Texans rookie DeAndre Hopkins has a history of head injuries, which has slowed his return

Two years ago Houston Texans rookie wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, the  former Clemson Tigers’ second-leading receiver, suffered a mild concussion in a car accident, and did not travel with the team to the Discover Orange Bowl in Miami. The good news was that Hopkins didn’t have any other serious injuries, and was able to join his teammates for the game.

Now an NFL rookie, Hopkins has been slow to recover from an August 17 concussion and still has not been cleared. Concussions are becoming a bigger problem in the NFL.  Earlier this year Arizona Cardinals draft pick Ryan Swope retired from football never even playing a game, because of concussion symptoms.  This is becoming a problem in the NFL, but I believe the testing is getting harder and harder to pass. This will cut down on lawsuits in the future.  As of right now, be cautious where you draft the young wide out from Houston in Fantasy.
