WR Brandin Cooks says Texans had a better week of practice

·1 min read

The Houston Texans didn’t finish Week 6 on a great note.

Not only did the Texans take it on the chin 31-3 to the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium, which came after a players only meeting, but receiver Brandin Cooks stated that in order for a team to be disciplined, each individual player has to want to be disciplined.

At 1-5 and with a rookie quarterback under center starting for four of the team’s five-game losing streak, it would be easy to choose discouragement, especially when the Texans have the 6-0 Arizona Cardinals Sunday at 3:25 p.m. Central Time at State Farm Stadium.

However, according to Cooks, the Texans had a better week of practice leading up to their Week 7 encounter.

“[Discipline] is through practice, and I think we’re having a better week of practice in our process,” said Cooks. “We’ve got to continue to trust it and be consistent at it, and hopefully those things will show up in the game, as well.”

Cooks has been arguably the Texans’ most consistent player with 40 catches for 481 yards and a touchdown. The former 2014 first-round pick is on pace to have another 1,000-yard season and a decent chance at going over 100 catches.

The 28-year-old wideout says the players didn’t have a meeting this week, but merely went “straight to practice.”
