Houston Texans coach David Culley said it was coming, and the official report finally came on Wednesday afternoon.

“There could possibly be some coming on,” Culley told reporters on Wednesday. “We have a couple of players that are getting re-tested right now. That way we will know a little bit more, probably after 30 to 60 minutes, however long it takes them to get the test. But there are some more guys that are being tested. They are voluntarily being tested.”

The Texans placed three players on the COVID-19 reserve: receiver Brandin Cooks, linebacker Eric Wilson, and kicker Ka’imi Fairbairn. Assuredly the trio will miss the Week 16 tilt with the Los Angeles Chargers.

Houston also placed tight end Jeff Driskel, who was on the practice squad, on injured reserve.
