Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller is still battling a groin injury so will he be ready to play against the Buffalo Bills Saturday? Let’s take a look.

The Houston Texans are in the postseason and their 2019 regular season campaign is over.  The crusade is over and they’ve done the things that they’ve needed to do get into the playoffs.  This is their 4th postseason berth in six seasons in the Bill O’Brien era so obviously this is at least a stat to note.

There will be knocks about how weak the AFC South is but there’s plenty of parity within this division with all of the teams — the Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans having some degree of talent on their respective rosters.

It just happened to be that the Houston Texans made the strongest push, even with a schedule that was a lot stronger than last season’s.  I had expected them to finish 8-8 at best and 10-6 is where they ended up so it goes to show how much this team has grown as a collective unit.

There’s a lot of work to do ahead and the first goal that they need to achieve is to win a playoff game, something that has not come that often over the past six seasons. They’re capable but the cylinders need to be firing in order for that to happen.

A key component of the Houston Texans drive to succeed in the postseason rests somewhat on the shoulders of wideout Will Fuller, a deadly offensive weapon.

However, Fuller has not been healthy much this season, missing five games because of injury and

he has missed 14 games over the past two seasons.

He’s been mostly on the shelf with a hamstring injury but his most recent was with his groin, sustained against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

O’Brien said that he’s “progressing” but did not want to commit one way or the other in regard to him being available this Saturday afternoon against the Bills.

So here were are — another week of uncertainty for Fuller and we shouldn’t be too surprised about it.

I’m positive Kenny Stills, Keke Coutee and DeAndre Carter would fill-in for him just fine but it’s best to have the team’s fastest player out on the gridiron.

Next. Texans have a chance to avenge sports history against Bills. dark

There’s hope but I won’t hold my breath…

Fuller, 25, has caught 49 balls for 670 yards — 13.7 yards per catch — along with three touchdowns this season coupled with a catch percentage of 60.9 through 11 starts this past season.
