It looks like Houston Texans’ wide receiver Will Fuller will make 2017 debut against the Tennessee Titans.

Houston Texans’ second-year wide receiver Will Fuller just returned to the practice field last week after suffering a broken collarbone back in early August.

Texans’ head coach Bill O’Brien has been hinting this week that Fuller will finally make his 2017 regular season debut after missing the entire preseason.

Fuller told the Houston media on Thursday that he feels like he’s ready to go.

Fuller says he’s looking forward to playing with rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson.

So far Watson has been mostly targeting wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins through the first three weeks of the season. Even with Fuller returning, I don’t expect that to change.

I do believe that Fuller could end up becoming Watson’s second most targeted player.

With fellow second-year wide receiver Braxton Miller not doing very much so far this year, it may not be a bad idea for the Texans to have either Fuller or Bruce Ellington play in the slot since they’re both very explosive wide receivers and have the ability to make big plays. This of course is something that Houston is still waiting for when it comes to Miller.

Fuller coming could also force defenses to have to take some of their attention away from Hopkins, which in turn could really help their passing game.
