Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins is ready to play.

Hopkins, the rookie who suffered a concussion in the preseason, has passed all the tests as part of the NFL’s concussion protocol and is ready to go for the Monday opener against the Chargers, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

As the Texans’ first-round draft pick, Hopkins is expected to play an important role in the passing game opposite Andre Johnson. Hopkins was drawing rave reviews for his work in training camp, and he played very well in the preseason before suffering a concussion in the second game. He’s been sidelined since.

But now he’s back, and he’ll be in the starting lineup on Monday night.

    1st time in Andre Johnson’s career he has a more than capable #2 WR across from him.

    This Texans offense is loaded.

    Not only do they have him, but Posey was coming on strong last year at the end of the season until he hurt his Achilles, and he’s back now as well.

    Teams won’t be able to stack against the run or just double on Andre all game long like last season.

    NFL starts in 2 days….

    Let that sink in a moment….

    2 days!!

    I can’t wait.

    I think Nuk is going to be a serious red zone threat. he just has that go up and get it mentality. His TD in preseason was outstanding and really showed that mentality.
