DeAndre Hopkins back to work with Texans

HOUSTON (AP) After a brief holdout, Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins was back to work on Monday catching passes from quarterback Brock Osweiler.

''I wasn't trying to send a message or anything like that,'' Hopkins said. ''I was doing what I felt was best for me and my family.''

Hopkins started training camp on the reserve/did not report list after failing to report to the team's facility by midnight on Friday.

On Sunday, Hopkins missed the first practice but then hours later the Texans announced his reassignment to the active list, ending his brief holdout.
