Texans WRs Brandin Cooks, Nico Collins out Thursday vs. Eagles

Houston Texans wideout Brandin Cooks will not play on "Thursday Night Football" against the Philadelphia Eagles, the team announced ahead of the game.

Cooks expected to be moved before Tuesday's NFL trade deadline, but the Texans' lack of flexibility on trade demands, and the fact that Cooks' $18M salary is fully guaranteed next season, made it impossible to close a deal, a source told ESPN's Ed Werder.

Cooks, who missed practice on Tuesday and Wednesday due to personal reasons, took to Twitter shortly after the trade deadline had passed, posting a cryptic tweet seemingly voicing his displeasure at not being dealt.

Cooks leads the Texans in yards (354), receptions (32) and targets (53) this season. He has produced six 1,000-yard receiving seasons but is in the midst of an underachieving season averaging 50.6 yards per game, his second-lowest per game average of his career.

The Texans second-leading receiver in yards in Nico Collins (446) was also ruled out for the Thursday night matchup due to a groin injury.
