Will Fuller Returns to the Practice Field for the Houston Texans

Patrick D. Starr

The Houston Texans welcomed back wide receiver Will Fuller to the practice field on Monday. The Texans are expecting the bye week to help the roster with health, and it appears the return of Fuller is one. The Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson first reported the return of Fuller to practice. 

The Texans are not releasing an injury report until Wednesday, which leaves Fuller's status for the game uncertain. 

Fuller has not practiced with the team since injuring his hamstring in the first quarter of the Texans' loss to the Indianapolis Colts in week eight. 

Wide receiver Kenny Stills has taken the snaps for Fuller in his absence, but the return of Fuller to the practice field is a positive for the stretch run of the season. 

Fuller has been the Texans' best deep threat on the season, and he has caught 34 passes for 450 yards and three touchdowns.
