DeAndre Hopkins passes concussion test

Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins passes the final part of the concussion protocol, allowing him to play in the opening game of the season.

DeAndre Hopkins has been cleared to play in the Houston Texans' opening game of the season.

The rookie wide receiver sustained a concussion during the team's second pre-season game, but has now passed the final part of the league's concussion protocol.

Teammate Andre Johnson told the Texans' website: "I think he's come along well. He's a rookie still. There are things he's going to have to learn.

"Now, he's really going to have to learn more on the fly because he missed pre-season games and things like that.

"I think he's done well so far and I think he's going to help us out a whole lot."

The Texans play the San Diego Chargers on Monday night.
