Houston Texans extensive receiver Brandin Cooks is reportedly trending towards lacking tonight`s Thursday Night Football contest towards the Philadelphia Eagles, in keeping with veteran NFL insider Ed Werder.

Cooks overlooked exercise this week for "non-public reasons." After the Texans did not change him earlier than Tuesday's deadline, the veteran

extensive receiver published a cryptic message on social media reputedly voicing his displeasure with the decision.

Cooks became one of the maximum hotly-mentioned names in this year's change market, however a deal by no means materialized.

Under this year's Texans offense, the six-time 1,000-backyard wideout is failing to attain his star

potential. He has simply 354 yards and one landing thru seven video games this season.

It's turning into pretty clean that Cooks desires out of Houston.

With Cooks not likely to take the sector and Nico Collins formally out with a groin injury,

Davis Mills and the Texans' passing assault may be quite starved heading into tonight's matchup. Phillip Dorsett,

Chris Moore and Tyron Johnson may be compelled to step up as the following wideout options.Tonight's sport will kickoff at 8:15 p.m. ET in Houston.
