WR - HOU
Week 17 Outlook
Texans' HC Romeo Crennel said there is a "good possibility" that WR Randall Cobb (toe) is done for the season.
Cobb originally injured his toe in Week 11 and was placed on injured reserve. The Texans are (4-9) and have no incentive to rush the 30-year-old WR back. He is under contract with Houston for the next two campaigns after signing a three-year $27 million deal this offseason. It is unclear if Cobb will undergo surgery on his ailing toe and is expected to finish the 2020 season with 45 receptions for 568 yards and three touchdowns over 10 games. Keke Coutee will continue to handle the Texans' WR2 role while Cobb is sidelined.
Texans’ WR Randall Cobb (toe) is on injured reserve and there’s a “slim, outside chance” he plays again this season.
Cobb is currently weighing out his medical options, which includes potential surgery on his injured toe. He reportedly is unlikely to return this season. Cobb originally injured his toe in Week 11’s win over the Patriots and was placed on injured reserve. The 30-year-old WR has hauled in 38 receptions for 441 yards and three touchdowns over 10 games this season. The Texans are also down Will Fuller (suspension), look for Keke Coutee to continue to see an uptick in snaps while Cobb is sidelined.
Houston Texans wide receiver Randall Cobb has been ruled out for Thursday afternoon's contest against the Detriot Lions.
Cobb will not travel with the team and is expected to miss more than just this one game with the toe injury. The Texans will be down both Randall Cobb and Kenny Stills for Week 12, making Will Fuller, Brandin Cooks, and Jordan Akins potential target hogs. All three players see their fantasy floors raised with this news.
Texans WR Randall Cobb (toe) was listed as "DNP" on Tuesday.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports Texans WR Randall Cobb suffered a toe injury in Week 11 that is considered "significant."
