Houston rookie Hopkins off to great start

By  | 

HOUSTON (AP) - The Houston Texans have grown accustomed to watching star receiver Andre Johnson make spectacular grabs.

Just two games into his NFL career, the Texans are already beginning to expect equally dazzling catches from DeAndre Hopkins.

Hopkins reached above a defender to pull in a 3-yard touchdown reception to give Houston a 30-24 overtime win over the Titans.

Johnson was knocked out of that game with a concussion. And with his status uncertain for Sunday's game against Baltimore, the rookie could be needed again.

Quarterback Matt Schaub says he's been impressed with how Hopkins has handled critical situations, and is eager to see how much better he can get.
