In an unfortunate side note for the Houston Texans after a primetime win over the Miami Dolphins 42-23, it did not come without a price. The Texans lost wide receiver Will Fuller after tearing his ACL after being grabbed by a cornerback on a pass interference call near the goal line. The Texans had a MRI set up on Monday to get the complete answer on Fuller’s knee and the results came back with unfortunate news.
"Will Fuller tore his ACL and will be out for the season." O'Brien said in his Monday press conference.
"I am very disappointed for Will, because Will is a great guy who has really been playing at a high level."
Fuller had 5 receptions for 124 yards with his biggest play coming on a 73-yard bomb off the arm of Deshaun Watson pushing the Texans lead to 28-17. The vertical threat in Fuller had 5 receptions for 124 yards and a touchdown against the Dolphins.
Fuller missed the first game of the season due to a hamstring injury but has been an instrumental player to the offense. For the season, Fuller has 32 receptions for 503 yards (15.7 yards per catch) and five touchdowns.
