In some positive news for the Houston Texans wide receiver, Will Fuller is entering training camp avoiding the physically unable to perform list. Fuller is coming back from a torn ACL that ended his 2018 season which saw him set a career-high 15.7 yards per reception.
Fuller did not participate in any off-season work but was with team personnel rehabbing his knee for the upcoming season.
Former Texans general manager Brian Gaine gave the last update on Fuller's health before the start of the NFL Draft.
“Everything’s going well with Will,” Gaine explained. “I won’t speak to specifics, but I anticipate when we kick off versus New Orleans, he’ll be ready to go. He’ll be at full speed by then. I’m sure through the preseason, we’ll be smart and efficient with him as it relates to getting him right. Everything has gone well. There’s been no setbacks, been very positive. Everything’s trending in the right direction. He’s been here the whole offseason. He’s looking good – mind, spirit, body – everything’s going well for Will and we’re excited about seeing him get back on the field.”
Monitored by medical personnel heading to practices, Fuller is likely to work into the flow of the game leading to their week one contest in September against the New Orleans Saints.
Expect Fuller to take part early in individual drills with his position groups and one-on-one drills. Then once confidence starts to build that’s when the team will begin working Fuller into group and team sessions on the field.
