With just two more wins the Houston Texans will guarantee themselves a first-round bye in playoffs. Standing in their way is a Philadelphia Eagles team that presents a huge challenge, but that challenge might be easier knowing that DeAndre Hopkins is healthy.

According to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter, Hopkins is expected to play in today's game after previously dealing with an injured ankle.

Per the report, Hopkins will test out the injury in warm-ups, but should be good to play.

In last week's win over the New York Jets, Hopkins had a season-high 170 receiving yards and the game-winning touchdown.

Hopkins has led the Texans in receiving yards in each of the last five seasons.

He currently has 94 receptions for 1,321 yards and 11 TDs. He has only missed one game in his six-year career.

The Texans have never beaten the Philadelphia Eagles, who will be using backup QB Nick Foles in today's game.

The game will be played at 1 p.m. EST on CBS.
