Austin Hooper (appendix) practicing fully for Browns

Cleveland Browns tight end Austin Hooper (appendicitis) is practicing in full for Week 10 against the Houston Texans.

What It Means:

The Browns have already confirmed that Hooper will return to the field on Sunday for the first time since Week 6. He averaged 7.7 targets, 5.0 receptions, and 47.7 yards in the three games prior to injuring his appendix. Hooper's return will likely take snaps from Harrison Bryant and David Njoku.

Hooper is the No. 3 overall tight end in numberFire's Week 10 fantasy rankings. Our models project him to score 8.8 FanDuel points against a Texans defense allowing the 10th-most FanDuel points per game to the position. Hooper has a salary of $5,100 on FanDuel's Week 10 main slate.
