Brandin Cooks (calf) still sidelined for Texans

Houston Texans wide receiver Brandin Cooks (calf) is not practicing on Wednesday.

What It Means:

Cooks is believed to have injured his calf at practice last week, because he was a mid-week addition to the injury report before being ruled out on Friday. Nico Collins will be the Texans' No. 1 receiver again in Week 14 versus the Dallas Cowboys if Cooks remans sidelined. The passing attack will have a tough draw against Dallas, but Davis Mills will at least be an upgrade over Kyle Allen from the past two weeks. Collins led the Texans with 10 targets last week, followed by Jordan Akins (7) and Brevin Jordan (5).

numberFire's models project Cooks for 6.7 targets, 4.2 receptions, and 48.9 yards in Week 14. The Cowboys have the No. 1 overall defense and No. 1 pass defense in numberFire's adjusted efficiency metrics this season, so the Texans are likely going to have trouble moving the ball through the air.
