeper leagues but would be hard to trust in lineups.
