Will Fuller won’t miss significant time after leaving Sunday’s loss to the L.A. Rams.
The Houston Texans’ receiver suffered cracked ribs in the loss, but the damage is not extensive and he may just miss one game, per a source informed of the injury.
Fuller downplayed the injury after the game.
“I’m feeling good,” he said, via the Houston Chronicle. “They’re a little sore. I should be OK.”
Like the rest of the Texans’ offense, Fuller soared with Deshaun Watson under center and has struggled since the dynamic rookie went down with a knee injury. From Weeks 4 through 8, Fuller compiled 278 total yards on 13 receptions and a whopping seven touchdown catches. With Tom Savage under center the past two weeks, the wideout has four catches for 47 yards and zero touchdowns.
Fuller missed the start of the season after suffering a collarbone injury in early August.
Bruce Ellington’s role should increase if Fuller is out of the lineup Sunday versus Arizona.
