Interim coach Romeo Crennel said Monday that there is "a good possibility" Cobb (toe) will not return in 2020, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old was placed on IR shortly after injuring his toe Week 11, and Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports that the veteran slot man could require offseason surgery. If it's indeed deemed that Cobb isn't fit to return for the Texans' final three games, Keke Coutee and Chad Hansen will continue seeing increased playing time. Cobb is under contract with the Texans for 2021, after which point the team has a potential out that would leave them with only $2 million in dead money against the cap.

Cobb (toe) awaits further medical information and is considering not playing again in 2020, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb remains in a medical boot for the injured toe suffered Week 11 against New England and is evaluating whether it makes sense for him to play again. The receiver awaits a doctor's recommendation, due next week, about whether Cobb should undergo surgery, regarding whether he should undergo surgery and not play again this season, or rehabilitate the toe and attempt to play. If Cobb opts to shut it down, Keke Coutee and Chad Hansen would be the primary beneficiaries.

Cobb (toe) has been placed on IR.

EDGE Analysis

With Cobb on IR and set to miss at least three game and Kenny Stills (quadriceps) ruled out for Thursday's game against the Lions, look for Keke Coutee to see an uptick in playing time as the Texans' No. 3 receiver behind Will Fuller and Brandin Cooks.

Cobb (toe) is seeking a second medical opinion, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Lions, but he's not accepting the initial diagnosis of a season-ending injury until he hears from a second doctor. Cobb was injured early in Sunday's win over New England and replaced by Keke Coutee, who caught his first touchdown of the season.

Cobb (toe) is in danger of being placed on injured reserve, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb is expected to miss at least Thursday's game against the Lions due to the severity of his toe issue, and being placed on IR would rule him out for a minimum of two additional weeks. An absence of any length for the veteran slot man could open up additional playing time for Keke Coutee, who scored his first TD of the season during Sunday's 27-20 win over the Patriots.

Cobb (toe) is expected to sit out Thursday's game against the Lions, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb had an MRI on his injured toe Sunday, and the results suggest the veteran slot receiver will likely miss his team's Week 12 tilt. Keke Coutee, who scored a touchdown after Cobb's departure in Sunday's win over the Patriots, will fill in for Cobb in the slot. Fellow Texans wideout Kenny Stills (quadriceps) got more encouraging news, as he hasn't been ruled out for his team's Thanksgiving Day tilt.

Cobb underwent an MRI on the foot injury he suffered during Sunday's 27-20 win against the Patriots, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb didn't return to the field after recording a three-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Kenny Stills (leg) also had an MRI, so the Texans receiving corps will be one to monitor in the coming days to see if absences are on the horizon.

Cobb (foot) won't return to Sunday's game against the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

With Kenny Stills (leg) also injured Sunday, Keke Coutee is in line for added looks in the Texans' Week 11 passing game alongside Brandin Cooks and Will Fuller.

Cobb suffered a foot injury during Sunday's game against the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb was targeted twice before his departure, with the final one a three-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter. That said, he came up hobbling at the end of the play and now is deemed questionable to return. If Cobb is unable to come back Sunday, Kenny Stills and perhaps even Keke Coutee will be in line for additional work.

Cobb caught three of five targets for a team-high 41 yards in Sunday's 10-7 loss to Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb finished third in targets and catches behind Brandin Cooks and Will Fuller on a rainy, windy day in Cleveland that put a cap on downfield passing. No wide receiver on either team crossed the 50-yard mark.
