The Houston Texans can only hope that Will Fuller won’t miss too much time after going down with a rib injury.
Houston Texans’ wide receiver Will Fuller suffered a rib injury during Sunday’s loss to the Los Angeles Rams.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported on Monday morning that Fuller suffered a cracked rib and could miss one game. Of course there is a chance he could miss more time.
Fuller has had a monster season, since coming back from a broken collarbone back in week four. He already has seven touchdowns, but has slowed down since rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson went down with a season ending ACL injury.

Fuller hasn’t scored a touchdown over the past two games and and less than 50 total yards.
If Fuller does have to sit out next week, he’ll miss a home game against the Arizona Cardinals, who also have their own struggles on offense without their top running back and quarterback.
Even if Fuller does miss some time, veteran wide receiver Bruce Ellington should be able to fill in without a problem. The only issue when it comes to Houston’s offense is starting quarterback Tom Savage, who has been a mess since taking over for Watson.
All we can hope for is that with each passing week, Houston’s offense will get better. While things were perfect against the Rams, they did look a little better since their loss to the Indianapolis Colts in week nine.
Comment below and let us know how you think Fuller’s absence will hurt the Texans.
