Brandin Cooks, WR (HOU)

Gets questionable tag for Week 13

Cooks (illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Cooks is one of six men on the Texans' Week 13 injury report due to an ailment, though none of those players' illnesses are related to COVID-19. Though Cooks may still be working to regain conditioning after sitting out practice sessions Wednesday and Thursday, his ability to return to the field as a limited participant Friday bodes well for his chances of being able to serve as Houston's No. 1 wideout come Sunday. Fantasy managers planning on deploying Cooks in weekly lineups will get official clarity on his status no later than 90 minutes before Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff, when Houston will release its inactive list.
