As impressive as the Texans’ throttling of the Dolphins was last night, the good guys did not emerge unscathed. Several starters (Johnathan Joseph, Kareem Jackson, Kendall Lamm, Zach Cunningham) suffered injuries that saw them leave the field; some didn’t return to action against the Dolphins, though there doesn’t appear to be much concern—at least not yet—about their availability going forward.

Will Fuller also went down with an injury last night, and the speculation isn’t nearly as optimistic for him.

If the initial thoughts are accurate, this is obviously a big deal for the remainder of the Texans’ season, especially with Keke Coutee fighting a hamstring injury of his own. DeAndre Hopkins is not mortal, but he can’t do it all by himself for another eight plus games.

Should Fuller be lost for the season (and if it is an ACL tear, he surely is), what should the Texans do to address the attrition at wide receiver?

UPDATE: Will Fuller’s ACL is torn and he will miss the rest of the season.
