DeAndre Hopkins active for Week 17, but could get rest

DeAndre Hopkins won’t suit up as the Texans rest key starters against the Titans

The Houston Texans will likely rest key starters this week, but wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins will suit up while Kenny Stills and Will Fuller are out. The Chargers are giving the Chiefs a game, but Kansas City just went up 24-14 and if they win, the Texans are locked into the No. 4 seed and will have no reason to risk their top players.

The Texans look like they will start DeAndre Carter, Keke Coutee and Steven Mitchell according to beat writer Aaron Wilson. Their opponent, the Titans, should get an easier time against the Texans, and they’d love to take advantage, as a win gets them into them into the last wild card spot.
