Bill O’Brien: Will Fuller ‘is going to be fine’

Texans WR Will Fuller is dealing with a hamstring injury. He was not on Wednesday’s report but showed up on Thursday, which is not ideal.

Friday morning update: Coach Bill O’Briens said on Friday that Will Fuller “is going to be fine, wanted to give him a little rest. He’ll practice today,” per The Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson. The Texans wide receiver crew appears to be completely healthy for their game against the Vikings in Week 4. After three tough matchups, the Vikings look to be a team the Texans can put up some fantasy statistics on this weekend.

The Houston Texans returned to practice on Thursday and a familiar face popped up on the injury report. Wide receiver Will Fuller was added to the report as limited with a hamstring injury. He did not appear on Wednesday’s report so this would seem to be a new issue.

Fuller appeared to be slowed by a hamstring injury in Week 2, but it was never announced and he did not show up on the Week 3 injury report. Fuller has dealt with soft tissue injuries throughout his NFL career, so his status for Sunday is uncertain for the moment. He seems a good bet to be listed as questionable on Friday’s final report.

The Texans are hosting the Minnesota Vikings at 1 p.m., so we’ll know early whether or not Fuller is available for fantasy football managers. The rest of the Texans’ wide receivers are available for Sunday. If Fuller is unable to go, Kenny Stills could see a nice little bump in snaps. Brandin Cooks would be the top big play threat while Randall Cobb would potentially see a boost in targets as well.
