Brandin Cooks took over where Will Fuller left off when the NFL suspended Fuller last season.

In his final four games, after Fuller’s suspension, Cooks made 29 catches for 431 yards and three touchdowns. (Cooks was inactive for Week 14’s game against the Bears.) The Texans expect more of that from Cooks this season with Fuller now in Miami.

“He’s a pro’s pro,” Texans coach David Culley said, via Aaron Wilson of Sports Talk 790. “He’s been in this league for a little while. He’s had success in this league. He’s a leader. He’s exactly what our football team needs moving forward.
