The Houston Texans will be without their second best wide receiver Will Fuller on Sunday as he was listed on the Week 14 inactive list.
Not having wide receiver Will Fuller for the Week 14 game, the Houston Texans offense could have a slow start against the Denver Broncos, that is until they figure out their game plan without one of their top players on the unit.
The good thing for the is the Texans have had to deal without having Fuller in the lineup more than once in his NFL career and this season.
Fuller has missed three games this season, and with this being the fourth game he’s missed, the Texans should know how to handle this situation. Houston does have top wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, along with Kenny Stills, DeAndre Carter, and even Keke Coutee who hasn’t seen much playing action in ’19.
Fuller this season has 42 receptions for 598 yards with three touchdowns, and 14.2 yards per reception this season, so not having him is tough. Fuller’s best game thus far in ’19 came in Week 5 against the Atlanta Falcons where he totaled 14 receptions for 214 yards with three touchdowns.
Below are all the players listed on the inactive list for the Texans in Week 14 via a tweet by the Texans PR page:
For the most part entering this Week 14 game the Texans are healthy, so the loss of Fuller is the biggest of this week. As for the Broncos inactive list, it consists of the following players for Week 14 via their official Twitter page:
The loss of offensive guard Ronald Leary for the Broncos is their biggest loss, as that can help add to the defensive pressure the Texans need to put on Drew Lock in his second NFL start. Denver will have Von Miller on their defense this game, though he’s battling injuries of his own.
Even without Fuller in this game, the Texans still should gain the win, and have the advantage when comparing the two rosters.
