Here are your daily Texans stories to kick off your work week:
Fuller adjusting to strength required in the NFL by Aaron Wilson, Houston Chronicle
"Wrestling through jams at the line of scrimmage to break into his patterns, Texans rookie wide receiver Will Fuller is adjusting to the nuances of escaping press coverage one week into his first NFL training camp.Although Fuller is arguably the fastest player on the roster with a 4.28 time in the 40-yard dash, the first-round draft pick has to grapple with older, stronger cornerbacks to create separation into the secondary."
This was going to take some time for him to adjust to. There is simply no simulation that can prepare a new receiver for what NFL DBs will do to him, and it may be frustrating at first but it’ll just take time for him to learn.
