Texans WR Will Fuller will be a game-time decision vs. Colts
Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien says that wide receiver Will Fuller will be a game-time decision for his team’s game against the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night, according to James Palmer of NFL Network.
Fuller has been sidelined since injuring his hamstring during the Texans’ first meeting with the Colts back in Week 7.
In the seven games he has played this season, Fuller has logged 34 catches for 450 yards and three touchdowns.
The 25-year-old, who played his collegiate football at Notre Dame, was originally selected by Houston in the first round (21st pick overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft.
He played in 14 games, during his rookie campaign, catching 47 passes for 635 yards and a couple of scores.
Since then, injuries have been a regular occurrence for Fuller.
A broken collarbone limited him to just 10 games in 2017, and during the time he was on the field, he registered 28 catches for 423 yards and seven scores. Then, last season, a hamstring issue followed by a torn ACL limited Fuller to seven contests, and he went on to snare 32 balls for 503 yards while reaching the end zone four times.
When healthy, Fuller is a significant piece of the Texans’ passing game, so if he is unable to go in what could be a season-deciding matchup against he Colts this week, it would be a big blow for Houston.
The Texans lost to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, falling to 6-4 on the season. With the loss, Houston fell into a first-place tie with Indianapolis in the AFC South. However, the Colts currently own the tiebreaker, as they defeated the Texans in Week 7.
