Rookie Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins will be back on the field for the Monday Night Game against our San Diego Chargers. Hopkins suffered a concussion in the preseason and he passed his concussion tests, so he is able to join in with the Texans during practice.

Hopkins is a talented receiver that should be getting the start opposite of Andre Johnson. He will give the team another option in the passing game. The Texans have been trying to find a receiving threat to place opposite of Johnson and they think they have found it.

Time for the Chargers defenders to shut them down. Derek Cox and Shareece Wright will have a tough task in their first game of the season. Time to see what these two really can do. The preseason wet our appetite, or made us want to throw up, but the starters will be in the game for every snap and we can see what we really have on this roster. Time to shut down the Texans passing attack.
