Texans take care with WR Hopkins

(TSX / STATS) -- HOUSTON -- As star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins continues to watch from the sidelines, the Houston Texans are maintaining a cautious approach with the one-time Pro-Bowl selection as he recovers from a hand injury.

Hopkins hasn't practiced since getting dinged up during the Texans' preseason opener against the Carolina Panthers. It's not regarded as serious, but the Texans don't want to take any chances with arguably their most dangerous offensive weapon as they prepare for the season opener Sept. 10 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

"I think he's fine," Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said. "Look, the biggest thing with him is making sure that he feels 100 percent when he practices, making sure that when the season starts he's ready to go.
