Wednesday PM update: Johnson was listed as limited on the official Wednesday injury report, while Fuller was not listed at all. That’s good news for Fuller.

The Houston Texans returned to practice on Wednesday for their Week 3 matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers, and they had a couple key cogs back in action. Wide receiver Will Fuller and running back Duke Johnson were both spotted practicing, according to reporter Aaron Wilson. The team will release a full injury report after practice with information on specific statuses.

Fuller played in Week 2, but was not targeted in the game and came out at one point to get his leg stretched out. Soft tissue injuries have been an issue for Fuller in the NFL, and makes him a shaky fantasy start week in and week out. The upside is among the elite receivers, but injuries remain a problem.

Johnson suffered an ankle injury in Week 1 and did not play in Week 2. He will remain the backup to David Johnson, but his experience as a pass catcher offers some flex value in deeper leagues. He’s worth tracking once healthy and has more snaps under his belt.
