DeAndre Hopkins has quietly established himself as a top-5 wide receiver in the NFL. Hopkins, now in in his third year down in Houston, is catching passes from his newest QB, Brock Osweiler, of course formerly of the Denver Broncos.

Osweiler hit Hopkins on a short pass during the first quarter of the team’s Preseason Week 3 game against the Cardinals, and Hopkins did the rest, hitting Arizona CB Mike Jenkins with a juke so hard, suffered a serious leg injury.


Jenkins had to be carted off the field, having appeared to have torn a major knee ligament or broken his leg.
