Getting the news in 2019 is a convoluted thing. It’s pretty much a game of telephone. Bill O’Brien recently stated, on Adam Schefter’s podcast, that he likes where Will Fuller’s health is right now and that the wideout could return by training camp after tearing his ACL last season.
This was reported by Sarah Barshop and Twitter, which was then posted on Rotoworld, which is now regurgitated once again by me here at your favorite Houston Texans site. Here’s the link to Schefter’s podcast if you miss listening to Bill O’Brien and want to hear it straight from the source.

This is great news for Houston. Fuller tore his ACL in Week Eight after posting 5 catches for 124 yards and 1 touchdown. Last season, Fuller was on his way to 1,000 yards, 100 catches, and maybe scoring double-digit touchdowns before a deep heave pass attempt ripped his knee up.
Fuller has yet to play 16 games in a season in his NFL career. He’s entering his fourth season. He should be the second wide receiver on what could be a spectacular receiving group that includes DeAndre Hopkins, Keke Coutee, DeAndre Carter, Ryan Griffin, Jordan Akins, and Jordan Thomas. If Fuller is healthy entering 2019 and plays an entire year, it’s absurd how good this group could be.
Hopefully Fuller stays on track and is out there running really far and fast once August comes sweltering on in.
