Sources: Brandin Cooks expected to play; Phillip Dorsett to join Texans

Texans veteran wide receiver Brandin Cooks is primed to play Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts after dealing with an illness this week, according to league sources not authorized to speak publicly.

Cooks returned to practice Friday after missing the previous two days with a non-COVID-19 illness.

Cooks leads the Texans with 62 receptions for 704 yards and three touchdowns.

Cooks is officially listed as questionable.

Meanwhile, veteran wide receiver Phillip Dorsett is signing with the Texans after visiting the AFC South franchise on Friday, according to a league source not authorized to speak publicly.

Dorsett was cut this week from the Seattle Seahawks' practice squad.

Dorsett, 28, is a former Indianapolis Colts first-round draft pick from Miami.

He has also played for the New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks and Jacksonville Jaguars.

In 2018, Dorsett caught seven passes for 66 yards and one touchdown in a game against the Texans.

For his career, Dorsett has caught 124 passes for 1,634 yards and 11 touchdowns.
