Texans fans were justifiably more than a little worried when word came down Sunday morning that Will Fuller was unlikely to play against the Colts that evening. Although Fuller did suit up for the game, he stayed on the sideline throughout as Jaelen Strong played nearly every snap opposite DeAndre Hopkins in Fuller's stead. Although Strong acquitted himself well in relief of Fuller on Sunday night, the Texans' offense is far more dangerous with the threat of Fuller getting behind a secondary.
Consequently, the issue of whether Fuller will be in the lineup in Denver on Monday night is a sizable one. On that note, there appears to be some optimism. Although no official announcement about Fuller's return has been made by the team, Fuller sure sounds like someone who'll be playing against the Broncos.

In a season that's already seen starters like Nick Martin, J.J. Watt, and likely Kevin Johnson lost for the year to injury, this rare bit of positive injury news is a welcome relief.
