Keke Coutee Makes NFL Debut, Promptly Smashes Records [Video]
I'm starting to sound like a broken record in these blogs, and I love it. Another former Red Raider dominated this weekend and it was a record-breaking rookie debut.
Keke Coutee looked like Antonio Brown for the Houston Texans on Sunday as they got their first win of the season, taking down the Colts in overtime, 37-34.
The Texans are 1-0 with Coutee on the field. Coincidence? I think not.
Deshaun Watson and Keke Coutee showed immense comfort with each other, and Coutee found holes all over the field on route to 11 catches on 15 targets. Both numbers led the team. The catch number also breaks the modern era record for most catches in an NFL Debut. Coutee's 11 catches went for 109 yards.
Those 11 grabs set a modern-era record for most receptions by a player in his debut, breaking the record of 10 catches last touched by Anquan Boldin in 2003.
The Texans drafted Coutee in the fourth round with immediate expectations, but a hamstring injury kept him out until Sunday. Coutee now has the opportunity moving forward to be the team's no. two wide receiver after Will Fuller left with an injury to his own hamstring.
