DeAndre Hopkins (hand) is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Steelers.

Hopkins apparently suffered some sort of a hand injury last week, but it wasn't enough to even limit him at practice this week at all. He should be just fine for this week's match-up with the Steelers who allow an average of 226 yards through the air each week.

Andre Johnson (ankle) participated fully in practice Saturday, and is probable for Monday.

Johnson was never in danger of missing this week. He was limited in practice early in the week but that was more for rest than it was because of an actual ankle injury. A full practice Saturday indicates that he is more than ready for Monday night against the Steelers who allow an average of 226 passing yards per game this season and rank 22nd in the league against opposing teams' No. 1 wide receiver.

Brian Cushing (knee) is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Steelers.

Cushing had missed practices early in the week and then was limited Friday. He was able to put in a full practice Saturday and should be fine for Monday's game against thew Steelers. You can feel comfortable with using him in IDP leagues.

Jadevon Clowney (knee) was limited in practice on Saturday and is listed as questionable for Monday night's vs. the Steelers.

Being as he would play on Monday night, he is a risky option in IDP leagues. If possible, I would wait another week before planning on him helping you in fantasy, but it is looking like he may be active for a couple games prior to the Texan's Week 10 bye.

DeAndre Hopkins (hand) practiced in full for the second straight day Friday.

Hopkins was limited earlier this week with a hand injury, but the issue wasn't considered serious, and he's dismissed all concerns over the ailment. He's probable for Sunday, but Hopkins looks to be good to go against the Steelers on Monday night.

Andre Johnson (ankle) was limited in practice on Friday.

Johnson is perpetually limited in practice, so this doesn't seem to be anything to worry about. Johnson should be fine for Monday night's game and remains a must-start given the number of targets he receives and the red zone looks he gets.

Arian Foster (hamstring) practiced in full on Friday.

Foster is good to go for Monday night and should be active in every format. The Steelers allow an average of 111.8 rushing yards per game this season and have coughed up six rushing touchdowns.

Brian Cushing was limited in practice on Friday and is listed as questionable for Monday.

Cushing has been limited with a knee issue all week and while he's questionable for this week, it's hard to believe that he'll miss Monday's game against the Steelers. Check on his practice schedule for Saturday just to be sure.

Texans center Chris Myers missed practice Friday for a personal reason. He'll be back with the team on Saturday.

There doesn't appear to be anything to worry about right now, so all should be well come Monday's game. Keep an eye on practice reports over the weekend just to be sure.

Jadeveon Clowney was present at Friday's practice.

The Texans are calling Clowney a game-time decision for Monday night. He took part in a limited practice Friday and was said to be moving around well, so the Texans will watch him more at practice Saturday and will hopefully have a better idea as to his potential availability before you have to set your lineup.
