Houston Texans

DeAndre Hopkins (foot) was downgraded to "DNP" in Thursday's practice. It's likely just a form of rep management, though DNPs always need to be taken seriously. Hopkins also had by far his quietest game of the season in Week 7. His Friday status will be key. Provided Hopkins does play, he will be hobbled and squaring off with Jalen Ramsey. He's shaping up as a back-end WR1 for Week 7.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Leonard Fournette (hamstring) will not practice Thursday. Fournette also sat out Wednesday. Two missed practices to start the week all but ensures Fournette will miss another game. The Jaguars head to London in Week 8 before going on bye in Week 9. It is possible Fournette is out through the off week.
