The Houston Texans are still struggling with injuries on offense, and it's looking bad for the concussed Deandre Hopkins. The receiver again wasn't able to practice on Thursday, as he has yet to pass a concussion test. If he can't pass it by gametime Sunday, he won't be able to suit up against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Arian Foster was again limited, and Bill O'Brien noted yesterday that he was unlikely to suit up. Left tackle Duane Brown missed his second practice this week and is also exceedingly unlikely to play on Sunday, further crippling an already anemic offense.

As for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Major Wright and Evan Smith missed today's practice, which means they're probably not going to make Sunday's game. Gerald McCoy, Mike Jenkins and D.J. Swearinger were limited for the second straight day, but should be able to go against the Texans. T.J. Fatinikun was limited again and after missing the past two games, it's not clear whether he'll be ready.

Finally, Mike Evans had no limitations in practice for the second straight game and should have no problem playing all of the offensive snaps against the Texans.
