Rookie wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins was officially diagnosed with a concussion following the Texans second preseason game against the Dolphins Saturday night. Head coach Gary Kubiak says Hopkins is "fine," and he will go through the league's concussion protocol, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.
Hopkins caught two passes for for 22 yards before leaving in his second game. He's in jeopardy of missing the Texans next matchup against the Saints.
Fantasy impact: Owners would like to see Nuk suit up for Week 3's dress rehearsal, but it won't be surprising if he sits out going forward. Barring a setback, his concussion won't change his fantasy value heading into 2013.
Hopkins was impressive in his first preseason game, catching four passes for 52 yards and a touchdown. Consider him a WR4 right now with upside. The Texans passing game doesn't produce enough targets for him to make a huge splash on the fantasy scene, but he could be a flier in his first season.
