Helmet-less DeAndre Hopkins at the center of practice brawl

The Texans host the 49ers in their second preseason game Saturday night at NRG Stadium.

During long stretches of the 49ers' December 10 win in Houston last season, the depleted Texans seemed to be limited to one offensive focus, receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

Joint-practice season is here, and so are the fights. "Ward has remained on the field, but is just running on the side and is no longer practicing".

The two engaged with Ward throwing several punches at a helmetless Hopkins. Hopkins appeared to have his helmet swatted off by Ward while attempting to make a catch, and the two exchanged shoves afterward before launching into all-out swings.

Who knows? Maybe the more-than-noticeable heat and humidity in Houston forced tempers to flare between Ward and Hopkins.

Let's recap all the action between the 49ers and Texans from Wednesday's practice, shall we?
