Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien has confirmed that wide receiver Will Fuller V has indeed suffered a torn ACL. He was injured in the team’s win over the Miami Dolphins on Thursday Night Football.
Fuller V is now lost for the season as he will have to have surgery in the near future.
“Right now, I’m very disappointed for Will,” O’Brien said.
He suffered the injury as he attempted to catch a deep pass in late in the game, as he attempted to make a catch in the fourth quarter in the end zone.
Fuller V had his best game of the season prior to the injury. He had five receptions for 124 yards and a career-long 73-yard touchdown reception against the Dolphins defense.
His effort helped the Texans win their fifth straight game. They now stand at 5-3 on the season after beginning the season on a three-game losing streak.
This loss is a tough blow, because he was the team’s lone deep threat. Now, Deshaun Watson and the offensive coaching staff will have to change their game plans moving forward.
Rookie Keke Coutee — when he returns from injury — should be placed in the starting spot opposite DeAndre Hopkins.
The third-year receiver had 32 receptions for 503 yards in seven games. He also had four touchdowns.
However, with Watson as the quarterback, had 11 touchdowns in 11 games.
