The Texans’ season hasn’t gone like it was supposed to. The same for DeAndre Hopkins’ week. Hopkins was forced to address an obscene video posted on his Instagram account Wednesday. The rookie wide receiver said his account was hacked. Sunday, Hopkins was pulled from a 28-23 loss to the Oakland Raiders at Reliant Stadium due to making multiple mental errors. “Bottom line, DeAndre made a lot of mistakes early in the game, so we gave another guy a chance to play,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said. Hopkins acknowledged his issues. The No. 27 overall pick of the 2013 draft continues to learn that the NFL season only gets tougher and more demanding as the year unfolds. “It’s a long season, but we can endure it,” said Hopkins, who only had one catch for seven yards against the Raiders.
