Will Fuller is close to making his 2017 debut for the Houston Texans.

Despite all of the injuries that the Houston Texans have been dealing with this season, they received some good news on Monday.

Second-year wide receiver Will Fuller was back on the practice field as he continues to make his way back after suffering a broken collarbone way back in early August.

Sarah Barshop of ESPN broke the news on Monday.

Given the timeline that Barshop mentioned in the tweet above, Fuller could end up only missing one or two more games. So this means he could be back in time for their week four match-up against the Tennessee Titans. Or against the Kansas City Chiefs in week five.

Houston could certainly use Fuller with Jaelen Strong now gone after getting released on Monday. The Texans also no longer have starting tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz after he suffered a concussion during their week one loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars

As good as the Texans top wide receiver, DeAndre Hopkins is, he’s not a receiver that can stretch the field the way Fuller can. So get the second-year receiver back should help their passing attack.

Fuller hauled in 47 receptions for 635 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie. HIs longest reception was for 53 yards. Fuller would have had better numbers, but dropped way too many passes.
