We’ve reached the point where the Texans are unbearable without Will Fuller. This isn’t to say they are disgusting to watch. This is to say there’s a better reality out there and we are stuck in this one when Fuller isn’t out on the field. The offense, the playcalling, the scoreboard...all of it is dramatically different when Will Fuller V is out there for the Texans.
He was probable to play this week. He’s been dealing with the same hamstring injury. It doesn’t matter. Fuller will be suiting up against the Buccaneers today. That’s all that matters. Here are the inactives for today:
Keke Coutee is still in the doghouse, and it looks like Jordan Thomas is nuzzling with him in there too. Benardrick McKinney suffered a concussion against the Titans last week and was ruled out yesterday (along with Jacob Martin), but Tampa Bay understands running the football is an affront to God, and B-Mac’s absence probably won’t matter much this week, though it’ll definitely matter if McKinney isn’t cleared for next week’s season finale against the Titans.
Again, Fuller is active, and that’s all that matters.
Here’s who won’t be playing for the Buccaneers.
Bucs' inactives vs. Texans: WR Chris Godwin, DT Beau Allen, TE Tanner Hudson (all injured), OLB Kahzin Daniels, T Jerald Hawkins, TE Jordan Leggett and G Aaron Stinnie. So the three new arrivals -- WRs Grayson and Schnell and TE McElroy -- are all live.— Greg Auman (@gregauman) December 21, 2019
The big news is that Chris Godwin is out. That’s all that matters. I have no idea who the rest of these guys are, and I’ve watched like 90% of the Bucs’ games this year.
We’ll see you at 12 p.m. when the Texans kick off Week 16 against the Buccaneers.
