Deandre "Nuk" Hopkins won't be playing in the upcoming Pro Bowl due to a calf injury. The same injury also sidelined him in the Texans' season finale which snapped a 79-game healthy streak to start his pro career.

Hopkins had 96 catches (6th in league) for 1,378 yards (fourth in league) and a league-high 13 touchdowns. The 13 receiving scores were also most in franchise history even though he had to catch passes from three different quarterbacks this season. Hopkins has totaled nearly 6,000 receiving yards over five seasons (5,865) with 36 touchdowns.

This is the second time that Hopkins made the All-Pro team as he was on the second-team in 2015. He and Andre Johnson are the only Texans player to make first-team All-Pro on offense in franchise history.
