Apparently, DeAndre Hopkins’ Yeezy cleats will only have a one-week appearance.
Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Texans wide receiver will not wear them anymore on the field after the NFL fined him $6,000 for a uniform violation.
DeAndre Hopkins said wearing Yeezy cleats a one-time thing for him in a game. He got fined about $6,000.

Hopkins and Broncos All-Pro Von Miller wore shoes from rapper Kanye West’s very expensive shoe line. There is no word yet on a fine for Miller.
The receiver caught 5 passes for 54 yards and a touchdown in the Texans’ season-opening 23-14 victory over the Chicago Bears.
The Texans parted ways with possibly the best player in franchises history, Andre Johnson, last season but Hopkins stepped into those big shoes better than anyone could’ve expected.
He was excellent in 2014, catching 76 passes for 1,210 yards and 6 touchdowns. However, in his first season as a No. 1 receiver in 2015 he could not have been put in a more disadvantageous position. The Texans couldn’t settle on a starting quarterback and running back Arian Foster was hurt for most of the season. Hopkins excelled, catching 111 passes for 1,521 yards and 11 touchdowns.
