DeAndre Hopkins will donate his playoff check to the family of a 7-year-old Houston-area girl killed in a drive-by shooting Sunday.
Jazmine Barnes was killed when a pickup truck pulled up next to the car she was in and started shooting. The Harris County Sheriff's Office said they believed the shooting was random and they have not identified the gunman.
Hopkins will earn $29,000 for Saturday's game against the Indianapolis Colts.
"You hate to hear what happened," Hopkins said. "The city of Houston is always supportive of me, of this team, so I felt in my heart that it was only right that I give back to those who are down. Man, it's a tough situation what happened. It's tough man. What I can do ... that's nothing. That won't bring back a person. I'm not trying to make it about me or anything like that. It's the least I could do."
