Houston Texans’ wide receiver Will Fuller will miss his second straight game with a rib injury.

On Saturday, the Houston Texans released Friday injury report ahead of Monday night’s clash with the Baltimore Ravens and there is some good news.

First of all, star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins was upgraded to full participation after missing practice on Wednesday and being limited on Thursday. He’s been dealing with a foot injury this week.

Another full participant was cornerback Kevin Johnson, who’s been in the concussion protocol all week. It looks like he could end up being cleared and ready to go for Monday’s game.

Texans’ offensive lineman Chris Clark, running back Alfred Blue, pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney and defensive end Joel Heath, were all also upgrade to full participation.

Unfortunately, the Texans have already ruled out wide receiver Will Fuller, and offensive linemen Greg Mancz and Julie’n Davenport.

With Fuller being out, once again Bruce Ellington will get the start opposite of Hopkins. He had a pretty good game last week while starting in place of Fuller against the Arizona Cardinals. Ellington caught six passes for 63 yards.

I’m not sure how much Ellington will be able to help this week against a good Ravens pass defense. But he is an explosive player that can blow a game wide open. Hopefully Ellington will make some big plays to keep Houston in the game.
