Report: Will Fuller unlikely to play Sunday night

HOUSTON, TX - OCTOBER 2: Will Fuller #15 of the Houston Texans returns a punt for a 67 yard touchdown as Tennessee Titans defenders pursue in the third quarter during the NFL game between the Tennessee Titans and the Houston Texans at NRG Stadium on October 2, 2016 in Houston, Texas.

The Texans will host the Colts on Sunday night and Indianapolis comes into the game with a pair of questions at cornerback thanks to injuries to Darius Butler and Patrick Robinson.

Houston’s ability to take full advantage of any absences in the Colts secondary might be compromised by an injury of their own, however. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that wide receiver Will Fuller is unlikely to play due to a hamstring injury.

Fuller was a limited participant in practice all three days during the week, but it seems caution about sending the rookie out there at less than 100 percent is carrying the day. Fuller has 20 catches for 327 yards and two touchdowns in the first five weeks of the season.

No Fuller would leave DeAndre Hopkins, Braxton Miller and Jaelen Strong at wideout for the Texans in a game that should offer opportunities through the air against the league’s 28th-ranked pass defense.

    Colt defense sucks…thanks, Grigson. Only have Tampa Bay and San Francisco ranked below them in my rankings, for what it’s worth…

    How did this game make the Primetime schedule? I mean honestly … when they put the schedule together did they think this was going to be a good game? The AFC South games should all be buried in the cluster of early games every single week until any of those teams show any signs of being competitive outside of each other. I know it’s not the only reason, but when you keep hearing about ratings being down, Colts vs. Texans isn’t gonna help out with that what so ever.

    This should be a great game between the two teams that should battle for the AFC South title. Despite missing Fuller, Houston is loaded with talent at WR. Jaelen Strong and Braxton Miller are both awesome. Osweiler is getting the hang of his new surroundings, and the Colts O-Line is starting to get better. Rookie O-Linemen don’t usually dominate their first month of their career, but I’m starting to see improvement up front. This could be a high scoring game. Look for 2nd year WR Dorsett to have a breakout game for Indy.
