Sammie Coates: Waived by Kansas City

Coates was waived by the Chiefs on Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Coates' time with the team didn't last very long, as he just signed with the team back in February. Coates was always going to be hard-pressed to make Kansas City's final roster, as the team's roster boasted plenty of talented catchers before his arrival.

Sammie Coates: Signs with Chiefs

The Chiefs signed Sammie Coates on Friday, Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Analysis: Coates has found a new home after being released by the Texans in mid-December. While he has some NFL experience under his belt, the Chiefs have plenty of talent in the wide receiver group, so he will have his work cut out for him to latch on to the 53-man roster.

Sammie Coates: Works out for Cowboys

Coates worked out for the Cowboys on Friday, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Coates was cut by the Texans on Tuesday, and has wasted no time in searching for a depth role elsewhere in the league. If Coates were to land in Dallas, he'd likely serve a deep depth role behind Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, Cole Beasley, Allen Hurns and Tavon Austin (groin).

Sammie Coates: Released by Houston

Coates was released by the Texans on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Coates appeared in 12 games with the Texans this season, but caught just one pass on two targets as he spent of majority of his time on special teams. The 25-year-old Auburn product will look to catch on elsewhere with the 2018 regular season winding down.

Sammie Coates: Clear for Monday's game

Coates (illness) is active for Monday's game against the Titans.

Analysis: Coates received the questionable tag after being added to the injury report Saturday with an undisclosed illness, but he's apparently good to go Monday. The 24-year-old should serve his usual role as the Texans' No. 4 wide receiver with DeAndre Hopkins (foot) and Keke Coutee (hamstring) both active.

Sammie Coates: Dealing with illness

Coates is questionable for Monday's game against the Titans due to an illness.

Analysis: Coates was a late addition to the injury report and did not participate at Saturday's practice. The 25-year-old has made only one catch this season and with DeAndre Hopkins and Keke Coutee avoiding injury designations this, is unlikely to significantly involved offensively even if able to play.

Sammie Coates: Option to fill in for Fuller

Coates and Vyncint Smith are the in-house options to fill in for the injured Will Fuller (knee) in Week 9 against Denver, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Coates has served as the primary return man this season while playing just 35 offensive snaps in 2018. With Keke Coutee (hamstring) uncertain, both Coates and Smith may get increased chances, although we expect a heavy reliance on Houston's ground attack, which has averaged nearly 165 yards over the last two games.

Sammie Coates: Set to play Sunday

Coates (hamstring) was a limited participant in Friday's practice but does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Analysis: It looks like Coates' limited participation in practice this week was all precautionary, as the wide receiver will not be on the Texans' injury report heading into the weekend. Expect Coates to suit up and be a feel go against Dallas on Sunday.

Sammie Coates: Limited with hamstring injury

Coates was limited in Wednesday's practice with a hamstring injury.

Analysis: Coates caught his first pass of the season for 12 yards Sunday against the Patriots, but apparently didn't leave the game unscathed, as he's now dealing with a hamstring injury. The Texans hope Coates -- along with rookie Keke Coutee -- to fill the void left by Bruce Ellington (hamstring), though it was Coutee who dominated targets Sunday.

Sammie Coates: Catches first pass of the season

Coates caught his lone target during Sunday's 37-34 win over the Colts, picking up a gain of 12 yards.

Analysis: Despite the big numbers the Texans' offense put up, it was a quiet debut for Coates as he sought to help fill the void left by Bruce Ellington. Instead, it was rookie Keke Coutee, also making his debut, who walked away with 11 catches. Between DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller, and -- potentially now -- Coutee, there might not be a ton of room for Coates' role to grow. He next takes on a Dallas defense that ranks sixth in the league in opponent receiving yardage per game.

Sammie Coates: Catches one in return

Coates caught his lone target for 12 yards in Houston's Week 4 overtime win against Indianapolis on Sunday.

Analysis: Coates returned to active duty after missing two games with a hamstring injury. Even with Bruce Ellington (hamstring) sidelined and Will Fuller (hamstring) leaving Sunday's game, Coates opportunities were limited, as rookie Keke Coutee (15 targets) emerged as a leading threat.

Sammie Coates: Good to go Week 4

Coates does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Analysis: Coates missed to regular season games due to a lingering hamstring injury, but appears fully recovered in time for the Texans' Week 4 matchup. The fourth-year wideout will work to earn targets behind DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller.

Sammie Coates: Inactive in Week 3

Coates (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Analysis: The Texans will be down two of their depth wideouts in Week 3 with rookie Keke Coutee (hamstring) joining Coates on the inactive list. Those two absences leave Vyncint Smith in line for work in four-receiver sets, though he's unlikely to poach many snaps from starting trio DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller and Bruce Ellington.

Sammie Coates: Considered questionable

Coates (hamstring) is listed as questionable on the Texans' injury report ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Giants.

Analysis: Coates was trending in this direction, as he was a limited participant in practice all week. He played through the injury in Week 1, but ultimately sat out last week's loss to the Titans. Final confirmation on his status is not expected until closer to kickoff, but he is just expected to play a depth receiver role if he is indeed given the green light.

Sammie Coates: Limited in practice again

Coates (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Analysis: Coates was limited in practice all last week before being held out of Week 2's game against the Titans due to a lingering hamstring injury. With Will Fuller (hamstring) and Keke Coutee (hamstring) also limited to begin the week, the Texans could enter Sunday's game against the Giants thin at the wideout position.

September 19, 2018 2:45 PM EST

Sammie Coates: Downgraded to out

Coates (hamstring) will not play in Sunday's game against the Titans, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Coates was limited at practice throughout the week. It seemed like he had a shot to suit up Sunday, but that option has ultimately been ruled out. Fellow depth receiver Keke Coutee (hamstring) has also been ruled out leaving the Texans very thin at the position. As a result, Vyncint Smith could see another relatively healthy workload.

Sammie Coates: Questionable to play Titans

Coates (hamstring) is questionable to play in Sunday's game against the Titans.

Analysis: Coates was a limited participant in practice all week due to an unspecified hamstring injury. With Keke Coutee (hamstring) also uncertain to play, Vyncint Smith could be in store for another significant offensive workload this weekend.

September 14, 2018 2:19 PM EST

Sammie Coates: Limited Wednesday

Coates was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice due to a hamstring injury.

Analysis: Coates was one of three receivers limited by a hamstring -- Will Fuller and Keke Coutee being the others. He is expected to play Week 2 against the Titans, but after playing six snaps on offense last week, so we don't foresee him making a big splash.

September 13, 2018 5:54 AM EST

Sammie Coates: Suiting up Week 1

Coates (hamstring) is active for Sunday's tilt against the Patriots.

Analysis: Coates was limited in practice during the week and it's unclear if he'll be limited at all in Sunday's game. Will Fuller (hamstring) is out, meaning that Coates could operate as the No. 3 wide receiver and see some extra action against New England.

September 9, 2018 8:37 AM EST

Sammie Coates: Questionable for Sunday's contest

Coates (hamstring) was limited during Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Analysis: The Texans could be seriously skimp at wide receiver, since Coates, Will Fuller and Keke Coutee are all questionable with hamstring injuries. That leaves DeAndre Hopkins, Bruce Ellington and Vyncint Smith as the only healthy wideouts.
