The Houston Texans will be without both Alfred Blue and Will Fuller for week one.
Without any surprise at all, Houston Texans’ starting wide receiver Will Fuller has been ruled out of this Sunday’s season-opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Texans also won’t have back up running back Alfred Blue on the bench as he continues to deal with an injured ankle.
I wouldn’t expect Fuller to make his 2017 debut until some time in October or possibly in November. It all depends on how quickly he heels up as well as what kind of shape he’s in.
With Fuller out and Jaelen Strong suspended for week one, my guess is that Bruce Ellington will get the start opposite of DeAndre Hopkins after a very strong preseason.
The Texans also have wide receiver Andy Jones. He could see the field as a fourth receiver.
When it comes to Blue, the Texans will be in good shape with rookie D’Onta Foreman now healthy and ready to back up starting running back Lamar Miller.
It will be interesting to see whether or not Foreman steals some goal line carries from Miller right off the bat.
Texans made some roster moves.
The Texans reached injury settlements with both safety Lonnie Ballentine and cornerback Denzel Rice.
This means that Ballentine and Rice are no longer on the Texans’ roster and are free to sign with another NFL team.
