Will Fuller (knee) will undergo surgery this week.
Fuller will be sidelined 6-9 months. His timetable has him returning at some point in training camp if he avoids setbacks. Fuller has been one of the most injury prone wideouts in the league the last three seasons, playing in 31-of-48 career games. The Texans will need to make a decision on his fifth-year option this offseason. Oct 28 - 8:45 AM

Coach Bill O'Brien confirmed Will Fuller suffered a torn ACL in the Week 8 win over the Dolphins and is done for the season.

Just brutal. Fuller exploded for a 5-124-1 night against the Dolphins before tearing the ACL on a deep shot late in the blowout win. The Texans are now headed into a mini-bye and need to figure out their receiving corps. Keke Coutee (hamstring) wasn't close to playing Thursday night. Bruce Ellington (hamstring) remains on I.R. and can't return until Week 12 at the earliest. Vyncint Smith was next man up against Miami, playing eight late snaps. He's the in-house favorite for the No. 2 role at the moment, but Houston will almost certainly add some help.

The Houston Chronicle reports the Texans fear Will Fuller suffered a torn right ACL in Thursday's win over the Dolphins.

Friday testing will confirm, but it certainly appears Fuller's age-24 campaign is over. It's a crushing blow to a Texans offense that has flirted with dominate at times this season. When healthy, Fuller has lid-lifting speed that few can match, clearing space for DeAndre Hopkins. If Fuller is indeed done, rookie Keke Coutee will have to carry an enormous load opposite Hopkins. Fuller is a special talent, but it is possible he heads into 2019 having appeared in just 31-of-48 possible career games.

Will Fuller was forced from Thursday's game against the Dolphins with a right knee injury and will not return.

Fuller was injured on a fourth quarter play where he was getting mugged in the end zone. Fuller went down and immediately massaged his knee. He was helped to the sideline and quickly ruled out. The Texans were routing the Dolphins at the time, but a quick rule out is never a good sign, especially for a player with Fuller's injury history. Fuller had feasted before going down, catching 5-of-6 targets for 124 yards and a 73-yard touchdown. Hilariously, Fuller was left wide open on his score when Bobby McCain incorrectly thought he had safety help.

Will Fuller (hip) isn't listed on the Week 8 injury report.

Fuller should be close to 100 percent after playing through a hip injury last week. With Keke Coutee (hamstring) sidelined and DeAndre Hoping getting shadowed by Xavien Howard, Fuller has a great Week 8 matchup.
Oct 24 - 5:43 PM

Will Fuller has significant production splits with and without Keke Coutee on the field.

It's notable for Week 8 because Coutee is not expected to play after aggravating his hamstring in last week's win. Whereas Fuller has finished below 70 yards in each of Coutee’s four appearances, Fuller’s stat lines with Coutee on the shelf are 8/113/1 and 5/101/1. Fuller also led the Texans in Week 7 receiving yards as Coutee didn't play the full game. You can read more stats and analysis like this in Evan Silva's Dolphins-Texans writeup at the link below.
Oct 24 - 2:12 AM

Will Fuller caught 6-of-8 targets for 68 yards in the Texans’ Week 7 win over the Jaguars.

Fuller led the team in receiving and tied DeAndre Hopkins for the team lead in targets, a good sign after Fuller spent the last two weeks effectively running wind sprints as a decoy with three targets in each game. Hopefully, finally over his longstanding hamstring injury, Fuller should resume WR2/3 treatment when the Texans face the Dolphins on Thursday Night Football next. Keke Coutee (hamstring) won’t play, freeing up a few extra targets for Fuller.
Oct 21 - 5:56 PM

Will Fuller (hip) wasn't listed on the Texans' final injury report for Week 7 against the Jaguars.

Fuller was limited at all three practices this week, though there was never much concern about his status for Week 7. In a tough road matchup, Fuller is best viewed as a low-end WR3.
Oct 19 - 3:57 PM

Will Fuller (hip) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

The Texans have been managing Fuller's practice reps all season. He's been quiet since the arrival of rookie Keke Coutee and could be in for another slow week against Jacksonville's elite secondary.
Oct 18 - 4:32 PM

Will Fuller (hip) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Fuller was listed with a hip injury after dealing with hamstring issues the last few weeks. This doesn't look like a concern for his Week 7 status.
Oct 17 - 4:29 PM

Will Fuller hauled in 2-of-3 targets for 33 yards in the Texans' Week 6 win over the Bills.

It is the second down game in a row for Fuller, who did not have his first catch until the fourth quarter and whose biggest contribution was drawing a DPI deep down the field to set up a game-tying field goal. He should have had a long touchdown before those plays, but Deshaun Watson just missed him. The duo will hit on those plays eventually, but it might not happen next week in Jacksonville. Fuller will be more of a WR3 in that spot.
Oct 14 - 4:42 PM

Will Fuller (hamstring) remained "limited" on Thursday.

Fuller will play, but it is unclear how healthy he is. He struggled in Week 5 as Keke Coutee once again soaked up targets. Fuller is on the WR2/3 borderline for Week 6.
Oct 11 - 4:33 PM

Will Fuller (hamstring) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

The Texans have been listing Fuller with a hamstring injury for weeks, though he hasn't missed a game since the opener. Fuller got off to a booming start with 100-plus yards in each of his first two games this year but has slowed down the past two weeks, totaling just six catches for 64 yards during that span. He'll be a WR2/3 for Sunday's home matchup against Buffalo.
Oct 10 - 4:37 PM

Will Fuller caught 2-of-3 passes for 15 yards in Week 5 against Dallas.

It was the first time Fuller was held under 100 yards in a game he wasn't injured in this season. Fuller came into Sunday night questionable with a hamstring setback, so he may not have been 100 percent. This should go down as one of Fuller's worst games. Fuller gets a matchup with Buffalo in Week 6.
Oct 8 - 12:07 AM

Will Fuller (hamstring) is active for Week 5 against the Cowboys.

Keke Coutee is also active after being a game-time decision. Inactive for Houston are WR Vyncint Smith, CB Aaron Colvin, LB Brian Peters, DE Christian Covington, OT David Sharpe, DE Carlos Watkins, and LB Daeshon Hall
