DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Week 2 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Hopkins didn’t practice all week because of an ankle injury, and now his status for Sunday’s game is officially up in the air. He’s listed as questionable, and the team will make a decision about his availability sometime closer to kickoff. If he’s out, Treylon Burks and Chigoziem Okonkwo will both have to play bigger roles in this passing attack in his absence.

What the Experts Are Saying
Hopkins popped up on the injury report on Wednesday with an ankle issue that caused him to miss practice. In Week 1, he garnered a 38.2% target share and 46.3% air yard share, but he was held in check as Marshon Lattimore followed him on 42% of his routes, holding him to 24 receiving yards in shadow coverage. Hopkins finished the day with seven grabs and 65 receiving yards. If Hopkins can go, he’ll run about 65% of his routes against J.C. Jackson and Michael Davis, who combined to allow a 55.6% catch rate, 189 receiving yards, and three scores last week. Hopkins is a WR2/3.
