After taking a wicked shot over the middle, Will Fuller left yesterday’s game with what appeared to be a rib injury and did not return. It now looks like Fuller will miss at least the Texans’ next game.
#Texans WR Will Fuller suffered cracked ribs in their loss to the #Rams, I’m told. But the damage is not extensive & he may just miss one game.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 13, 2017
With the season quickly approaching the point of no return—if it’s not there already—it doesn’t make any sense to rush Fuller back. He already missed time this year with a broken collarbone. Here’s hoping the Texans bring their WR2 along slowly. There’s no justification for taking any more unnecessary risks in 2017. This team has to make all decisions from here on out with an eye toward 2018.
