The prolific wide receiver is active for the game as he continues to battle through an ankle injury. Hopkins, for his part, was adamant about playing, but the Texans' trainers wanted to see him work out before the game. Hopkins told NFL Network's James Palmer before the game he was "good to go."
It makes sense the Texans are taking a cautious approach with their star wideout. With the team on the cusp of clinching the AFC South division title -- a win Sunday over the Eagles would secure the crown -- there's no reason for the team to be foolhardy with one of the NFL's top playmakers. But the team appears confident he'll be fine to play.
With Miller inactive, running back D'Onta Foreman is active for the first time since suffering a torn Achilles tendon last season.
Here are some other injury updates from Rapoport heading into Sunday's games:
- Los Angeles Rams star running back Todd Gurley is considered a game-time decision heading into Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. Gurley, the league's No. 2 rusher with 1,251 yards on the season, will work out before the game. While Gurley expressed confidence earlier this week he would play, his status for the game remains undetermined.
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver DeSean Jackson will return from a thumb injury that forced him to miss the last three games.
