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.
