Cooks leads the Texans with 32 catches for 354 yards this season.

The team already had ruled out four other players. Defensive lineman Maliek Collins (chest), wide receiver Nico Collins (groin), linebacker Neville Hewitt (hamstring) and defensive lineman Justin McCray (concussion) are nursing injuries.

Defensive back Isaac Yiadom and offensive lineman Austin Deculus are the other inactives for Houston.

The Eagles already had ruled out cornerback Josiah Scott (ankle).

The team’s other inactives are quarterback Ian Book, running back Trey Sermon, offensive guard Josh Sills and offensive guard Sua Opeta.

Opeta has played all seven games, seeing action on offensive in five of those.

  1. At the end of his career, what memories he’ll have… shuffling around to different teams, being disgruntled much of the time, refusing to practice, complaining about his contracts, being inactive on gameday because he was pouting… you know, all the great accomplishments that make up a storied football career.
