Texans rookie receiver DeAndre Hopkins left last night's game with a concussion.

Rams receiver Chris Givens caught another pass of greater than 50 yards in last night's preseason game. He had a five-game streak of games with 50-yard receptions in 2012 and has a ton of big-play ability.

Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal left yesterday's practice in an ambulance and has been diagnosed with a bruised lung and a concussion.

With Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson out for the Packers last night, tight end Jermichael Finley had four receptions for 78 yards to lead the team in receiving.
